After determining your OOTDs, it’s time to pack them! Place the first outfit that you want to wear on top, followed by the next ones. Organize and put them in order. This way, you don’t have to take out some of the clothes to reach the one at the bottom and then put them back inside. We’re talking about saving time and energy.

4. Organize your items.

Use packing cubes or re-sealable bags to keep similar items together. For instance, place your skincare and makeup in their own case. For toiletries, put them inside a waterproof bag. If you were to bring accessories, keep them in a mini bag so that they don’t go missing everywhere. And don’t forget your chargers. If there are many wires and cords, put them inside a bag together to avoid them tangling with other items.

5. Bring your own laundry bag.

While you’re on a vacation, it is important to have your own laundry bag. Don’t let your dirty clothes stranded on the floor or put them in your bag together with other clean clothes. Euw, we don’t want that! Keep them in the laundry bag until you go to the dobby later. Let’s be hygienic, shall we?

6. Place heavy items at the base.

When you pack your items, place the heaviest one at the base of your bag. If you bring luggage, put the heavy items near the wheels. This helps to balance your bag and keep it from falling when it is in standing position.

7. Bring an extra bag for souvenirs.

Last but not least, if you plan to buy many souvenirs on your holiday, care to bring an extra bag in case if you can’t fit them inside your luggage. Bring a foldable pack is enough. You can fold it in and take it out for later use. Other than providing extra space, it can protect your souvenirs from broken or damaged.
