Packing Tips

We have all packed for something, whether we were moving, visiting relatives, business trips, or traveling for the fun of it, however, there are a few pro-tips that you may not know. Nobody likes having several heavy bags that end up costing extra money on flights and are a pain to get from place to place. We have a few pointers to cut back on space and to help you travel lighter!

  • Roll your clothing- Most of us fold our clothes or toss items haphazardly into our bags, but when you roll your clothing, you can squeeze them next to each other easier to save space.
  • Leave some space in your suitcase- By doing this, you leave room for those souvenirs that you find along your travels without needing to cram them anywhere they fit and risk breakables getting damaged in transit.
