29 Jun Travel Tips: How to pack light
Whether packing for business or a vacation, it is a skill to learn how to pack light. Here are a few tips that can help you pack light for your next trip:
Pack the essentials only
Only pack what you need. One of the biggest packing fails is overpacking for worst case scenarios. If you end up needing something, buy one when you get there. Don’t bring all your toiletries, limit them to only what you need. Toiletries can weigh a lot and take up space in your luggage. Use travel-sized toiletries to decrease weight in your bag.
Choose clothing appropriately
When packing lightly, it’s important to choose clothes that mix and match. When packing light, if you will be traveling for a long time, laundry is necessary. Pack according to the climate of your destination and make sure all the clothes can easily be washed (not dry clean only). Shoes can add a lot of weight to your luggage, pack functional footwear for where your destination is and what you will be doing when you are there.
Roll, don’t fold
Rolling your clothes will save space in your suitcase and can help to decrease the amount of wrinkles in your clothes if done correctly.
