I can safely say that all the little trips in the back of others people cars and on budget airlines has forced me to become an expert bag packer and to make the most of my tiny suitcase. Here are my secrets.
Tip 1: By faaaar the most important tip – Roll dont fold. You won’t believe how much more you will be able to fit in a case when your clothes are rolled.
Tip 2: Plan !!! Look up the weather and roughly plan an outfit for every day of your trip – This will help you to avoid packing things you dont need.
Tip 3: Fill any shoes you are putting in your case.
Tip 4: Wear the bulkiest items you are bringing.
Tip 5: Get ‘mini’ toiletries.
Tip 6: Pack the essentials in your carry on backpack. I often carry a change of clothes in my backpack incase (god forbid) my suitcase goes missing.
Tip 7: Carry a reusable bag for dirty laundry so don’t have to sort through them when your home
