- Lay large items at the bottom
Start by placing heavier items like your beach towel and toiletries at the bottom of your suitcase to balance weight at the spine.
- Roll, don’t fold, to save space
Rolling up your clothing will reduce the number of creases and wrinkles, making each item smaller which ultimately allows you more packing space.
- Line items up so they can be seen at once
Standing up items straight in your suitcase enables you to see what you’ve packed at a glance and it makes removing items when you need them so much easier.
- Stuff socks and breakables into shoes
Utilise your shoes by placing smaller items within them, this also provides added protection for fragile items.
- Stack bras on top of each other and fold
Stacking will ensure your bras won’t lose their shape and maximises space within your suitcase.
- Place items that will lose shape on top
Pack lighter items like handbags and straw hats last to save them from being crushed at the bottom of your suitcase.
- And don’t forget your lobster…
A holiday essential, obviously.
