Travelers: More Packing Tips
You can find packing tips on just about every travel site. Some of these you may have heard about. Others may be new to you.
Ever had your luggage lost for more than just a day? If you're traveling with someone else, it might be a good idea to divide your clothes between the two suitcases. If one gets lost, the other may make it. It's also a good idea to have some underclothes and anything you can't do without in your carry on bag. If all your checked luggage is lost...you're still prepared for the next day.
Speaking of lost luggage...I make a packing list. Then I add a copy to my carry on bag. If I need to list what is in my lost bag, I can pull out that list and am good to go.
If you don't have a small pill case that fits in your luggage, use small resealable bags. Label each one and put all the small ones in a larger bag. They stay together and you know what is in each small bag.
Save the small sheets of bubble wrap and lay one or two in the bottom of your luggage. Use it to wrap valuables you purchase or anything you don't want damaged. If you don't need it, it doesn't take up much room at all.
When putting anything in your luggage that you don't want to leak all over, put it in a resealable bag before packing it. If it doesn't leak, you have an extra bag.
