Every few weeks I take my laundry to Mrs. Andreas who washes and folds it. I confess, I’m always amazed when I get it back. I bring it in two or three bags and by the time she’s done, it’s folded neatly into a small cube. A small cube that weighs 25 lbs., so I must take breaks while carrying it home but it’s amazing how efficient you can be with space when you use it right.
TravelWise Packing Cube System
When I was sent a Weekender 5 pc Packing Cube set from Eat Smart Products. My first thought was “Wait this goes inside your suitcase? So I’ll have less room in there. ”
I could have NOT been more wrong! The TraveWise Packing Cube System is so great. It keeps your clothes organized, neat and makes it so easy to pack. I never realized what a hassle it is to find things while you’re traveling or, worse, to not be able to keep track of what is soiled and what is clean. I would just get frustrated and dump the suitcase out onto the hotel room floor. Which means I always had to set aside time to repack on my last day.
The TravelWise Packing Cube System is 5 small individual cubes that zipper shut, so you can divide and organize your clothes by category. One of the big secrets is to roll your clothes rather than folding them. I didn’t think that would make such a difference but it really does make extra room as well as keeping the clothes from creasing. The individual cubes have mesh inserts which helps keep your clothes fresh as keeps things organized by being able to see what is in each. They even have a handle so they are easy to tote.
So are you ready to have a super organized and neat suitcase? Leave a comment below and you could win your very own 5 piece Packing Cube set!
Cut a dryer sheet into 5 strips and tuck one into each travel cube.
Bring along a few freezer bags to seal smelly items (dirty socks etc) away from the rest of your clothes.
If socks or undies get too smelly just toss them. You can always buy more when you get home.
Finally figure out how many pairs of underwear and socks you need. Then bring two more. Better to have them and not need them than to need them and not have them.
