How to pack a travel bag is something that we struggle with every vacation! It’s not because of the difficulty of putting our clothes and personal things inside it, but there’s always something that we forget, or that we carried much more than what we really needed, among other things.
If you’re about to take a trip of any kind, it doesn’t matter if it's just for a weekend, or for half a month, these travel tips will help you pack your luggage faster — without forgetting necessary items.
Make a packing list
Write down all the things you think you’ll need for your trip. At the end, check if you can dispense with some or if you forgot to include others. Above all, write what can not be missing for anything in the world. At the time of packing the suitcase, check off what you are putting into it.
Roll up your clothes
It sounds funny, but rolling clothes instead of folding them can save a lot of space.
Fill Empty Spaces
This seems like obvious advice, but actually there are empty spaces in the corners and even inside your shoes that you can fill with small things. It can be socks, or bags for makeup, lotions, etc.
Prevents Fluid Spills
It’s horrible to open the suitcase and that some liquid has exploded in flight. For this you have two options: put the bottles that carry liquids to a bag or case that has a closure or can be sealed, or put plastic film on the bottles. This can be done by removing the caps, placing the plastic on top and closing the cap over the plastic.
Put valuable things in your Carry-on luggage
Everything of value is best carried with you: money, personal documents, tablets, laptop, jewelry, credit cards, etc.
Weigh Your Luggage
Lastly, weigh your luggage. Don’t set yourself up for a bad surprise of having to pay for overweight luggages at the airport, it’s better to be safe than sorry. If you don’t have a luggage scale, just weight yourself on a home scale, then step off, and when you step back on - hold you luggage. Subtract your weight from the total and there you have it!
