4 Tips for Packing the Perfect Carry-On Bag

4 Tips for Packing the Perfect Carry-On Bag

June 8, 2018

You may think choosing a destination, booking a flight and planning the perfect summer vacation is the hard part — that is to say, until you start packing your carry-on bag with all the necessities for a successful trip. Although your favorite carry-on bag may look large when it’s empty, we’ve all experienced the struggle of realizing that it is a bit too small to fit everything you need without over packing and having to check it at the gate. These four tips will ensure you pack the perfect carry-on bag and avoid those pesky fees for checking a bag:

  1. Prepare, but don’t over-prepare

There are a lot of variables to think about when traveling, like how long you’ll be gone, changes in weather and if you’ll be attending both formal and casual functions, to name a few. While it is important to prepare for it all, be mindful that over preparing almost always results in over packing. For example, if the forecast is calling for rain during your travels, consider packing only one light raincoat that matches many outfits rather than several bulkier raincoats in bright, accented colors. Also, consider your proximity to laundry services and utilize them if you’ll be staying at the destination for a long period of time. This will help significantly cut back on the amount of clothing you pack.

  1. Invest in a space saver

Good news! You don’t have to toss your favorite suitcase or duffel bag and replace it with a larger one in order to gain more space in your carry-on. Instead, consider investing in a space saver like compression bags or packing cubes. They’ll help free up tons of space in your bag, and they’re a lot more cost effective than purchasing an entirely new bag!

  1. Don’t pack your bulkiest items, wear them

If you’ve ever tried to stuff bulky clothing like a pea coat or suit jacket into a carry-on bag, you probably realized there isn’t much room for anything else. If you must carry a heavy, bulky coat on your trip, simply wear or carry it instead of packing it. Likewise, boots are another large item to consider wearing to the airport instead of packing.

  1. Roll instead of folding

You may have always been told to neatly fold your clothes when packing your bag, but the next time you go on a big trip, try rolling your jeans, shirts, socks and undergarments! Rolling your clothes will not only save valuable space, but also it will reduce wrinkling.
