Minus the bad uniforms
Packing for a holiday can seriously test your sanity. Every item in your wardrobe suddenly feels like a necessity and by the time you’re finished putting together your essentials you suddenly have four suitcases plus hand luggage for a weekend away. Packing smarter can maximize your wardrobe choices without blowing the budget on excess baggage fees at the airport.
Learn from the world’s most experienced travellers – flight attendants – on how to pack the perfect suitcase with these three tips...
1. Bulky items first
A lot of people make the mistake of packing their suitcase as they go, instead of planning it out once you have gathered the selected items. All of your bulky, heavier items like shoes should go at the bottom of the bag, closest to the wheels. This makes your suitcase easier to wheel in transit but also prevents the heavier items from squashing your casual dresses and tees.
2. Get rolling
Never fold your clothing! It takes up double the room and often results in the need to iron every single piece. Rolling all dresses, t-shirts and pants helps prevent wrinkling and maximizes space in your suitcase. It also means they can fit in between bulkier items like coats and shoes to fill any empty space.
3. Keep essential items accessible
We all know the pain of rocking up to your red eye flight and having to dig to the bottom of your bag for a Panadol. Keep all of your essential items at the top layer of your pack so they can be used easily before and after your commute.
