Rolling your clothes instead of folding them means you can fit so much more into your case!

2. Put heaviest items closest to wheels

This distributes the weight and makes carrying your luggage around a lot easier and lets the wheels do all the work!

3. Use every space

Stuff shoes with things like socks, wires and underwear to save on room. Putting your shoes in an old shower cap also protects dirty soles from your clothes!

4.  Put toiletries in waterproof bags

For all those little bits a pieces you want to take away with you this is a fantastic way of keeping it all together and making sure it doesn’t get tangled.

When packing clothes that wrinkle easily, lay the clothing flat inside a dry-cleaning bag, and then fold as normal. The plastic will prevent creases from setting in.  If you don’t have a dry-cleaning bag, normal plastic bags or tissue paper work just fine too!

7. Re-use a Tic-tac container

Stick your hairpins and clips inside an old Tic-Tac container to easily keep track of them.

8. Use straws for necklaces and bracelets
