Finally your vacation is here, but the thought of packing all this
into this is freaking you out. Stress-free travel starts with smart packing.
And while you probably already know that rolling your clothes saves space, take this trick to a new level
with this "fold and roll" technique. The key is to create even layers and maximize
every inch. Start with the bulkiest items. Stuff shoes
with small items like resealable bags filled with socks and underwear. Then, place
individual shoes along the edges of the case. Belts can also be laid along the edge.
Fill in gaps with the smallest rolls of clothing, things like t-shirts and camisoles.
Larger items like jeans, jackets, and dresses should then be laid in flat layers, and packed
in an overlapping layer formation. If there are gaps around the edges, take these flat-laying
clothes and tuck them into the sides. A bonus tip for blazers and other lined clothing
is to pack them inside out, to help avoid wrinkles.
You're doing great so far with light, space-saving packing, so don't get weighed down by toiletries
and other extras! Save empty travel-size bottles to refill and
use on trips over and over again. This saves space and time, and is good for the environment.
To avoid leaks and spills in your suitcase, place a square of plastic wrap over the bottles
before closing the cap. Empty prescription bottles are also great
for things like cotton swabs. An old contact case can be put to great use,
from storing small supplies of foundation and other makeup, to little necessities, like
safety pins. Keep delicate jewelry secure and tangle-free
by laying them out onto a sheet of press'n seal plastic wrap. Place another sheet on
top, then seal, roll, and pack away somewhere safe.
A great tip for keeping earrings together is to secure them through the holes of a button.
This way, they can be tossed into your cosmetic bag and still be super easy to find!
Finally, ditch the heavy stacks of books and magazines and go digital! Loading titles onto
your tablet or smartphone will save paper, money, and most importantly, your shoulders!
If all these great tips still haven't lightened your load, remember -- you can always sneak
the heavy stuff into your travel partner's bag!
