Between deciding what to take on your vacation and ensuring that you meet all of the airline’s baggage requirements, packing can certainly be a grueling task. Fortunately, there are some ways to help you pack quicker and more efficiently than ever before, preventing you from repacking if you don’t get it right the first time. Here are some hacks to help you optimize your packing efficiency.
The Rule Of Three
When it comes to packing shoes, only pack three pairs. While one should be a sneaker, the other should be a casual sandal and loafer, while the remaining pair should be smarter shoes for the evening. This way, you’ll have shoes for every occasion without any redundancy.
Roll And Fold
While many of us automatically fold our clothes flat, you may be surprised to learn that this is not the ideal way to pack them. Rather, roll softer garments in order to fit more in, while folding stiffer pieces such as buttoned shirts in order to avoid creasing them.
Take Travel-Sized Toiletries
If your trip is short-term, then travel-sized toiletries are the way to go. After all, why take larger bottles if you know you’re not going to use everything? If you’ve already bought everything you need in regular-sized bottles already, simply pour some of the liquids into smaller bottles to save space.
