Pack for a Weekend Getaway

Pack for a Weekend Getaway

WE'RE DREAMING OF ALLURING WEEKENDS AWAY, FULL OF VIBRATING CITIES AND LONG DAYS OF EXPLORING. IF YOU CAN'T TRAVEL FAR AT THE MOMENT, WHY NOT TAKE A LOOK AT DESTINATIONS CLOSE TO HOME AND EXPLORE YOUR OWN CITY AND SURROUNDINGS? PACKING FOR A WEEKEND GETAWAY CAN BE TRICKY... SPACE IS OFTEN LIMITED AND IT'S EASY TO OVERPACK. KEEP SCROLLING FOR OUR BEST WEEKEND PACKING TIPS.

1. USE PACKING CUBES

Packing cubes help you maximize suitcase space while preventing unwanted wrinkles. Below, we have gathered our best space-saving tips:

1. Fit your clothes into a maximum of 3 cubes: Limit yourself to only using one cube for underwear and 1-2 cubes for clothes. You don’t need more for a weekend away.

2. Mix and Match outfits: Bring bottoms that can be used both day and night, and that can be used with different tops. Also, only bring one sweater that goes with all your outfits, etc.

3. Wear your heaviest clothes while traveling: If weight or space is an issue, wear those heavy boots and that fluffy sweater on the plane.

2. GIVE EACH ITEM ITS OWN BAG OR CASE

Separate all your items into different organizers, bags, and cases so that you can easily find what you’re looking for without having to turn your bag inside out. Organizing your suitcase will also maximize space in addition to making unpacking and packing a joyful bliss - both at the hotel and when you’re back at home.

Personally, we love the BA Traveler sets as they are both stylish and functional! Get them in black or blush, and in sets of 8 or 4.

3. MAXIMIZE YOUR SUITCASE SPACE

The small gaps that run along your suitcase are actually perfect for storing soft items like your stockings, tights, pajamas, and yoga pants. Roll them up and tuck them into the gaps for maximized storage.

Can’t close your bag because of all your sweaters on top? Expand it by unzipping the expansion zipper (that other zipper that doesn’t unlock the bag). But now it won’t fit in the carry-on compartment you think? Well, when your bag is shut, close the expansion zipper again, and voila! Your bag is closed and back to carry-on size.

 

4. DO A PACKING LIST &PLAN YOUR OUTFITS AHEAD

Start off by making a packing list. To make things easier for you, we’ve made a Weekend Trip Packing List that we’d love to share. Check it out here. When packing for a shorter trip, we recommend planning your outfits in advance. Don’t bring things you don’t use at home - you won’t use them on vacation either.

Then, pick out what you think you’ll need and cut it in half. When you get back from your trip, it’s a good idea to review your packing list again and think about which clothes you actually used. Maybe there are things you didn’t use that you can leave at home on your next trip?

 

5. USE A LEAK-PROOF CASE FOR ALL YOUR TOILETRIES

Place your toiletries in leak-proof cases. Should you fly to your weekend destination, chances are that the air pressure will make your lotions and shampoos leak a bit. We recommend splitting up your toiletries by category, like, for example, a Toothbrush case for the toothbrush, a Souki case for your nail polishes and lotions, and a Makeup case for your makeup. Then, you place all these smaller cases in a Beauty Box large to make sure it all stays put in one place.

6. PLACE A DRYER SHEET IN YOUR BAG

Tired of your clothes smelling like planes, trains and automobiles? Place a dryer sheet inside your bag to ensure that your clothes stay fresh and clean throughout your trip.

 

Happy organizing! We can’t wait to see you pack like a pro.

xoxo,

Bag-all
