As much as we all love getting away and spending time relaxing by the pool or the beach, we know just how much of a nuisance the packing can be beforehand! We’ve come up with these top packing hacks to help make your job easier!
1. Roll clothes
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
Putting toiletries in waterproof bags will help to prevent any spillages leaking onto your clothes!
5. Use pill cases to store small items like jewellery
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.
6. Wrinkle-free Clothes
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
String necklaces and bracelets through straws to keep them from tangling in your suitcase.
9. Pack dryer sheets
Putting dryer sheets in your suitcase between your clothes will keep your clothes feeling and smelling fresh when you unpack them!
Put Clingfilm over bottle tops then put the lid over the top to help prevent leaks.
