Packing for a trip can often be a daunting task. You want to ensure you have everything you need, but you also don’t want to end up with an overweight suitcase or a jumble of items you won’t use. At Lisell Travel, we understand the importance of a well-organized suitcase, and we’re here to help you pack like a pro. Whether you’re jet-setting to Europe, exploring the Caribbean, or venturing to other exciting destinations, these six packing tips will make your journey smoother and more enjoyable.

1. Limit the Shoes

Shoes are notorious space hogs in your luggage, so it’s crucial to be selective. Try to stick to no more than three pairs. Include boots for cooler climates or a comfortable sandal for sunny destinations. Next, add a versatile heel or flat that complements various outfits for evenings out. The final pair is your travel essential: a comfortable and supportive pair of walking shoes.

Pro tip: Avoid bringing brand-new shoes on your trip. Breaking in shoes before you travel will help you avoid blisters and discomfort while exploring your destination.

2. Packing Cubes – Worth the Hype

Packing cubes are a traveler’s best friend. These nifty accessories help you save space and stay organized. If you’re dealing with bulkier items, consider compression cubes to maximize your packing efficiency.

3. Skip Single-Use Clothing

To minimize the bulk in your bag, say goodbye to clothes that can only be worn once. Opt for versatile pieces that you’d be happy to wear multiple times during your trip. For separates, choose a color palette and mix and match your way to multiple outfits with just a few items. Accessories can further diversify your look.

While on the topic of clothing, prioritize items that travel well. If a beloved garment wrinkles beyond repair in your luggage, it’s best left at home.

4. Plan Ahead

Simplify the packing process by making a plan. Start by writing a checklist and laying out your outfits and travel toiletries. Frequent traveler? Keep a toiletry bag stocked and ready to go. Before each trip, review and replenish what’s needed.

5. Pack an Empty Bag

Fold down an empty duffle bag or tote and place it at the bottom of your suitcase. This extra bag serves as a space saver for your return trip, allowing you to accommodate souvenirs or new items you’ve acquired during your travels. It means less stress when packing for the journey home.

6. Wear It on Your Flight

For items that are heavy or awkwardly sized, the best solution is to wear them during your flight. Whether it’s a dinner jacket or bulky boots, wearing these items not only frees up space in your suitcase but also keeps them in excellent condition.
