6 Life-saver Hacks for Packing your Travel Essentials

Going for a weekend trip? With these nifty travel hacks, you’ll be able to pack everything you need in just one backpack or carry-on baggage!

#1 Store important information in your phone.

Hard copy documents are bulky, and will get crumpled in your backpack anyway. Save space (and hassle) by snapping photos of your documents and saving them in your camera roll!

#2 Roll up your clothes, and hide socks in your shoes!

Folding takes up a lot of space, so instead, roll them upnot only is it more space-efficient, it also prevents unsightly fold-lines. For shoes, you can keep them in shape by stuffing your socks inside. Then, slip a disposable shower cap over the soles to prevent your other items from getting soiled.

#3 Coil up those cables.

Loose cables will tangle with each other, and other items in your bag! Avoid this by tying them up, and stashing them in a clear pouch.

#4 Use travel-sized bottles (<100ml)!
