11 new packing hacks Tips for Holiday Travel
Recommended : Bali Travel Guide
If you are someone who travels a lot you should definitely repack this has helped me tremendously whenever I have a last-minute flight or if I just don’t have time to pack everything.
I need this already in here as you can see with the toiletry bag I put everything that I usually use at home into travel size containers and then I just leave them in my toiletry bag I also have my makeup bag here of duplicates or similar things that I use at home so now when I have a trip all I have to do is worry about the clothing and other necessities that I currently am using at the moment.
2. Compreesion sock
If you will be traveling on long flights and car rides this holiday season get yourself some compression stockings to help improve with blood flow and to prevent you from swelling you can get certain compression stockings for your arm your legs your thighs and you can hide these under your clothes.
3. Layer Up
aside from keeping you cozy on your plane ride this tip will help you save so much space in your luggage by layering up and wearing all your heavy clothing items like your coat to layer start with the tank top followed by a t-shirt then you can wrap a sweatshirt or wear a button up top over your t-shirts lastly you want to wear your heaviest clothing item like your jacket or your coat.
4. Natural Freshener
These lavender dryer bags are amazing and they’re not made of synthetic they’re natural they can decompose into the environment and they smell amazing so I like to put them into my clothing bag and also into my luggage you could take them out leave them in the hotel drawer and they will smell amazing like lavender.
5. How to Pack Socks
When you’re traveling and packing socks I highly recommend for you to tuck them in I like to tuck in about 3 pairs altogether and it saves me space because you could lay them flat in your luggage.
6. Perfume Storage
Aside from saving space you can use this as a cushion around your perfume bottle make sure your perfume bottle is compliant with the TSA rule before packing this as you can see I just tucked the perfume bottle inside the sock so that way the sock can act as a cushion around it and then I would take the socks and tuck them inside one of my pair of shoes that I will be packing along with me this will save your perfume bottle from breaking and if it does break then at least your feet will smell amazing.
7. Missing Stock Trick
Ok you know that one sock you usually have in the laundry well here is a good way to repurpose that save that sock and make sure that it’s not a synthetic material make sure that it’s caught in if you are packing a curling iron with you and you know after using it it’s hot but you need to pack your stuff and leave you can place that curling iron in your sock if the sock is synthetic it can melt the sock so make sure that it’s a natural material then that you can pack this into your luggage.
8. Fordable Warmth
There is no such thing as too many cooks or jackets for me I can always use the extra layer and warmth a super helpful tip that I love to use is to carry around a foldable jacket or coat with me you can find something like this at REI.
I got mine at Uniqlo and it’s so convenient because whenever it’s extra chilly I can layer this under my coat or I can just carry this with me in my carry-on or even in my handbag.
9. Tote Bag
I always make sure to bring a tote bag with me and even if I don’t need to use it I would just hold this and put it in the front compartment of my carry-on bag just in case the airline tells me that they’re out of space and they need to check in my carry-on bag I can take my tote bag out and then put everything that I really do need in my tote bag.
There are so many helpful uses for a tote bag you can use this to store your dirty laundry in or you can take this out to run errands and go shopping.
10. Money Storage
You never know what will happen especially when you’re away from home if there’s no safe around and you don’t want to carry all your money with you you can store your money and break them up into different compartments one way I like to store my extra cash and is place it into a plastic bag and tuck that into my makeup wipes or another white bag if you have a diaper white bag put that in there as long as you can blend it in with other items.
11. Packing Cubes
This is something that I love and have mentioned to in my other packing articles and that is packing cubes they store all my clothing inside everything stays organized and my clothing stays clean.
