"Traveling literally makes my soul happy."It's a quote that I shared with Pink Pangea - a community that encourages women to travel and share their experiences with like-minded individuals. Last month, Pink Pangea featured my personal story about my trip to Jamaica - read here.
I find that preparing for a trip and packing is a simple task but I know for others, that preparing for a trip can be challenging and that's because people either over-pack and are weighed down throughout their travels or they don't know what to pack.
I like to travel and am working on increasing my travel experiences, but the reason preparing for my trips are so easy is because I use packing cubes. Even on vacation I find a way to be organized. Did you think traveling was any different? Nope. I'm just a natural organizer who can't live in dysfunction and even on the go I must have order. That's why I love these packing cubes that I purchased from Marshalls because they were exactly what I was looking for. Trust me - if you don't have packing cubes then you need to make that investment. Here's why:
I spent between $8-$10 for a pack of cubes that came with 3 to a box in all different sizes. So, I ended up purchasing two packs that way I could have a total of 6 packing cubes. I like that they vary in size: small, medium and large. They're durable and easy to withstand the washing machine.
I can place a decent amount of items in one packing cube just by rolling them and placing them with liked items.
The mesh material allows me to view the content of each cube and makes it easy for me to grab an item out of the suitcase if necessary.
So, why are packing cubes necessary?
Packing cubes can protect your clothes from getting damaged.
Not only do packing cubes save you time and money but they also protect your clothes from being mishandled or even damaged. They can also save you the embarrassment of having your suitcase searched by TSA which isn't the most pleasant feeling. Make the investment by utilizing packing cubes in your suitcase so that you can focus more on your travels and having fun!
