Travel 101: Organizing Luggage for Travel

traveling bluesPacking travel luggage has always been a dilemma for most of the travelers, me included. Part of my worries are how to fit in all the clothes I want and need to bring including all the ‘extras’  without just clumsily throwing everything in the luggage.

I’d say after over a few travels, packing neatly is both a talent and a skill that I have yet to muster. One way or another, travelers, would have the dilemma of where to put one bulky essential to the already-full travel bag, or finding where they put this and that in their luggage.  I experience these same things.

Here are few organizer pouches must-haves that have helped me on every travel.

Space Compressor Bags

Clothes tops the list of the bulk in anyone’s luggage. Of course, we tend to add some extra clothes in our luggage for some unexpected trips (I’m pleading guilty on this). Space bags, packing envelopes and cubes are the best way to handle this. It helps us, travelers, to organize clothes, underwear and other clothing. I myself have two packing envelopes to sort the used and unused clothes afterwards. A note though that it lessens the bulk of your luggage but note that it does not lessen the weight.

Shoe Bags

Shoes being one of the bulkiest, it is but crucial to find a nice luggage for that and not just any other plastic bag. Especially when you’re travelling with a number of shoes, Lilian Tote’s shoe organizer may come in handy. It can pack up to six shoes all together.

Toiletries, Electronics and other Miscellaneous

It would be also best if there are separate pouches for your electronic gadgets (chargers, headsets, etc.),

toiletries and other things you want to sort. This helps for easily locating, and knowing where to return your things.

With my personal travels, I always want to devote my time more outside, hence, less time to fix my things in the hotel (I’m pretty sure a lot are with me on this). So these organizers help a lot. Zip locks are an essential too for leaky toiletries.

You’ll be surprised as much as I was with how these organizers can do. Especially for new to traveling, it’s hard to handle too many things you have in your luggage, so hope this helps!

I'm Phoebe, a writer who lives in the bustling city of Manila in the Philippines. Apart from staying in this archipelagic country with various interesting beaches, mountains and plains, hey,I still want to travel the world. I was lucky to visit a few Asian countries. I found the (very!) best egg tarts I've ever tasted in Jordan, Kowloon; fell truly in-love with Thailand's serenity and Phuket's seascape; visited Singapore three times and finding out new interesting places each time; and flew at 72 meters above sea level in Sentosa's Zipline. With these few trips, it fueled me to achieve more travels in the next few years. I dreamt to travel farther and wider across the globe, with the promise of setting foot on Paris before I die. I'm not afraid to travel alone. And I'm not afraid to get lost, that is part of the journey. I can walk all day and night exploring the city, the culture and relish the different delicacies. With travelling, there is much languages to learn, cultures to understand, people to know, and I am ready for that. These all shows the risk-taker in me. Apart from jumping to different places, I love to work and to write (wherein working and writing does not make any difference to me). I take opportunities as they come, with the fear that it will never come again. With that said, I am very eager to take part on each of your journeys and share whatever experiences and knowledge I have to help each of you (our readers) have a trip that you cannot forget. Cheers!
