Some Packing Tips

Some Packing Tips

  • rolling t shirts and pants (but not the more delicate items)
  • stuffing socks or other small items in shoes
  • bring a plastic bag and pack it with some items, and get the air out of it. Seal it up, and you’ll have more space (also it makes you feel better in case something spills)
  • putting a necessary amount of shampoo and conditioner in those reusable plastic travel bottles (seriously, don’t bring a liter of liquid)
  • try to pack items “vertically”. A lot of people pack the heavy items on the actual back of the suitcase, but it makes the weight distribution very difficult to manage. Instead, you can imagine how your suit case will look standing upright, and then pack it (kind of like a fridge, if that makes sense)
