One of the things that are inconvenient and time-consuming before go on holiday is packing. Packing also often takes a lot of energy because you have to think hard about which items to bring and which items to leave at home. Still, you believe everything is essential, especially if you have a long holiday or plan to go to a new destination.
But you can’t bring a lot of stuff to your backpack or case because the plane/ bus/ cars have their capacity. You cannot bring them out, and every human being agrees that a comfortable vacation is not to carry too many things.
- Create a List
Making a to-do list is necessary because it would help you make sure nothing is left at home. Making lists can help you sort out what you don’t have to carry on the case.
When making a list, make sure you know what to do when you travel. Avoid carrying things that are less needed or easy to find when we are at your destination. Ensure the items you put in your backpack are required and cannot be seen when traveling.
2, Roll up the clothes
Rolling clothes is a great way to maximize the use of space in your backpack. When you want to roll clothes, make sure your clothes’ material is clothes that do not wrinkle easily to roll.
It is an exception when you have clothes with wrinkled material, no need to roll them, fold the clothes to be the smallest efficient size.
3. Categorize your stuff
Categorize your belongings, from clothes, toiletries, electronic goods, documents to cables. Making categories like this is to make it easier to check which objects have not been carried away. After you have categorized all the things, the items per sort into bags, plastic, or other small places, it will be easier to enter the input of removing items based on the object’s type.
This small pouch is also useful to avoid getting things mixed up or tucked into your backpack. Using a small bag when packing will make it easier for your imagination to create a scenario of putting these small bags into your gear. It will save you a lot of time, so you don’t have to get your things going in and out again because they are misplaced in your backpack.
4. Arrange Items Based on Priority
Good ordering is based on the level of how often the item is needed. Of course, we take out toiletries and bath clothes when we enter the inn room, unlike the camera or tissue you will need more often when traveling. Use a backpack with lots of pockets, making it easier for you to separate and retrieve these items, which you will need more often.
5. Use a small bag for the main object.
Bring a small bag that you can use anywhere without disturbing your activities. You can fill this little bag with essential and valuable objects, such as cellphones, wallets, tickets, lodging keys, or others. A small bag like this also makes it easier for you to move around without having to drop your backpack back and forth.
6. Bring a supply of plastic bags and rubber bands
Provide a plastic bag and rubber band that you can slip into the small pocket of your backpack. The plastic pouch can be used, for example, in the rain to protect your wallet and cellphone. Carrying a rubber band will also help tidy up your charger cable and earphones when you are in a backpack.
7. Bring Multifunctional Items
The use of multifunctional items will sum up the number of your belongings. For example, when you feel that you have had enough to use a cellphone camera, you no longer need to bring a camera other than a cellphone camera. You can also add other small but essential items to your list.
