Travel 101: Organizing your Travel Bag

Nothing takes the fun out of vacation anticipation than—you guessed it—packing. It’s somehow the source of unnecessary stress we put ourselves under before a getaway, which seems completely fixable even if you’re not the most anal.

Channel your inner Marie Kondo and start doing the following tips:

Choose Your Suitcase Wisely

Decide your type of traveler. Do you pack light? Heavy? Do you want to do backpacking? These questions will guide you in finding the suitable luggage you need for your trip; keeping in mind your locations and length of stay.

Make Lists

Never skip making lists! It’s fundamental to put everything down so you don’t end up with a lot of clutter and forgotten stuff.


The best way to maximize space in your baggage is to try and separate items categorically. This way, your things are organized and neat.


Believe the hype—rolling up your clothes really help in packing. Once you’ve got your compartments figured out, the last thing to do is try to ball up your things lovingly so you have enough room accordingly.

Packing doesn’t have to be a nightmare. Just follow the basics and you’re well on your way to being a globe-throttling superstar!
