Packing Cubes! Two Strategies For Organizing That Suitcase

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

If you haven’t yet discovered packing cubes….you’re in for a treat. They’ve been kind of a game-changer for me, but it took me a few trips (OK, several trips) to really work out a strategy for using them. In this video, I go into how I use packing cubes to pack for myself, how I use them to pack for the boys, and the items I almost never put into packing cubes.

My luggage (and packing cubes) are all from Away Travel, but I’ve linked some additional options below.

  1. Just bought some Eagle Creek sets for a business trip and it was a total game-changer. Everything was organized, I could then throw dirty things into their own cube and separate. Totally agree. Cubes are awesome.

  2. Regarding labeling the kids’ cubes, each kid has a different cube color. We swear by the eBags ones, particularly the 3 medium size set. I can’t be concerned about various sizes for various things. We fill up the mediums and are done.

  3. Very timely for me – fellow Michigander leaving for California for a week on Thursday and had never heard of packing cubes! I still have time to get some from Amazon!

    I bought the eagle creek packing set and LOVE it. Really makes things easier. But using their compression bags is LIFE-CHANGING! I do not say that lightly. Made it possible to use a carry-on for three weeks in northern Europe in late fall. The heavy sweaters and down layers became tiny and slippery and easy to pack. I bought the eagle creak brand in these as well but I would not recommend them, due to the zip-lock style zippers not holding up. There are many other brands on the market now so maybe someone else knows which are good. At some point I will need to replace mine, which will mean more plastic in landfills.

    Always pack a change of clothes or at least undies in your carry-on if you check your luggage. Things get lost!
