Packing for a trip can be extremely exciting but it can also be daunting. Trying to remember everything that you need on your trip while also trying not to get carried away with overpacking can result in a stressful experience for many. Fortunately, we have a number of handy tips that can streamline the process and ensure that you have everything you need for your holiday.
Before you start packing anything and losing track of what you have and haven’t included, you need to sit down and make a list. Think of everything you could possibly need and write them down, ranking them from most important to least. That way you can start from the top, packing the essentials, and only include the less-essential items if you have enough room in your bag.
Now that it’s time to start packing, take a look at your bag and determine how many components it has. From there, you can allocate specific items to each component. For example, you may want to allocate a component for all of your toiletries so that you know exactly where to find all of them when you need them instead of digging through your entire bag.
Once you have a plan of action, you can officially start packing. For clothes, you can try rolling them so that they take up less space. Be creative with how you pack and fill every gap with an item. Use shoes to put other items in, take advantage of pockets, and utilise every empty space before moving onto a new layer. Make sure to tick items off the list as you go, and bring the list with you so that you can tick them off again when you pack to leave!
With these tips, you’re sure to have a successful packing experience and a stress-free vacation.
