Packing Secrets For Your Next Summer Escape

by Grace Brooke

Needing a little escape this summer? It’s time to leave our stress at home and take off to our favorite escape. First, we need to pack our suitcase. Here are a few tips that will help you save money, time, and space. So let’s get packing! 

space bags

  • Space bags allow you to store a large amount of clothes while using a small amount of space and keep them wrinkle-free. Another plus? These bag s can be used for almost anything; jewelry, stuffed animals, blankets, shoes, pillows, anything that can be reduced to a smaller size or that needs to be kept clean! The bags are effective and affordable, see here.

 

  • Did you know when our U.S. soldiers’ travel overseas they are only allowed one duffle bag? Do you know what trick they use to fit more items? The soldiers roll their clothes. This will save you an incredible amount of room! Don’t be afraid to roll tightly, your favorite jeans will still make your butt look amazing…don’t worry. For the delicate clothes, just lay them on top of the rolled ones and you’re good to go.

 

  • If you are going to a warm climate for your trip, don’t hesitate to bring just one pair of closed toe shoes and the rest flip-flops. Shoes are one of the biggest space hogs. Packing all flip-flops will delete the need to pack socks!

 travel size

 

  • When packing medications, re-package them into smaller travel-size  containers or small zip-lock bags. Investing in travel-sized containers will save you money in the future by not having to pay the extra $25-$50 on checking your bag. These are available at any drug store. 
  •  

    • Save time by packing all your electronics last, so when you have to take them out in security, you won’t lose precious time digging through already packed items to find them.

    Travel safely and enjoy!
