Packing Pro

As I mentioned yesterday, I just returned from 2.5 weeks in Europe. While there, I spent the majority of my time in The Netherlands, plus a night in Ghent, Belgium, and few nights in Rome, Italy. I packed everything I needed in one suitcase, plus carried on a backpack (mainly for my MacBook, Nintendo 3DS, and plane snacks).

A few trips ago, I started using packing cubes for two reasons: (1) if my suitcase were to pop open, hardly anything would spill out and everything would be easy to pop right back in, and (2) I can arrange them like puzzle pieces to get the right fit without having to do a bunch of re-packing of squishing when it’s time to close my suitcase.

I highly recommend them! I’ve got a multi-size 3-pack (which hold my clothes) and another set of longer, slimmer ones (great for filling random spots and corralling smaller items).

My suitcase is the Delsey Helium Colours 26″ 4 Wheel Trolley and the striped toiletry tote is Kate Spade.
