The Number One Tip for Packing Perfectly for Your Next Trip

One of the questions I am asked most often is if I have any packing tips. The best tip is this: organization. It’s all about how you organize everything you need to pack for your next trip. Here are some of the favorite things I use to organize all of my stuff in a suitcase when I travel. 

Packing Cubes

They keep everything organized and allow for maximum capacity in a suitcase. Sometimes they are sold in quantities of three, however, I believe that you need a minimum of 6  I have been using the mesh bags for quite some time and plan to try vacuum bags in the near future.  They compress your clothes and make even more space.  

You can buy them on Amazon

Electronic Organizers

I travel with so many electronics that everything can become a big tangled mess.  I like to use an organizer especially made with individual compartments for each piece I need.

Hanging Bags

Space is always so limited when I arrive at my destination that I like to maximize it with a few hanging items. This is especially useful if you have multiple people sharing a room because the countertops are usually quite small in hotel rooms and on cruise ships.  I love a hanging cosmetic bag when I travel.  I also suggest a clear plastic hanging shoe organizer.  You can place the items both people need in each – like toiletries, hairbrushes, and medications so everything is easily seen.
