5 space-saving hacks to pack your luggage for Eid al Adha holiday
Packing does not have to be stressful with these quick and easy tips from household services firm Holiday.ae
Packing is a hassle for most people. And the number one reason is probably the lack of space in luggage (If you’re guilty of the usual over packing like we are, you’ll agree luggage is never big enough). So if you’re planning to take a holiday this Eid al Adha, you could benefit from these 5 space-saving packing hacks from Helping.ae - the leading online platform for household services in the Middle East. The good old list: Making a list of the items you want to bring along on holiday is an old-fashioned piece of advice. But it works! Holiday.ae advises grouping the items into different categories. It also recommends leaving out items that can easily be purchased at a convenience store, such as toothpaste and shower gel, to leave room for other items. Start with the bulkiest items first: Pack bulky items such as jeans and trousers first (at the bottom of your suitcase) and follow those by shirts and blouses. Make you button those up to avoid creases. Store socks and other loose items last and try to fit them in the free corners of your suitcase to maximise space. Corners are also great storage places for T-shirts, according to the online platform. Shoes, shoes, shoes: We don’t know about you, but we always have issues packing our shoes. There never seems to be enough space for them and they’re impossible to roll up! To maintain the shape of your shoes and maximise space, place them in storage bags and place them on the sides of the suitcase. Brands like Nike have great shoe bags. Do invest in a hygiene/beauty travel bag: This tip is not just for the ladies. Men, you use hygiene products i.e. facewash, too. So invest in a small travel bag especially for those products. In in, you can take your essential products, according to Holiday.ae. Some travel bags are even equipped with mini bottles ready to be filled with face wash and shower gel. You could even reuse the bottles every time you travel. We love Victoria Secret travel bags for women. Choose the right suitcase: Choose your luggage according to your destination (and means of travel). Choose a trolley luggage that’s resistant to shocks if you’re traveling by air, recommends Holiday.ae. If you’re traveling by car, opt for a large duffle bag. Thanks to its softness, it can be easily stored in the trunk of the car. We love this Louis Vuitton duffle bag.
