If you are heading on holiday or your next business trip, packing right is essential to make sure you have what you need to make the most of your trip. Here are eight packing tips that will help you pack smarter.

Roll, don’t fold clothes – Rolling your clothes will save you a lot of time and ensure your clothes have fewer wrinkles.

Stack your bras – Maintain the shape of your bras by stacking them one on top of the other.

Cover your footwear with shoe bags or shower caps – Dirty shoes should not touch your clothes as they will transfer dirt and germs onto clean clothes.

Pack two tops for every bottom – You can always re-wear a pair of bottoms, therefore pack two tops for every bottom.

Pack your clothes inside out – Packing your clothes inside out will reduce wrinkles and prevent them from stains.

Pack the heaviest items closest to the wheels – If you use rolling luggage, your bag will be balanced if you pack heavy items closer to the wheels.

Stick dryer sheets in your suitcase – Dryer sheets will keep your laundry fresh when traveling. Place a few at the base of your bag before you start packing.

Put your toiletries in a transparent bag – Packing your toiletries in a see-through zip lock bag will confine them just in case they leak.
