How to Pack Everything You Need Into One Carry-on Baggage
With the increased value of luggage, the risk of loss or damage to luggage, and the dubious fact that checking a bag means it will be in contact with many surfaces ( embryonic surfaces ) , it is wise to stick with carry-on luggage .
But how do you make it work? Maybe you pack too much that always think you need to travel with checked baggage. Maybe you’ve always wanted to know how these tourists can get their things in one carry-on for a month. It is an art, but it is possible.
Decide what to pack
First, make a checklist for yourself. The key to packaging is getting rid of the idea that you need an entire wardrobe in the first place. There are certain items that – if they are lost, damaged, or eaten by a bear – you can always replace. Lingerie, socks, and toiletries don’t have to fill up your bag – just bring enough items with you during your stay. In some cases, you can pack items that can be worn many times, such as leggings, a plain T-shirt, khaki pants, and a button-down shirt. Then put them on or down using the accessories as needed.
For bulky items like coats or boots, wear them rather than pack them. The coat can always be replaced with a pillow or blanket in flight.
Roll up your clothes
I confess I have always been a folder with clothes. I didn’t know that riding them was a concept at all, but here we are learning together. Riding on wheels is a great alternative: they keep items compact, letting you see at a glance what you’ve packed, saving you the hassle of looking wildly in your bags for a particular item. It also speeds up the repackaging process significantly.
Use packing cubes
The main function of packing cubes is to separate and organize your belongings by compressing your belongings and making better use of space in your bag. Visually, they look like square / rectangular fabric versions of tupperware, but about the size of clothes.
Packing cubes make it easier to find things, are great for organizing, keep items tightly packed (as they won’t be able to move around), and, again, make repackaging more efficient.
Put your toiletries in the middle
You should always put your toiletries in your carry-on baggage. This will reduce the risk of spills or leaks. Also, follow TSA’s standard sizing guidelines and always put your toiletries in a clear plastic bag.
Stick to one color palette
To avoid overwhelming yourself, make sure all of your clothes match. The easiest way to do this is to stick to one color palette. This saves you the hassle of putting everything in your closet in your carry-on luggage. Using a darker color is a great way to hide stains and sweat marks if you don’t plan on using the laundry while you travel.
The most important thing to remember is to keep it simple and design the system. Travel involves many moving parts. Link your packaging technique to science, and that’s one problem you can cross off your list.
