How to save space in your luggage
Follow these 4 simple steps to save space in your bag, and you'll be sure to travel light, comfortable and with an organized suitcase.
Create outfits and roll them up
Think about how many days of the week you will be traveling, and put together outfits that you can reuse. Taking basic travel clothes will be your best option if you want to reduce space, because it will be easier to match. Once you have chosen what you will take with you, roll up your clothes, with your underwear inside, do not fold them as it is traditionally done, it is an excellent way to make space in your bag.
Personal hygiene items
Invest a little in special containers of 100 ml, forget about traveling with large bottles that will only take up space in your bag, plus you can reuse them on your next trips. Don't forget to include a mini first aid kit. Headache, stomach and motion sickness pills are basic for every trip.
Use your footwear for storage
Every space matters, and the space in your shoes can be put to good use. Store your socks, headphones, cell phone or computer cables, and even your jewelry in small bags.
How to make your bag lighter?
Another great way to save space in your bag is to choose the perfect luggage. Look for a light suitcase, and with different spaces where you can store more things, lean on your hand luggage, carrying one or two extra blouses in your carry-on bag will lighten your bag. Don't forget to make sure you wear your heaviest clothes, such as jeans, jackets or boots. This way, you will be sure to reduce the weight of your bags.
