But luckily, there are plenty of packing tips and tricks that can make things easier. They’re space-saving, super smart, and easy to do ideas that make things less stressful. So check them out and let me know what you think!

Save Space by Rolling Clothes

Instead of folding your clothes, consider rolling them to prevent wrinkles and to maximize your luggage space. You’ll be surprised by how much more you can fit in this way.

Keep Clothes Smelling Fresh with a Dryer Sheet

Placing a dryer sheet between your clothing in your suitcase will keep your clothes smelling fresh and amazing no matter how long it takes you to reach your destination.

Slip Breakables in Shoes

Protect your breakables such as perfumes, sunglasses, or razors by slipping them into your shoes before packing them. The shoes will give extra cushion which will keep your things from breaking.

You can also use a sock for this tip instead of shoes. Whichever you prefer, both would work well.

Use Packing Cubes

Packing cubes are such a great travel organizer. They’re zippered fabric rectangular container that can be used for clothes or other kinds of gear. You can easily remove them from your suitcase, put into your drawer, and you’re done unpacking quickly.

Keep Belts in Shirt Collars to Keep Their Shape

If you’re bringing tops with collars, chances are upon packing them they’ll get wrinkled and lose their shape.

To keep them looking crisp and nice, all you need to do is put your belt under your shirt’s collar. It’s super simple and easy to do.

Stop Toiletry Bottles from Leaking with Plastic Wrap

When your toiletrie bottles start to leak, they can create a mess and ruin everything.

But by placing plastic wrap on top of the bottles and screwing the lid back on, you’ll make sure that nothing leaks.

Pack Jewelry in a Pill Case

Put your jewelry in a pill case when traveling so you won’t lose them and avoid tangling.

You can even organize them according to days and because the container is so small, it makes it super travel friendly.

Keep Necessities in Your Carry-On

Whether you’re flying an international or local flight, keeping your valuables in your carry-on bag is such an important thing. It helps you make sure that even if your checked baggage gets lost, you have your essentials with you.


Again, you don’t need to exert much time and effort into making packing efficient. There are always plenty of tips and tricks that can make your life a bit easier. So try these ideas out, and let me know how it goes!
