No one wants to lug around a bunch of luggage while traveling, but what about when traveling to a cold climate? Travel protection brand, Protect Your Bubble, shares 4 tips to keep your suitcase light and, perhaps even avoid checking a bag.
1. Check the weather. Knowing the average weather of the destination in advance will help travelers plan their wardrobe. Is it rainy this time of year? Snowy? Icy? It’s important to pack all-weather boots to keep your feet warm AND dry. It’s also a good idea to pack a warm, water-proof jacket with a removable hood to protect against snow and rain.
2. Pack in outfits. Travelers shouldn’t just pick out items of clothing they like, but rather pick out full outfits. Once it’s determined what they’ll wear each day, pack them away together. This way, travelers won’t have to dig through their suitcase to get dressed. Items will be together. When planning outfits, it’s recommended to bring items that can be worn a few times. For instance, don’t just bring 5 sweaters; bring 2 cardigans that can be paired with other shirts/pants/dress and worn a few times. Shoes and accessories should all work together and be interchangeable.
3. Editing is key. Don’t pack for the “what ifs.” This will make for a cluttered, over-packed suitcase. If something doesn’t match the overall color scheme or motif, don’t take it along. Before adding something into the suitcase, travelers should ask themselves, “Do I really need this?” Let this question be the guide.
4. Make the most of your space. Rolling clothes (rather than folding) takes up less space and makes for fewer wrinkles. Space-saving bags are a must for consumers are who trying to conserve space in their suitcase. They are affordable and provide an incredible vacuum effect, and help tightly pack items. We recommend using two or three and stack them in the suitcase.
