28 May Travel Tip: Packing Cubes
Prior to this trip, I had never even heard of packing cubes, until I received them as a goodbye gift.
Now, they have changed my life.
What are Packing Cubes?
Packing cubes are a set of nylon zip storage bags, perfect for on-the-go travellers. They allow you to separate your clothing into different pouches, making it easy to find what you’re looking for and get an overall understanding of which clothes you have to mix and match with. Packing cubes are super thin and light weight material, which means that they take up no room and you can take out just ONE of your T-Shirts or pants from your bag separately without making a mess of the rest of your clothes. Genius!
Buy? Take a look at these cubes on sale at Amazon.
How to pack Packing Cubes?
I have three cubes – one for my tops, one for my pants and the other for my under garments. I always roll my clothes up and lay them side by side with up to 10 items fitting into one cube.
Are packing cubes really worth the money?
I was sceptical that packing cubes were just a waste of space and a gimmick, but now after travelling with them, I really appreciate them.
I was always the one disheveled with a messy suitcase, clothes falling out everywhere from the minute I unzipped my bag at each destination. Now I simply take out the designated cube and can clearly see all of the options of tops/bottoms I have available. It cuts down my decision time, as well as my packing time because it’s right there in front of me, so no more rummaging through.
