Pack Smart and Save Space With Your Suitcase

If you want to avoid a severe case of bulging suitcase syndrome, it's important to know how to make the most out of your luggage's interior space. When you pack smart, you can pack more. Whether you want to save room for souvenirs or you need to take both business and casual wear along for the trip, it's a good idea to maximize your packing capability.

When packing a suitcase, be sure to roll your clothes instead of folding them. This method works equally well for pants and shirts, but also works with accessories. Not only will folded items take up less space, but they will also suffer less from wrinkling and creases that may otherwise be a problem with traditional folds.

Most luggage features internal compartments or extra zipper areas for storage. You can either use these areas for smaller items or you can leave them available for souvenirs and other items that you pick up during your trip. It's important to make use of compartments, which may help to eliminate the need for carrying additional bags. With that being said, it's important to note that overstuffing your luggage may lead to excessive baggage fees when traveling by air. Due to the limited amount of space available, it's essential that you confirm size restrictions for any carry-on luggage and measure your suitcase at home to avoid having to pay penalty fees.

Most travelers prefer to separate their clothing and their incidentals, such as toothpaste, hair products and other similar items. The best way to do this is to purchase a small luggage accessory with plenty of separated compartments. This will allow for proper placement, organization and will prevent you from having to stuff your clothing into the same area with your toiletries. If you are using public transportation, it's important to familiarize yourself with any restrictions relating to carry-on baggage content prior to arriving for your trip. This will help you to avoid delays and will make for a much less stressful experience.

If you are traveling by car or rail and are not as limited with the size of your luggage, a softside suitcase will prove to be the most flexible and accommodating for your packing needs. When it comes to preparing for a trip, everyone worries about forgetting something. To ease this concern, it's a good idea to make a list of everything that you want to take before you actually begin packing. As you place items inside of your suitcase, mark them off from the list and move on to the next item. If you do happen to forget something, don't worry. Most areas offer shops and grocery stores, which will make it convenient for you to pick up any items that you overlooked during the packing process.

Aside from the convenience of having more room and being able to pack more items, the method of rolling you clothes instead of folding them and using all available compartments will result in less luggage and less chances of getting tripped up by having too many bags.
