Quick Tip Tuesday: How to Stay Organized When Packing
A few months ago I found out about packing cubes and you guys, these are a game changer. I first saw another blogger share them on InstaStories and my mind was so blown that I immediately ordered them. These will completely change the way you pack and help you stayed organized when traveling! Traveling can be stressful enough so I love this traveling and packing hack to help make the travel experience go smoothly!
So here is why you should use packing cubes!
- You have a limit on the amount of stuff you can bring! I make a deal with myself that I can only bring what fits in the cubes. This helps prevent overpacking, which I am known to do. And while it limits you somewhat, don’t be fooled by the size of these cubes. You can fit a TON! I can fit clothing for a week of vacation, plus spare outfits, in these cubes!
- Your suitcase stays organized. There is nothing worse than a crazy, thrown together suitcase. These cubes keep everything in their place and you won’t open your suitcase upon arrival to find a giant mess! You can also color code your cubes and know that your stuff is pink, kid’s are blue, husband’s are green, etc. It makes unpacking extremely easy.
- You can keep your items in the packing cubes to help keep items clean. I worry sometimes about the cleanliness of the dressers at hotels. I love to just throw my entire cube into a dresser drawer to help keep it clean.
- Weigh ins at airline counters are less stressful! I am known to pack way more than the 50 lb limit in my suitcase. If you find that you are overpacked, you can just grab a cube and throw it into your carry on!
I purchased a set of travel cubes for my Mom and she has purchased two more sets as gifts, she loves them so much! These are a serious travel game changer and one of the best purchases I have made!
I have tried three different brands of packing cubes and I swear by the E-Bags brand. They are not the cheapest of the varieties, but the fabric and quality is definitely the best with this brand. If you are looking for a more budget friendly version, this version has great reviews, too!
