After packing and unpacking my suitcase many times, I finally gave packing cubes a try.
I don't know about you, but I've looked at packing cubes and thought why in the world do I need a bag to put inside my bag? This is silly. Well, after watching all the hype and buzz, I figured I should give it a try.
How did it go you wonder? Let me just say this.. each member of my family has a set of their own, unique in their own color! So, let's chat about packing cubes.
A few reasons I now love my packing cubes:
I don't have to put my undergarments into the unknown dresser drawers. (Yes, maybe I'm a bit of a germ-o-phobe.) I simply unzip the bag, and place them in the drawer. Simple!
I honestly find I can fit more into my suitcase.
They keep my clothing less wrinkled. By reducing the shifting around, the items stay better folded. I will even roll items such as pjs, tee-shirts and exercise clothing .
I recently packed for my trip to Ireland using packing cubes. I have a few pics as well as a quick video showing how easy it is.
TIP: Have each family member have their own cube color. When packing for a trip, mix the colors up in the suitcases this way if one suitcase gets lost, that person isn't without all of their belongings.
