Travel can be a life-changing experience… and a huge hassle as well. For most, the problem starts before they even leave the house, and the first point of anxiety is – packing. A lot of people underrate the power of packing hacks, but learning the art of packing will not only allow you to maximise and utilise the space available, but could also save you time and money.
Whether you’re going on vacation or moving away from chaotic city life for a few days, remember that every last inch of the backpack matters, and you don’t want to ruin anything, be it your clothes or electronics. So, here are our top 10 pin-worthy packing hacks to help you travel like a pro:
Don’t Fold, Just Roll
Rolling clothes is a faster process and maximises space in the suitcase. Hold back the classic layer cake fold for delicate clothes; you can fearlessly apply this trick to wrinkle-free fabrics and denims of course.
Stack your innerwear
Save that space while helping your underwear retain shape by stacking them on top of each other. Extra hack? You can also keep your valuables inside the cups of your bra.
Shower Cap, the Shoe Saviours
Unless your shoes are new, keep them safe in shower caps or shoe bags. This would avoid mucking things up.
Two Tees for Each Bottom
There is always a possibility of re-wearing a pair of jeans or trousers. So avoid over packing, and stick to the simple rule of keeping two T-shirts for tops for every bottom that you’re carrying.
Pack Your Clothes Inside Out
Pack your light coloured clothes inside out to avoid wrinkles, and to prevent staining as well. This is how you could save the charm of your whites and pastels and is a life saviour if implemented intelligently.
Keep Heaviest Items Close to the Wheel
Here you need to understand the physics of how items move when the wheels roll. Make it a thumb rule to place the heavy items closest to the wheel so the weight is distributed evenly. This will make it easy for you to roll your luggage.
Transparent Bag for Toiletries
Keep your toiletries and grooming items in a see-through pouch. It will not only keep the items confined in case they leak, but you’d also be able to see everything in one place without digging through every pouch or every pocket of the suitcase.
Keep Wires in a Sunglasses Case
Avoid messy tangling with your various wires like a mobile charger, laptop charger or data cable. Just roll them up tightly and put them safely away into your sunglass case. It will restrict their movement; you can also do this with your jewellery.
Put Breakables in Socks
When it comes to fragile items like your perfume bottle, shaving gel, or a bottle of medicine, take extra precautions. Slip all breakable items into a sock to prevent them from being scratched or catching on to anything.
Benefit From Empty Spaces
Every nook and gap counts! Hunt for the dead and underutilised space, underestimated till now, like the insides of a shoe, to keep your headphones, charger, or change purses. You can keep other small essentials in it.
Now, as your bags are packed it’s time to head to the mountains, beaches or dessert. Explore the website and look for your kind of destination at V Resorts.
