Tips / Destination

Overpacking is a common concern when getting ready for a trip. Avoid bringing unnecessary items and filling your suitcase to the brim by following our simple space-saving suggestions.


Don’t Rush

Pack early so you don’t rush and make poor last-minute decisions. Make a list of everything you need. Take your time putting items in your luggage, removing anything you think is unnecessary. Check the weather of the destination you’re visiting. If the forecast calls for warm and sunny weather, leave the rain jacket and bulky umbrella at home.


Choose the Right Suitcase

Don’t use your largest suitcase if you’re only going on a long weekend getaway.


Consider Heavy Items

Whether you’re going to a cool or warm weather destination, aim to wear your heaviest items on the plane. Place the rest of the heavy items in the bottom of your suitcase. This will help with overall weight distribution.


Less is More

Plan out a capsule wardrobe of a few versatile items you can re-wear throughout your trip. Opt for light layers and options in a few complementary colors and prints.


Nest Ttems

When possible, pack smaller items inside larger ones. Shoes make a perfect vessel for packing socks, medication, toiletries and other small items.
