Your Travel Guide On Packing A Suitcase

Nov 16, 2007
When it comes to packing for a trip, some people just don't know how to and they end up stuffing their suitcases with too many items that end up not being used on the actual trip itself. It is important that you learn to pack the essentials. With these travel packing tips, packing lightly will not be that hard.

The first step would be choosing the right luggage or suitcase to pack in your travel essentials. Good, quality luggage is an investment which could last you for more years to come. You would want the contents of your luggage to be protected right? If you want to ease your shoulders the burden of carrying a bag, then choose luggage with wheels for easy transport.

If you are in a hurry after you disembark from the plane, it is advised that you carry on your luggage. In this manner, you save time from waiting for your bags on the conveyor belt or you don't risk losing them (although this rarely happens). Carry on luggage though has dimension restrictions which vary from airline to airline. This means you have to pack less and if you have kids with you such will not be a good option. If you have to check in luggage, make sure that you label them accordingly and remove unnecessary tags in order that it won't get lost and it'll arrive to you safely.

The first and important packing tip to remember is to bring only what you need. Think about the weather and the activities that you will be engaged in. Pack clothes that you could mix and match and bring at least one dressy outfit. For shoes, bring an extra pair and wear a comfortable pair.

Aside from the clothes, don't forget to pack toiletries in travel size so that these items will not occupy that much luggage space. Place them inside sealed plastic bags to avoid any leakage that could ruin your clothes. As much as possible, put these in a separate compartment away from your clothes.

Forcing too many items in your suitcase can result to wrinkly clothes. As long as you pack only the necessary stuff, you'll have more than enough room for everything that you will be bringing plus you'll have some space saved for souvenirs or items that you may pick along your trip. Rolling shirts and pants can also save a lot of room.

Plan ahead and don't wait until the last minute to do your packing.
