Packing tips

Packing a suitcase can be nerve wrecking sometimes. Specially if you are the type of traveler who takes almost everything every time you travel.

Here are some tips we would like to share:

-Place shirts on the bottom, then dresses (if applicable), then pants.
-Stack tops, unfolded, by placing wrinkle-prone tops toward the bottom of a pile and less easily wrinkled ones toward the top.
-Fold the sleeves in toward the shirts’ torsos.
-Fold the shirts in half from the bottom. You now have a rectangular bundle of shirts; place it in your suitcase.
-Drape long dresses in the suitcase so that the ends hang over the sides.
-Place pants and skirts on a flat surface; fold each in half lengthwise.
-Stack pants and skirts on top of one another, with easily wrinkled ones on the bottom and sturdier ones, such as jeans, on top.
-Place your stack of pants and skirts on top of the dresses, then fold the ends of the dresses over the pants and skirts.
-Stuff socks in shoes. Pack underwear in laundry bags or side pockets to save space.
-Arrange each pair of shoes so that the heel of one aligns with the toe of the other.
-Protect clothes from leaks by placing toiletries in a plastic bag.

Remember : non-liquid toiletries, spare shoes, prescription medicines, an extra pair of eye glasses, contact lenses or sunglasses, and your camera you’ll carry with you on the plane in your carry-on bag.

Also, remember to take enough clothing in your carry-on to get you through at least a day. Sometimes your luggage makes it to a different destination than you do.
