7 Tips to organize your suitcase
No matter where you are going, the last thing you want to do is pack your suitcase, especially when you do until the last minute. Considering the destination of your journey, the length, weather, the size of your suitcase and all the other factors, it’s easy to overpack or under-pack. Here we have some useful tips for you to perfectly organize your suitcase.
Make a packing list
Before packing, write down everything that you’re going to take with you. This will make sure you won’t forget anything essential.
Roll and fold your clothes
Rolling your clothes can prevent wrinkles and save more space. This method suits T-shirts, jeans and other softer clothes. While for stiffer ones, you’re better off carefully folding them.
Avoid too many shoes
Shoes take the most space of your suitcase. The principle here is no more than three shoes. If possible, wear the bulkiest one and pack the other two in a suitcase. Small stuff like socks, sunglasses and so on can be stored in your shoes to make the most of space.
Use packing cubes
Packing cubes are wonderful inventions that can keep your suitcase neat and organized. What’s more, you’ll find it more convenient to find exactly what you want in a minute with these packing cubes.
Use ziplock bags
How about small stuff that may get lost easily, such as keys, chargers, and adaptors? Well, you can put them in ziplock bags or plastic bags for security. As for breakable objects like wine glasses, put them between the buffer, your soft and thick clothes.
Prepare travel-sized bottles
Not only do many original toiletry bottles risk violating the regulations for liquids on a plane, but they take much precious space. So it’s necessary to prepare some travel-sized bottles for your lotion, essence, etc. There’re also mini products specially designed for traveling, including sunscreen and moisturizer.
Carry a first-aid kit
A first-aid kit will help a lot in case you had medical conditions while traveling. Normally, a first-aid kit will contain basic medications (Imodium, ibuprofen, etc.), alcohol swabs, plasters, antihistamine cream against mosquitoes and more. You can choose one according to your need. However, don’t bring a needle or scissors for flying.
