Are you on a budget and don’t know where to start cutting the expenses? What about checked in baggage? Do you actually need a big suitcase, that will be a nuisance whenever you change your location? What about traveling as light as it gets? Let us help you with these 8 packing tips.
If you are limited to a hand baggage and will travel by plane, measure the bag while it’s full and compare it to airline baggage allowance and avoid additional fees. Yes, the wheels and the handles also count.
If you are traveling for a shorter time, don’t take full size packages. You can save some space event with as trivial things as cotton pads. For a weekend trip, you do not need a full package of cotton pads.
Wrinkled clothes can be partially avoided by, instead of folding, rolling the clothes around themselves or other items. Electronic devices that need protection can be used for the core of the clothing roll.
You can kill two birds with one stone, if you fill your shoes and bras with socks and panties. That way the shoes and bras retain their shape, while you fill in the empty nooks.
If you are not bothered by a washed-out look, take some of the worn-out clothing with you. Rock the style and squeeze the last breath of life out of them on your vacation. At the end of your traveling throw them away and use the space for a must-have sari you saw at the market or a true authentic cigar you need to share with your friends.
You can save a bit of weight with wearing the heaviest pieces of clothing, especially when it comes to shoes and jackets. If you are a book worm, we recommend you download electronic books and enjoy in the lightness of traveling.
Fighting a cold, air-conditioned buses? Take a scarf. Need to cover the shoulders to enter the sacred monument? Use a scarf. Shivering in a flight over the Atlantic? Cover yourself with a scarf.
