If you are somebody who is a frequent flyer or simply likes to travel with no excess luggage surprises then follow the following hacks to ensure a smooth and stress-free travelling experience.
Store stuff in shoes
A really smart and straightforward packing hack is to utilise the area within your shoes by stuffing them with a pair of socks or even putting in fragile things like a small perfume bottle or a jewellery pouch etc.
The power of packing cubes
Contrary to popular opinion, packing cubes are not a fancy accessory – they are super useful when it comes to organising your luggage any way you prefer. They come in extremely handy when you look for things after reaching your destination, hence saving you lots of time.
Rumour has it, once you start using them, there is no going back. Bring out the inner Kon-Mari in you and invest in one right away!
Double wrap for double protection
Are you anxious about toiletries ruining your favourite top? The best way to avoid any unexpected spill is to silicone or plastic wrap the tops of the bottles. This extra layer of protection will surely put your mind at ease.
The scent of a suitcase
Take a few dryer sheets and throw them in between your clothes. This is one of the easiest and cheapest packing hacks to keep your clothes smelling nice and fresh. Who doesn’t want to open a suitcase that has a scent of peonies or lavender?
Straws are storage saviours
If you plan on bringing along the pretty and delicate accessories with your outfits then use a straw to out your necklace through – even a reusable one. This actually works!
Also, in order to keep everything together and damage-free, try storing rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets or any tiny stuff in a pill container. Again, great use of something already at your place.
