Delayed flights, traffic jams, lost luggage and mix ups with accommodation are guaranteed to put a dampener on the the start a vacation, but these usually can’t be avoided 😔.
The one thing that can be avoided is the stress of packing.
Its never fun running around last minute trying to stuff things into your suitcase or travel bag only to realize that your luggage is overweight at the airport or that you’ve forgotten the one thing you really needed once you get to your destination.
Here’s how to make packing for a trip super easy and stress free!🧳
Staying organized is key when packing for a trip or vacation, you’ll be a lot less likely to get stressed and forget things.
Packing cubes are an absolute life saver when it comes to optimizing space in your luggage and staying organized.
They allow you to keep your belongings separated so you know exactly where everything is and you don’t have to unpack everything to get the one thing you need.
This is especially useful for going through security or if you have a layover and need to get at some things from your suitcase before reaching your final destination.

Similar to packing cubes a laundry bag is a must have for staying organized.
You aren’t going to need it when packing for your trip but it will come in super handy when you have to pack your bags to go home.
A laundry bag like this compact one will stop your dirty clothes from making your clean clothes dirty and smelly.
This will make unpacking and doing laundry when you get back from your trip so must quicker and easier. You’ll thank yourself later!
Organizing clothes is one thing but trying to keep jewelry organized is a whole other ball game.
I don’t know about you but whenever I try to pack necklaces they always end up getting so tangled I can’t get them apart to wear them on my trip! Its also really easy to lose rings and earrings during the packing or unpacking process.
This jewelry organizer envelope is perfect for when you’re travelling. Most jewelry organizers are heavy and bulky but this is great for trips because of how little space it takes up in a bag. It also has custom storage for rings, stud earrings, hoop earring, bracelets and necklaces.
Similar to jewelry, chargers, cables and other electronic items can be a nightmare to pack and keep organized.
With tangled wires, phones, chargers and batteries usually thrown into the bottom of a bag its no wonder we end up forgetting things!
An electronics organizer is a great investment if you travel often. It will keep all your gadgets together so that you can easily access and keep track of them.
There’s one thing that can make packing much more stressful than is needs to be, and that’s liquids.
Lots of the toiletries we want to bring with us on a trip come in packaging that’s not suitcase friendly. Either the bottle is too big or not durable enough to be thrown into a bag without leaking.
These 4 in 1 travel liquid dispensers are the coolest thing I’ve seen in a while.
They solve all issues associated with packing liquids. You can dispense four different liquids into them so you have just the right amount for your trip. They are also designed to protect against leaking due to air pressure changes, bumps and knocks.
If you are going on a long trip and need to bring more toiletries and cosmetics then this travel toiletry organizer bag from Amazon is the perfect stylish solution.
It has a water proof lining and can be hung up, leaving the bathroom vanity clutter free. With multiple pockets, sections and pouches everything is easily visible and accessible making packing a lot easier.
No matter what mode of transport you take there’s always go to be a limit to how many bags you can bring!
It can be hard trying to fit everything for your trip into your luggage when you need to pack things for the journey as well.
When you’re taking a long haul flight or going on a road trip you want to make sure that you’re comfortable and can get some sleep. This usually means bringing a pillow, a blanket and packing warmer clothes you might not need while actually on vacation.
To optimize space in your bags and make packing easier get a handy two in one travel pillow and blanket like this one from Amazon. It has a clip and a strap so it can be easily attached to your luggage and won’t take up space inside your bag.
Having items that can double job is so important when packing for a trip. Not only will they save you space, they’ll also make it easier for you to remember everything.
Another example is this travel makeup case which is also a free standing LED mirror.
I can’t count the number of times I’ve been in a hotel that has had super bad lighting in the bathroom and I wished I’d brought a mirror so I could do my makeup near the window.
This makeup case is perfect for keeping all your makeup together and the LED light mirror makes it super easy to do your makeup wherever you are!
