Packing may seem simple, but it is a science with rules that travellers often learn the hard way over thousands of miles on the road. Doing it strategically can be the difference between a harried vacation with countless detours to local drugstores and a streamlined one with everything you need at your fingertips.

Therefore, making a packing list a few days before your trip will save your time to pick up any last-minute items.

There are some popular strategies to pack your clothes:

i. Roll your clothes. This helps to maximize space and minimize wrinkles.

ii. Try the ‘filing method’, where the suitcase is thought of like a filing cabinet and the clothes stacked vertically.

iii. Or try the ‘clown car method‘, where this style of packing really does maximize space.

iv. Use packing cubes. These smaller bags help you keep your clothes compact and your outfits ordered. 

Besides, you have to utilize your shoes, don’t let any space go to waste. Fill them with socks, undergarments, or other small items. If they’re dirty, pack the shoes in a plastic bag or put a shower cap over the soles to protect the rest of your bag.

The remaining techniques consist of using re-sealable bags to separate liquids, hair products, cosmetics and accessories.

You can also purchase a few compression bags to pack for your dirty laundry during the trip. This can help you to save more space and buy more stuff from overseas.
