Make Your Holiday Travel Easier With Packing Cubes

Packing well isn’t easy or fun, but it’s a lot less stressful with packing cubes. Like mini modular suitcases, they make organisation simple and are your best ally in the fight to keep your suitcase user-friendly.

I love packing cubes. Travelling with a suitcase was always an extreme frustration before I finally decided to give them a try. You can always try to pack more effectively, but many of the great packing techniques unravel the moment you start unpacking your suitcase. Packing cubes are little modular compartments you can use to separate and organise the items in your suitcase so you don’t have to worry about anything getting mixed up when you unpack – or worse, when the TSA decides to search your suitcase and makes a mess of your hard work.


The bottom line: packing cubes are a huge help when you travel and I highly recommend giving them a shot.


  • Once you have your socks, jocks and t-shirts cubes, then you can confidently put USB drives and other more fragile things in the middle of them. Then when you unpack, you won’t have those items dropping out of the middle of a big soup of clothes as they’ll be zipped in to the cubes.

    PS you can fit a lot of rolled-up t-shirts in a smallish cube

  • I’m a big fan of the Eagle Creek Pack-it folder. It’s a great idea if you need to pack shirts or t-shirts that you don’t want to get wrinkled and you save a huge amount of space.
