How to Effectively Pack a Suitcase
Vacations, business trips, or family events – it doesn't matter where you go, your suitcase will always accompany you. That's why it is important to pack it properly and make sure that it won't be a headache for you. Which clothes are the most important ones to take? How do you fit everything into a carry-on bag? If you're packing checked luggage suitcase, what goes on top, and what goes on the bottom? The following tips will help you deal with all these questions.
Plan and make a list
Feeling prepared is half of the job done. So always make a plan considering how many days you are going to travel. Bear in mind what activities you know you will participate in, what the weather will be like, and what non-clothing essentials you will need.

Divide your list into must-haves and like-to-haves, so that you will avoid taking too much. Your luggage is supposed to be your helper during the trip, not a burden - nothing is worse than lugging around a massive suitcase full of things you don't even use, and paying expensive overweight fees.
Be smart about your wardrobe
If you want to be sure that all of your clothes match (including shoes as well), stick to the "three colors" rule: Choose only clothes of three colors (one of which is a shade of black, white, or grey) and this will allow you to mix and match all of your luggage items in any combination that you want. Having a coordinated wardrobe will also cut down on how much you need to bring, because you can reuse certain items with multiple outfits.
Rock and roll
It's one thing to pack shorts and summer dresses, as they don't take up much space. But how do you fit your favorite jeans, sweaters, and jackets into a small carry-on suitcase? It's simple: roll, don't fold. This way, your stuff will take up less space. Short and pants are also less prone to wrinkling this way.

You can pack small loose articles of clothing into compression sacks, which not only frees up space but keeps you from digging through your whole suitcase every time you need a clean pair of socks!
Use the free space
In order to pack more, fill up those holes! Put socks and other small items into your shoes, stack your underwear in your bra cups, and put some a towel inside your hat to prevent it from wrinkling and to use that extra space efficiently. Don't forget to fill up the corners of the suitcase as well as any extra pockets that you may have.
Know your order
When packing, you need to create a special order and stick to it. Fragile items should go in the middle, so they can be cushioned by the other items. Emergency and handy items like rain gear should be on top and easily accessible.

You can also divide your suitcase into sections Keep all of your toiletries in one place in a sealed plastic bag, and clothes and gadgets in their own special sections. This is easier with suitcase dividers and compression packs, but you can also just use things like your shoes to "divide" up the sections. This way, you won't have to spend a lot of time trying to find something that you need.
With these tips in mind, you can enjoy a stress-free packing. No matter how unpredictable any trip can be, you will always feel secure that you haven't forgotten anything, and you should be able to find what you need when you need it.
