Here’s a great packing tip–avoid the big mess of clothes in your suitcase by using PACKING CUBES. Packing cubes are an easy way to organize and handle your packed items. With packing cubes, you can pack more items in less space (think smaller suitcase), and remove items without completely unpacking and messing up the entire suitcase.
Yes, there are many packing cubes to choose from but I like this 6-piece set from Amazon. These cubes are well made, have sturdy zippers, are made of durable nylon, and the tops of the cubes have mesh sections so you can easily identify the items inside. The set includes 3 sizes of cubes–2 each of small, medium and large–so you can pack according to the size of your clothing items and the size of your suitcase/bag.
An important feature that I like with this set is that the cubes unzip around three sides to open completely, so packing is super easy. Just fold your items (or roll them) to fill the packing cubes. Zip them closed and pack your cubes in your suitcase.
I’ve included a few photos from my last trip. The cube that is open has 9 shirts, 2 pants, and 1 pair of shorts. It zipped without any problem. This cube is a medium. You can see how a large cube and a medium cube fit in my suitcase (my 21″ carry-on suitcase).
These packing cubes are a good value at only $10.95 with free Amazon Prime shipping on orders over $25. Here’s the Amazon link for ordering this great set of packing cubes.
