I haven’t added any fancy photos as I would like to make it as realistic and practical as possible
1. Selection of clothes
Always try to pack light clothes. Materials like polyester, viscose etc are easier to pack, while cotton dresses tend to crunch and consumes space. Jeans are inevitable pieces of clothes these days. But it is not impossible to find a substitute for denims these days. Try to pack less denims and more of stretchable fabrics. Packing one or two denims pieces won’t hurt though.
Shoes, belts, caps and other accessories are also unavoidable for the fashionable youth. Belts and caps won’t take much space but shoes does. If you are travelling on air you have no other option but carry them along the luggage. In such cases, wear your boots or heavy shoes and pack the lighter ones like slippons, loafers etc. If you are travelling by car, you need not keep it inside the suitcase. You can simply keep it in the boot of your car.
3. Folding the clothes
Key to effective packing is folding. Roll your dress, bottom up and seal the top by folding it back like shown in the picture. This way you can pack more clothes and save space.
Pack that which is needed only. Ask yourself if it’s necessary to pack. Remember that you are going to enjoy your days not to spend it carrying heavy loads packing and unpacking them.
4. Road trips and pitstops
For road trips you need to stop at different places. It is practical to pack your next day’s dress in small covers so that once you stop you just need to keep that inside a small back pack. This way you can avoid shifting your heavy suitcase everyday.
5. Sealing the luggage
This is an important step and the most neglected one. If you seal your luggage with a long towel, it will remain in tact and wouldn’t even budge despite any amount of mishandling. This applies mostly when you have kids along as their items tend to spill over.
