Top Tips for Packing Your Carry On
Packing for a trip can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to your carry-on luggage. But fear not, we’ve got you covered with some tips on how to pack the perfect carry-on for your next adventure.
First things first, make sure to check your airline’s baggage allowance for carry-on luggage. Some airlines are more generous than others, so it’s important to know what you’re working with. If you’re lucky enough to have up to 40 lbs. allowance, you’re already off to a great start.
When it comes to packing, always remember to pack the items you need least at the bottom and the items you’ll need to take out for security at the top. This includes your electronics, liquids, and toiletries. And if you can, opt for soft, squishable luggage to make it easier to find a spot in the overhead bins.
Speaking of toiletries, don’t forget to pack a small bottle of cleanser and some cotton pads to freshen up between flights. And if you’re feeling fancy, throw in a moisturizing sheet mask to arrive at your destination looking and feeling refreshed.
One of the most important things to pack in your carry-on is fresh underwear and socks, along with at least one full change of clothes. If your luggage gets lost or delayed, having a fresh change of clothes and underwear will be a lifesaver.
If you’re flying with an airline with a small carry-on allowance, roll your clothes to maximize space, and consider using vacuum-sealed storage bags. And if you have some items that won’t fit in your bag, ask for an empty duty-free shopping bag while passing through duty-free so you can carry those extra items that won’t fit in your carry-on.
Lastly, don’t forget to download your favorite shows and playlists before flying, and always remember your passport and/or ID! With these tips, you’ll be all set for a stress-free and well-packed carry-on for your next adventure.
