15 Genius Packing Hacks - Tricks for the Smart Traveller

Wow, it's hard to believe that in a few days I'll be jetting off on the holiday of a lifetime! But I must admit, the fact that I've only done a tiny bit of packing is definitely getting the stress levels rising. Thankfully I don't have to go into total meltdown mode thanks to these 15 packing hacks I've picked up over my travels. They're helping me keep my calm and have reduced the packing freak out drastically and so I knew I needed to share these for everyone else that's jetting off to some fab destinations this summer!

1. String necklaces through your metal straws (or plastic if you don't have some of these in trend environment savers) 

2. Pop some rings or earrings in an empty pill box to prevent the loss of your fave accessory 

3. Fasten bigger earrings through the holes of a button 

4. Use the cloth bags that your shoes or handbags came in or any ziplock packet to store your delicates. You can later use these to store dirty laundry 

5. Store your shoes sole-side down in a shower cap to prevent them from dirtying your clothes

6. Slip your breakables inside socks for extra protection 

7. Use an empty sunglass pouch to store your chargers & earphones

8. Help a floppy hat keep it's shape by placing sarongs, scarfs or small soft items into the crown of the hat and storing it flat at the bottom of your suitcase 

9. Create a packing checklist so you don't forget any must-haves! 

10. Pack heavier items at the bottom of your bag 

11. Pack an extra bag for dirty laundry (see hack 4) 

12. Roll your clothes to optimise your space and prevent creasing 

13. Place your beauty products that could leak into individual Ziplock bags 

14. Only pack what you will wear not what you think you'll wear - always plan your outfits before the trip 

15. Store your socks inside your shoes 

Are you jetting off on a summer vacay?! Make sure you check out these beach bag must haves for the Summer ;) 

These 15 genius hacks are going to make packing for all of your trips completely effortless!
