How To Organize Your Luggage
If you find occasionally you don't have enough luggage space for all your travelling clothes then fret not. I'm here to help you.
First off, I think you're packing too much. Don't you think so?
You can hop on to HOW TO BE A LIGHT TRAVELLER and get tips from there.
After you've downsized the contents of your luggage, then let's organize it.
What I usually do is I pack pants on the bottom of the luggage first. For jeans I usually bring only a pair and I wear them on the first day so that I don't have to pack it in my luggage. For me, jeans are space consuming and heavy.
Shoe wise are the same. I pack 1 pair of shoes and 1 pair of old sandals and I wear the heaviest shoe on the first day of the trip. I bring old sandals because I can throw them away on the last day of the trip, thus making extra space for my souvenirs.
For clothes, I will fold them nicely like the first picture.
Then I will roll them up. Reason is because I want to save space in my luggage.
Don't bother to bring easily crumpled clothes. Do you think you will have enough time to iron your clothes during the trip? No way!
I usually bring one or two old tees and socks with me that I will wear during the trip and throw it away on the last day of the trip. That way I have enough space for my shopping stuff and souvenirs. Hahaha
I put all my toiletries in a bag. It is more organize and I can look for the stuff I want simply by looking in the toiletries bag. I bring my toiletries in small quantity...just enough to last for the trip. Don't bother to bring a whole bottle of perfume or lotion...what is the use?
I hope you find my tips on organizing luggage useful.
