One of the toughest things to do while packing for a trip is fitting everything you want to bring into your luggage. Hubby insists that we travel light and I have a Osprey carryon piece that turns into a backpack. I love my carryon bag, but figuring out how to pack it the best way took a bit of planning.
I found that packing cubes allow you to organize your clothing snug into space saving bags. This makes it easy to pack and even easier to unpack your stuff . Clothes will stay more wrinkle free and do not get crushed during travel. It is also much easier to find that cardigan if you know where to look. I ordered the 3 piece Packing Cube Set at a discounted rate from Florious in exchange for an unbiased review. There are several things that I thought were pretty neat about their product.
The 3 piece set comes in a large black bag that can be used as your dirty laundry bag. Three different sizes are great to meet all my packing needs. The bags are very lightweight, every little bit counts! Each bag fits neatly into the other, which makes storing them easy. The quality is excellent. Each bag has a sturdy zipper with a tag that makes pulling the sipper open or shut even easier. The seams are covered with fabric to prevent fraying when you wash the bags. Each bag has a handle, which is a nice added bonus if you like to hang up your stuff. Did I mention they look good too? Apple Green with black mesh - very stylish! When you open your suitcase at the airport for inspection, your suitcase will look very organized and handsome :)
There are so many ways to use packing cubes, here is one popular solution:
* Large (17.5" x 12.75" x 3.25") for sweaters, pants and other large items
* Medium (13.75" x 9.75" x 3") for shirts
* Small (11" x 6.75" x 3") for socks, underwear, electronic accessories
Florious is the only planet friendly choice on Amazon I found so far, that makes their product out of recycled pop bottles. I like the idea that Florious not only creates versatile, good looking packing cubes, but also helps to reduce landfill waste and does something positive for our planet.
