Packing cubes FAQs

Join the Packing Cube my FL community!

Here are the questions I am most frequently asked about Packing Cubes. Do you have a question I missed? Leave it in the comments and I’ll add it!

Packing cubes are relatively small containers made of fabric, have a rectangular shape, and they are used for packing clothing. They zip closed and are small enough so that you can fit several ones into a carry-on bag, suitcase, or backpack.

With different sizes and shapes, it is possible to find the right packing cubes to fit perfectly into your luggage, just like Tetris!

Packing cubes keep your clothing slightly compressed and your packing well organized. Once you start using them, you won’t look back!

The cubes do definitely keep things separated, and if that helps you be organized on a trip then great–that’s just the secondary function to me for work trips. For personal trips, I will often put my baby girl’s clothes in one cube and baby boy’s in another, then drop both cubes into a suitcase.

Most of the clothes I bring are wrinkle-resistant, so no. Occasionally something will have a few wrinkles so I will hang it up the night before I’m supposed to wear it. Rarely does anything get really wrinkled, but on those occasions I hang up my outfit in the bathroom while I shower to steam out the wrinkles. I avoid using hotel irons at all costs–I’ve had too many mishaps!
