How to Pack Light for Your Next Trip

If you are planning to travel in a plane on your next trip or vacation, you may want to consider packing a lot lighter than you normally do. With the way the new rules are with airlines and with more and more airlines beginning to charge for each bag other than your carry on, you will save yourself a lot of money as well as a lot of time and effort it takes to lug around all that extra luggage.

The best thing you can do is try to be able to use just your carry on suitcase. So you will need to figure out the bare essentials that you will need to take with you on your trip. This will also help you cut down on money.

It's a good idea to have cloths are specially made for travel, this would be lightweight and wrinkle free types of clothing. This way you won't have to worry about your clothes if you stuff in a lot into your carry on bag. You also might want to add one of those collapsible types of bags to carry stuff in that you might buy on your trip.

Try and stick with one color for your clothes you plan to travel with. This way it will be a lot easier to mix your wardrobe easily. Black, gray, navy or white for skirts, pants or dresses can all be mixed with a number of different colors of blouses. For men a couple of pairs of pants and a few different shirts can last an entire week.

Use a small zipper bag for underwear and pack one for each day you will be gone a long with a couple of extra. Once you have these items in the zipper bag, before zipping sit on the bag to get all of the air out and then zip it. This way you should be able to easily fit the bag in a side pocket of your suitcase.

If you know the hotel you are going to will have shampoo, soap and conditioner, don't bring them along with you. Or if you are not sure then just get yourself the travel size so that there will be less bulk to add to your suitcase when packing it.

When you go to pack all of your items it's important that if you have a dress or a suit that you put them in first and let the edges hang over the suitcase. Fold everything else in half and then start rolling them into a cylinder, this is typical military style of packing. This will give you a lot more space and it also cuts down on wrinkles. Place these cylinders on the suit or dress and then fold the ends over the items you rolled up. Finally put your shoes on top. Note: with shoes, try to only bring two pair, the ones you are wearing and one in your suitcase.

Final note: If you plan on buying something new to wear while on your trip then take less clothes with you and wear what you buy while you are still on your trip. Also, try and leave a little room for anything that you might buy while on your trip.
