Packing For Holidays - How To Make The Most Of Your Space

Knowing a few packing tricks to save space in your 10kg suitcase can transform your travel experience, making it more convenient and enjoyable. Deciding what to bring and what to leave behind can be daunting, but with these simple tips, you can ensure all your essential items make the trip.

Efficient Packing Strategies

  1. Roll Your Clothes
  2. Place Shoes at the Bottom
  3. Wear Bulky Items
  4. Create a Packing List
  5. Avoid Using Luggage Pouches
  6. Plan to Wash Clothes
  7. Don’t Procrastinate
  8. Use Soft-Sided Luggage
  9. Buy Toiletries at Your Destination

1. Roll Your Clothes Rolling clothes helps save space in your suitcase. However, you may need an iron upon arrival for wrinkle-prone items. Lay out easily creased garments flat at the bottom. Roll non-creasing clothes into cylinders, and group thin items like T-shirts together.

2. Place Shoes at the Bottom Always pack shoes first. Ensure they’re clean and pack clothes around them. Utilize the space inside your shoes for small items like socks and ties.

3. Wear Bulky Items Coats and sweaters take up significant space. Save room by wearing these larger items during travel. Depending on the weather, you might carry them instead, as they don’t count towards your carry-on hard suitcase allowance on flights.

4. Create a Packing List Start by listing essentials for your trip. Once packed, assess the remaining space for additional items. This list becomes your go-to for future travels, ensuring you don’t forget important items.

5. Avoid Using Luggage Pouches Luggage often comes with multiple pouches for items like hairdryers and electronics. However, these pouches can add unnecessary bulk. Instead, use gaps and crevices in the main compartment for these items.
