6 Packing Hacks That Make Traveling Easier for Me

Traveling is supposed to be fun, right? But how many times have we found ourselves wrestling with our suitcases, trying to fit everything in? Too many to count. That’s why I’ve honed in on these six packing hacks that have become absolute lifesavers. From keeping your clothes wrinkle-free to maximising space, these tricks will help you pack like a pro.

My Top 6 Favorite Packing Hacks

1. Crease Protectors for Shoes

First up, let’s talk about keeping those shoes in tip-top shape. Shoes can easily get squished and lose their form while traveling. My go-to solution? Crease protectors. They’re simple, inexpensive, and they keep your sneakers looking fresh and new. Just pop them into your shoes before you pack them, and voilà, you’ll arrive with your footwear looking just as good as when you left.

2. Roll Your Clothes

Moving on to a classic with a twist – rolling your clothes. This is a game-changer for saving space and reducing wrinkles. But here’s the twist: use rubber bands or hair ties to keep each roll tight. This little hack prevents your clothes from unrolling and getting tangled. Plus, it makes it super easy to find what you’re looking for without messing up your neatly packed bag.

3. Packing Cubes

Packing cubes are the MVPs of organized packing. These little lifesavers not only keep your clothes organized but also compress them to save a ton of space. I categorize my clothes into different cubes: one for tops, one for bottoms, and so on. It’s like having drawers in your suitcase, making unpacking a breeze. Trust me, once you try packing cubes, you’ll never look back.

4. Wear Your Heavy Clothes

This one might sound a bit odd at first, but hear me out. Wearing your heaviest clothes and shoes on the plane can save a lot of suitcase space and weight. Think about it: those boots and bulky jackets don’t need to take up precious space in your bag if they’re on you. This tip is especially useful if you are visiting places like York in Maine, where the weather can get quite cold. Plus, airplanes can get chilly, so it’s a win-win for comfort and packing efficiency.

5. Bring Laundry Bags

Keeping clean clothes separate from the dirty ones is always a challenge while traveling. My simple solution? Laundry bags. These are not just for laundry day at home; they’re perfect for separating your clothes while on the move. Plus, they make it super easy to do a quick load of laundry without having to sort through your entire suitcase.

6. Don’t Roll Belts

Lastly, let’s talk about belts. You might think rolling them saves space, but there’s a better way. Lay your belt in a loop along the edge of your suitcase. It takes up virtually no space and keeps your belts from getting twisted or damaged. This little trick also works great for long necklaces or earbud cords.
