Most people would choose to forego travel organizers as they are another aspect to think of, as if packing for a trip wasn’t enough of an effort. Also known as packing organizers, these are not an absolute necessity, but they do make life a lot easier when they are used right. These organizers can come in different shapes and sizes, and each kind is designed to contain and compress a specific set of items.
Packing cubes are ideally used for rolling and compressing different clothes, ranging from shirts and shorts, to jeans. Some of these come with a 2-sided version that separates the clean clothes from the dirt clothes, a great feature for those taking long vacations and are expecting to accumulate a large amount of laundry. Cubes help compress the clothes, leaving more space in a suitcase, and minimize wrinkles. Packing folders with a folding board are a handy tool for those who struggle creating identical folds and end up with uneven gaps in the suitcase. This keeps clothing compressed and neatly organized in a suitcase with minimal wrinkles. It is a good tool to have when going on business trips wherein clothes need to remain crisp and clean. This will save time trying to haphazardly iron out collared shirts and slacks.
Garment sleeves are typically used for longer formal wear, corporate attires, and other clothes that are prone to wrinkling. These items are packed neatly and can easily be hung upon arrival. This is a must-have for frequently travelling professionals who have planned attires and cannot afford to waste time steaming out the wrinkles in their clothing. For thick clothes like sweaters, jackets, and hoodies, which tend to take up too much space in the suitcase, a compression sac flattens the clothing to clear up space. Some compression sacs require vacuumed, while others simple need to be rolled to push the air out. Smaller pouches and organizers can be used to store and secure items, such as toiletries and make-up. It is advisable to keep these things separate from clothes to ensure that they will not spill over and ruin the rest of the luggage. This type of organizer is typically made of water-resistant materials such as plastic and nylon to ensure that its contents are secure. Pouches can also be used to contain jewelry as to not lose the little pieces. Mothers tend to love these little organizers as they come in handy while packing toiletries for the whole family, or their personal make-up.
