The do's and don'ts of packing


Whether you travel for business or pleasure, there is one task that most travelers dread - packing. There is so much to consider when packing for a trip: what items you need, how they will fit into your suitcase, and if your suitcase is too heavy to carry.

Packing for a trip can be a stressful event, but it doesn't have to be. Packing the right items, the right way, can make your trip a breeze. Here is our list of six do's and don'ts for packing, so you can have a worry-free packing experience and a relaxing trip.

1. Do Create a Packing List

Create a list of all the items you need for your trip. Be sure to keep the list handy when you pack, so you do not pack unnecessary items and overburden your suitcase.

2. Do Check the Weather Report and Pack Accordingly

Be sure to check the weather report for the area you're traveling to. Although the weather may typically be warm and sunny at your destination, you should pack a few clothes for cold or rainy weather. It is always best to be prepared for unfavorable weather wherever you go.

3. Do Pack Light

Packing light will keep your suitcase at a comfortable weight for lifting and maneuvering. And if you forget to pack something at the last minute, you'll know that you still have plenty of room in your suitcase. The best part of packing light is that you won't have to worry about paying extra baggage fees at the airport because your suitcase exceeds the weight limit.

4. Do Save Space in Your Suitcase

Travel experts have a great trick for conserving space in your suitcase: rolling your clothes. Folding your clothes takes up too much room, but tightly rolling your clothes takes up very little space and allows you to fit more items into your suitcase. By rolling your clothes, you will also have plenty of room for souvenirs.

5. Don't Pack at The Last Minute

It is hard not to procrastinate when it comes to packing for your trip. But you shouldn't wait until the last minute to pack your suitcase since it increases the likelihood that you will forget to pack important items. Give yourself a few days or weeks before your departure date to pack.

6. Don't Worry

No matter how well-prepared for your trip you think you are, sometimes you forget to pack an item. And that's okay. Whether it be an umbrella or toothpaste, remember that you can always buy the item when you arrive at your destination. Keep this in mind as you pack your suitcase, so you don't stress about remembering to pack every useful item.
