Rather than throwing all of your clothes into your suitcase and dealing with it never, you can at the very least organise them into specific sections to decrease your chances of shouting “where’s that one sweater?” as you comically throw all of your belongings over your shoulder. And hey, they’re certainly better for privacy if you ever need to retrieve something out of your suitcase in the middle of bag check-in if you’ve managed to blow the weight limit.
How to use packing cubes
There’s no right or wrong way to use packing cubes for travelling. They’re designed to help you neatly organise your luggage, but a few ways you can use them are to separate your dirty shoes from your clothes, to group together specific outfits, contain all of your toiletries in one place or just divide your clothing depending on its type, e.g. underwear, socks, shirts and pants.
It’s recommended that you roll any clothing you plan to fit into each packing cube, since it’ll take up less space and be less likely to become crinkled.
Below, we’ve rounded up a bunch of packing cubes for you to take the next time you travel.
