These little squares have been HUGE helpers for my family lately. You can assign each cube to a category, i.e. socks & undergarments, pajamas & loungewear, swimsuits & coverups, shorts, tops, toiletries, etc. I can’t begin to explain how helpful this is when you arrive at your destination and begin to unpack. The kids (and let’s be honest, hubby too!) don’t have to ask you where everything is in their suitcase. Every item is organized in a sensible way and it prevents clothing flying around the room looking like a tornado hit it while the kids search for their favorite swimsuit. Go ahead with that big sigh of relief – you’ll actually be able to enjoy day one of your trip!
Roll vs. Fold Packing Techniques
I feel like the roll vs. fold debate has been going on forever amongst travelers. Well, I’m here to tell you that rolling wins! Why? Despite taking up less space and being able to fit more in each cube or suitcase, rolling your clothes allows you to see everything you’ve packed from the get-go. No more undoing all of your pretty folded piles while searching underneath layers and layers of shirts trying to find a specific one. Rolling your clothes and stacking them next to each other gives you more visibility to what you’ve actually packed. We’ve all been guilty of getting home from a trip, unpacking, and realizing you didn’t wear a few outfits because you forgot about or couldn’t find certain items. All that suitcase stuffing and paying for an overweight bag was for nothing! Using the rolling technique while packing a suitcase puts an end to this and allows you to get more out of the items you spent so long shopping for.
