It was in Heathrow Airport on a trip to Great Britain that I lost what I call my travel dignity.
Faced with a $100 charge for overweight luggage and with check-in about to close, I did what any budget-conscious traveller would do – I flung open my suitcase and set to work slinging what I could into carry-on luggage.
If only I had packing cubes!!!
These lightweight and breathable travel bags are the latest go-to in travel accessories – and once you’ve used them, you’ll understand why.
They help you pack like a pro, no matter whether you roll or fold your clothes.
Constructed from fabric or nylon, with a zipper lid and mesh window for ventilation and visibility, packing cubes make it easy to get organised and stay that way.
They come in a range of colours and sizes, so you can easily compartmentalise your luggage, if not your life.
My FL suitcase organizer Packing Cubes is a delicate solution.
Get all items compressed, secured and neatly arranged.
You are able to differentiate them by size, purpose etc.
Using luggage packing cubes you will have a lot of free time to enjoy the trip happy moments.
Our set of travel bag organizers meets most of airlines requirements in terms of luggage, backpacks and trunks.
Smaller cubes make short work of toiletries, underwear or chargers, while the larger cubes are good for Cardigans, Jumpers and Jeans.
I travel a lot, so I’ve taken to keeping a couple of the cubes ready to go – a toiletries pack, and another for chargers, data cards and cables. It’s one less thing to think about when packing, and means I don’t forget anything important.
Packing Cubes also cut down packing time on the road. I just pop the cubes into the drawers of my wardrobe.
When it’s time to leave, all I have to do is zip them back up and pop them neatly in my suitcase. The upshot? It means I pack once and never leave anything behind.
Oh, and these days, if my bag tips the scales, it’s an easy fix.
I just whip out one of the packing cubes and voila! – I’m checked-in and on my way.
