A traveller lives out of his suitcase and is happy to do so. Most people find the task of packing for a trip oddly tedious. It can be a very stressful affair if one keeps procrastinating the aspect of packing. A lot of the fuss about packing can be easily solved by making a list of everything you might need on your journey.

Here are some pro tips to make your suitcase light and tidy. A traveller’s experience can be measured by how efficiently they pack their bags.

The Right Suitcase:

The first thing you will need is a durable, spacious and compact suitcase. Choosing the right suitcase already extinguishes half the stress. A quality suitcase also helps you move about with ease. Compact suitcases are a safe bet because they are designed to have more storage spaces.

Check List:

A check-list ensures that you have everything you need and everything is accounted for. A simple check before you closes the suitcase can make all the difference during the journey and saves a lot of time. A review of the list can be helpful for any last minute additions.

Must Haves:

The essentials (shampoo, soap, shaving kit and toothbrushes) can be classified into categories based on the frequency of requirement. They can be stored in zip-locks or pinches. All your essentials can be stored according to your need and reach. A prepared toiletry bag can save a lot of time. Shoes can be tricky to store hence one should get a durable pair of shoes which they can wear most of the time. An extra pair of clean socks are a must and they can be washed easily.

Lighter The Better:

One of the best travelling tips is to always pack light. One of the easiest ways to save storage space in your suitcase is to roll your clothes instead of folding them. This actually saves a lot of space. Your clothes start to stink when they are packed in a tight area so it’s a good idea to place a dryer sheet in between the clothes so that they don’t emit any body odor.

Check With Your Weather Forecaster:

The weather can be unpredictable and one should pack accordingly, be it beaches or mountains. The smart thing to do is pack according to the weather conditions of your travel destination. A quick weather check can do no harm. Swimwear, sweaters and raincoats occupy a lot of space so one should never carry any unnecessary garments.

Packing in a hurry can be tough but a slight amount of patience and planning can make the whole process a lot more efficient. Bon, voyage!
