It's that time of year where there is sure to be plenty of travel on the calendar. With that in mind, let's take a look at how to maximize your space when packing up your luggage! There is no perfect science to this, but I am happy to share a few simple tips and tricks to make the most of available space in your luggage and make the overall experience of packing less stressful. Let's get started!
| TIP 1 |
Seek out organizational products to maximize your luggage space. I few of my favorites are these Tidy Snaps and Packing Cubes! Tidy Snap is a company I discovered on Instagram. I've loved following their account to see the variety of products they offer to organize clothing. They're easy as a SNAP; your clothes are perfectly rolled up and contained, giving you more room to add a few more of your favorite pieces. I purchase the Packing Cubes from The Container Store. Each size is available for individual purchase, or in a package of of 3 (sizes small, medium and large). These are the perfect travel solution for toiletries, makeup, electronics, etc.
| TIP 2 |
Pre-select your outfits and toiletries before placing in your bag. I've found that when you have a clear visual of everything beforehand, you'll have a better idea of how to organize them inside your bag, no matter if it is big or small! For those quick trips, I try to keep my packing minimal. Selecting staple pieces allows for more options and the opportunity to mix and match, leaving even more space for additional necessities.
| TIP 3 |
Designate each side of your suitcase to specific items. Keep clothing and shoes to one side, with toiletries and electronics on the other. This will help you keep everything organized, and make everything clearly visible and easily available when you arrive to your destination. See the images below for examples of how I used the Tidy Snaps and Packing Cubes for a trip of my own!
