One of my least favorite things about traveling is packing. I worry my suitcase is going to exceed the approved weight limit. If I’m doing carry on, I worry not everything will fit inside my smaller suitcase. I actually have FOMOS, fear of missing outfits and shoes. A girl must look good and be comfortable no matter where her journey leads her. Thankfully, my fear has subsided now that I know how to pack like a pro.
How do I accomplish this feat of genius? With my new TravelWise Packing Cube System – 5 Piece Weekender Set (available in 5 colors). Made from extra durable, lightweight nylon fabric, TravelWise packing cubes making packing for a short trip or long journey so much easier. Each set comes with five cubes, including one small, two medium, and two large. You can use all five cubes or pick and choose the ones best suited for your trip or suitcase.
I used my teal cubes on a recent weeklong trip to Houston. Since I knew I would be checking my bag and my plans would fluctuate throughout my stay, I decided all five cubes were needed. One of my favorite aspects of the TravelWise Packing Cube System is they force me to pack more efficiently and with more organization.
Because I can compartmentalize my clothes, workout gear, underwear, PJs, etc., I can plan my outfits for each day and make sure I don’t forget anything. Not only do my TravelWise Packing Cube System ensure everything I pack stays neatly folded during transit, but they also help me more effectively utilize the space in my suitcase. And because each features a handle, sturdy zippers, and an open mesh design, I always know what’s in each cube and can easily take them in and out of my bag.
As you can see by the pictures above and below, I used the smallest cube to hold my brushes and styling tools. It fit neatly in the bottom of my suitcase, allowing me to safely stack my toiletry bag on top, with room left over for shoes. Next, I packed one of the medium sized cubes with my PJs, socks, and workout gear and the other I filled with my underwear, bras and tank tops. Both cubes fit perfectly in the top zipper compartment of my suitcase.
This freed up the entire right side of my suitcase for the two larger cubes. I filled one with my pants, jeans, and a water bottle, and the other with my tops and dresses. Because they are stackable, I was able to neatly tuck one cube at the very bottom of the suitcase, followed by a layer of shoes. I covered the bottom cube and shoes with the remaining cube. Yes, it’s a lot of shoes. I can live with being able to bring fewer clothes, but I need a variety of shoe choices. I know, I have a problem.
With my suitcase all packed, I was ready for my trip. It didn’t break the weight restrictions and it arrived, minus my one of my frequent flyer nametags, just as I had packed it. Having my packing cubes made it so much easier to stay organized during my stay as well. Each night I would hang up the outfit I wanted to wear the next day and then replace the cubes back in my suitcase. Because I maintain this system, I don’t have to repack my suitcase at the end of my trip.
Although I still don’t like to pack or unpack for that matter, my TravelWise Packing Cube System has made the process less tedious and a lot more efficient. Now if we could just find a way to make flying as fun as it used to be…
