Make a list

When it comes to packing, many of us put what we consider appropriate into it without thinking about whether we are really going to need it or not. Therefore, our first advice is to make a list of what you will really need . As for clothes, a good idea is to choose clothes that combine with each other to be able to create different looks with few pieces. Logically, you should take into account what activities you are going to do there and the climate of the place.

Start with what weighs the most

Once you have made the list, you can get to work. What we recommend is that you put first what weighs the most and what wrinkles the least, especially the shoes. It is best to place them in the area of ​​the wheels so that, when lifting the suitcase, they are completely down. It is important that the shoes are stored in bags so that the clothes do not get dirty although, yes, to make better use of the space you can put socks, belts, cameras, chargers inside them …. In addition, we recommend that you also place hygiene and beauty products on the bottom. In this way, if one of them is broken or opened, it will be more difficult for the garments to stain. Of course, it is very important that you take into account the airport restrictions regarding liquid products and the weight of the suitcases.


Once you have placed the shoes (we recommend that you choose a few pairs, since they are the elements that take up the most space), you can begin to place the clothes. A good trick is to roll it instead of folding it, since rolled garments take up less space and wrinkle less. It is important that t-shirts and shirts, which are the garments that wrinkle the most, are placed last. A good trick is to make the trip with the clothes and footwear that occupy the most, a look that you can reserve for the return trip. In this way, you will have more free space in the suitcase.
