Enjoy your travels when you can find what you need!No matter where your travels take you this summer, you’ll need to pack a bag, and you’ll want to do it right.  No one wants to spend their precious moments of travel searching for their favorite top, or pulling it out to find it wrinkled beyond belief!
Top five packing tips:

  1. Use packing cubes! This month’s give away is helpful and free! Keep everything stored away so you don’t have to re-fold every time you take out one pair of socks!
  2. Avoid wrinkles by packing garments with tissue paper and inside a plastic baggie!  How? Check out this great video from The Travel Channel on avoiding wrinkles!
  3. Use packing cubes like the ones recommended here from Travel and Leisure! These can be used to keep garments and other items from sliding around (avoids wrinkles) and keeps everything in it’s place!
  4. Separate items within your cubes with zip-top baggies! Label them so you know what goes back where!
  5. Have a ready-to-go health kit.  Anyone who’s traveled can tell you how frustrating it can be to find a pharmacy at 2am when you’re sick in a new city.  Keep items like Band-aids, Neosporin, pain relievers, cold medicine, medicine for stomach trouble, itch relief ointment, allergy medicines (yes, even if you don’t have allergies at home – you can be allergic to something in the air in a new place) etc.
