Packing Tips For Travel

After a year of being stuck home, many people are starting to travel again.  Jamestown Shoe and Luggage Service offers these tips for packing:

•    Have a packing list so you don’t forget anything.
•    Use as small a suitcase as possible to deter over packing.
•    Lay out clothing into outfits and then eliminate what you don’t need.
•    Roll your clothes, use packing cubes, or do a combination of both in order to save space in your suitcase.
•    Place heavier items such as shoes at the wheeled end of your suitcase (the bottom of your suitcase) to help keep your suitcase balanced.
•    Bring a bag for laundry.
•    Bring an extra bag or backpack for souvenirs.
•    Keep your liquids in a separate bag.  Use travel size bottles for your liquids.  To help prevent leaking, open the top of the bottle and put a piece of plastic wrap on top and then put the top of the bottle back on.  Make sure that all of your liquids are packed in a resealable plastic bag.
•    Pack your electronics in a separate bag.
•    Jewelry should always remain in a bag that you are hand carrying with you.  Do not check jewelry or any other valuables/medications.
•    If you are traveling with another person, consider packing a few outfits in their suitcase and vice versa in case one of the suitcases is lost
•    Always keep your valuables with you in your carry-on.  Also, pack an extra outfit in your carry-on just in case your luggage is lost.
•    Pack the outfit you need first on the top layer of your luggage so that you have easy access to it.
•    Make your luggage tag unique so that you can easily spot your luggage.

Jamestown Shoe and Luggage Service offers these tips to help make packing less of a chore.
