Traveling light isn’t an easy task and things tend to get even more difficult once winter arrives. If you’re struggling to find enough room for all your bulky and heavy clothes in your tiny suitcase, these five tips and tricks will help you maximize your luggage space.
No matter what season it is, certain packing strategies can help you make the best of your carry-on, from rolling your clothes to using packing cubes.
Planning your outfits may seem silly, but it’s a great way to maximize space in your suitcase. If you know exactly what you’re going to wear each day, you won’t end up packing things that you don’t need.
Wearing Heavy Clothes
Packing your heaviest clothes in your suitcase is best avoided, so consider wearing them on a plane and washing them once you reach your destination so you can re-wear them.
Wear Your Clothes Again
Speaking of re-wearing your clothes, you should definitely do it when traveling light. Most of your clothes won’t get dirty in a single day, and washing them is always an option.
No Double Packing
If you tend to pack two jackets, pairs of boots, or some other heavy winter items, it’s time to stop. One pair will do just fine, just make sure it goes well with all of your outfits.
