Suitcase Packing Hacks

Following is a list of amazing hacks to pack a suitcase like a pro:

Start Thinking About What You Need

Over 60% of people in the US travel 1-2 times per year, and their major issue with traveling they can’t decide what should they pack with them. First of all, you need to understand the purpose of your trip, i.e. are you traveling for a business trip or a family outing? Start packing a few days in advance, so you have time to consider what items you need. Also, consider the weather conditions where you are going so that you can keep your stuff accordingly. Priorities things accordingly to avoid any confusion.

Chose The Right Size Of The Suitcase


Choosing the right size suitcase is an important step towards a successful and stress-free trip. Size your suitcase based on how long your trip is and how many days you will stay there. Remember that you will take the things you keep in this suitcase that can be kept in it easily.

Use Packing Cubes

Packing Cubes

Make sure to divide all of your belongings into distinct categories, such as clothing and accessories, before you start packing. There are many different sizes of packing cubes available on the market; therefore, it is important to keep in mind which packing bag is most suitable for your belongings. You are free to select a unique hue for each member of your family's set of packing cubes.

Pack an Extra Change of Clothes in Your Carry-On


This is a good idea, especially for parents who are going with their kids. It's a good idea to bring an extra set of clothes in your carry-on bag since mistakes can happen and bags can go missing. Fold your clothes as tightly as you can and put them in Ziploc bags. Before you seal each bag, take out as much air as you can.

If, like me, an orange juice glass falls on you during a trip, put the wet clothes in a Ziploc bag. If you have dirty diapers or just need a place to throw away trash, these bags will come in handy.

Lay It All Out In The Suitcase

First of all, you should put heavy items in your suitcase. Keep large items in the middle of the suitcase, like jeans, shirts, and jackets. Place packing cubes in a layer on top if you use packing cubes. You can also use the top part of your suitcase to store belts, hats, etc.

Roll Clothes, Don’t Fold

By keeping clothes rolled, we can free up more space, reduce wrinkles, and find things easily. Start laying the clothes on neat and clean surfaces and rolling them neatly. Roll the fabric tightly to prevent any stretch or damage.

Pack The Heavier Item On The Bottom

Pack the heavy items on the bottom, making it easier for us to lift or carry them somewhere; also, we will be able to raise them stably. After placing it, its stability will be tested to determine whether it has been placed properly.

Put The Shoes In A Plastic Bag

Plastic Bag

Putting the shoes in a plastic bag is used for a different purpose. It can protect your clothes from specks of dirt and different germs. Put the shoes in the corner of the suitcase on top of heavy items; this will make it easier for us to find them.

Put The Small Item Inside The Shoes

Select small and lightweight items and place them in your shoes that will fit well in your shoes. Roll and fold small items, such as socks, and place them carefully inside your shoes. 

Summing Up

Mastering bag packing means making the most of the room you have, keeping things organized, and making sure your things arrive in the best shape possible.  Don't forget to bring the clothes and electronics you'll need. Also, don't forget to make your trip as comfortable as possible by bringing must-have items that will make the trip less stressed.
