Packing has to be one of the most frustrating things about traveling. We usually have so many things we want to bring and yet so little space to pack them in. The easiest way to deal with this is to buy a larger suitcase. The second easiest way is to maximize your suitcase space. Here are some hacks on how to do it.
Roll Your Clothes and Pack Them Vertically
Rolling instead of folding your clothes and packing them vertically will do wonders in saving you some valuable space. It will also keep it from wrinkling as a bonus.
Use Compression Bags
This requires some investment, but it is one that will pay off handsomely. By sucking out the excess air, the clothing items will shrink and give you much more space. They can also be a great way to organize your suitcase as you can group similar clothing items like T-shirts.
Use Efficient Packing Techniques
Having an efficient packing technique will help you save a lot more space compared to just throwing items in. You should pack larger and heavier items at the bottom and then use gaps, corners, and edges for smaller items.
Pack Inside Your Footwear
The inside of your footwear can be used as an extra space that would be otherwise unused. You can place a couple of socks inside each shoe or other smaller items like chargers and toiletries.
