Prepare your suitcases carefully before departure

A very important rule for effectively preparing your travel suitcase is not to put clothes in a crazy and messy way. Therefore, the previous step is to first make a display of everything you are going to take. Take your list and spread it out on a bed or table. In this way you will physically visualize all that will be your baggage.

Once done, this will help you organize it; it is very useful to make sets with the clothes to know what you can use one or more days; and to get an idea of the place it will occupy in the suitcases. This will likely prompt you for a sorting exercise if you realize you don’t need as much stuff and you may have planned for excess baggage. Then you can collapse it before it gets packed and it will save you having to go back to get things out that were already placed.

If you have to decide on a clothing dilemma, it is strongly advised to favor comfort over aesthetics, unless a travel commitment prevents you from doing so.

– Store and place your clothes correctly in your suitcases

The time has come to pack your suitcase and here it is very important to follow a series of tips to make the most of the space in an optimal way.

Wrap the shoes in plastic and put them on the bottom, because this way they will not wrinkle the clothes with their weight, and they will also serve as a base for your luggage. For similar reasons, toiletry bags should be placed in this inner part.

Place the less delicate clothes and those that wrinkle less at the bottom of the suitcase, leaving the upper part for the more delicate ones.

A good trick to avoid wrinkles is to roll the clothes in the form of a tube, applicable to those who accept it, of course. Closing buttons and zippers also help prevent wrinkles.

Make sure everything fits together. Use the sides or remaining spaces to store smaller items of clothing, such as underwear bags, socks, hats or belts. You can also take advantage of empty spaces for small items, such as cell phone chargers.

If you do not have to deal with restrictions such as liquids on the plane, you can also place bottles which will be protected by the surrounding clothing.

The organization is basic. If you are going to take a trip whose itinerary has different stops and hotels, in order not to unpack your luggage during the whole stay, it is important to place your clothes in a compartmentalized way so that you know where each type of clothing is. For example, if you are looking for a shirt, let them be together and you can find it easily.

It can be of great interest for you not to fill your suitcases completely, in anticipation of possible purchases that you could make during your trip. Foresight always pays off.
