Travel Essentials Volume III: Packing Cubes
For a messy person like me, it is a miracle that I am so organized whenever I travel. I simply don’t like to see my undies mixed with my socks or toiletries. Organizing makes me feel like a mature person. 😀 For me, the most organized way to pack is to use packing cubes or travel organizers. It allows me to pack more while also taking up less space in my luggage or backpack.
I’ve heard a lot of people tell me, especially backpackers, that using packing cubes is just a waste of space and money. I’m a backpacker myself and using packing cubes has been totally worth my money. Separating your stuff layer by layer using a packing cube allows easier access inside your backpack. The only secret to save space is to carefully organize your clothes and other items inside.
Packing cubes are also versatile travel accessories because you can basically use it for anything such as clothing, shoes, gadgets, toiletries, and basically anything else you want to store. They come in different sizes and designs. They are small and lightweight, which can help compress your stuff.
What I love most with packing cubes is since they are ergonomically designed to compress, they fit perfectly into most carry-on suitcases, backpacks, and even tote bags.
Others may consider it a waste of money, but for me it is a great investment. Not only does it help travelers like me maximize space and organize my items, it is also an important accessory to avoid lost or damaged items.
