Here Is A List Of 5 Things To Keep In Mind Before Packing Your Carry On.
1. Reuse Your Clothes
The ultimate key to packing light is to pack less. If you are on a long holiday, be wise in making your outfit choices. Carry a pair of denims to go with a bunch of tops. Try styling the same set of clothes in different ways by mix-matching the garments. If it is not a budget trip, you can even get your clothes laundry washed to avoid bulky packing.
2. Pack In Ziplocks
Instead of using a travel pouches or vanity for packing all your accessories and travel essentials, you can use ziplock pouches to save the extra space in your bag. The travel pouches usually take up a spot in your travel bag which can be avoided with the ziplock pouches.
3. Roll Your Clothes
We have always been folding the clothes in exact squares. But no one told us there was any other way to do it. Instead of folding the clothes, try rolling them as tight as possible. By rolling the clothes you tend to keep more clothes in lesser space. Just be careful while rolling ironed clothes.
4. Go Digital
If you are one of the book nerds(just like us), you would want to travel with at least a book or two, for those boring long flights. But we recommend you to go digital with them. Instead of a physical book, carry multiple e-books on your portable device. Don't you agree you will save quite a lot of space in your bag?
5. Wear Comfortable Footwear
As you would be traveling with only a carry-on bag, it is advisable to wear the most comfortable pair of footwear you possess so that you don't need to pack an additional pair in your bag. You can carry a lightweight pair of flip flops in your carry-on which will neither take up too space nor make it heavy.
