3. Find an answer to the age-old question of how much underwear to pack.
4. Beware of those dreaded luggage weight restrictions.
5. And definitely don’t forget about TSA’s rules for packing liquids.
Containers with no more than 3.4 oz of liquid go in a 1-quart, see-through bag, and only one bag is allowed per carry-on (aka, the 3-1-1 rule).
6. Figure out if you really need what you’re about to pack.
If you haven’t used the item the last 10 times you packed it, you probably won’t need it this time.
7. Become the light packer you desire to be in just five simple steps.
Pick a few staple pieces and ones that are easy to dress up or down, and you’re good to go.
8. Use this ~pretty~ packing pyramid to avoid over packing for shorter trips.
9. Fit 30 days’ worth of items into just one carry-on and a backpack.
Pack clothing that can easily be layered. And, instead of packing books that’ll take up space, use your phone or tablet to read from online sources.
10. Master these space-saving tricks and folds.
11. Try your hand at this method for wrapping a clothing bundle.
12. Distribute the weight in your suitcase like a pro.
Heavier items like shoes should go along the walls of the suitcase, while lighter items like makeup bags and toiletries should be placed on top.
13. And don’t forget about the weight in your backpack.
Items you’ll need at night should be at the very bottom of your backpack, but light clothing items should go toward the top.
14. Be prepared when you travel with a pet.
Keep an ID tag on your pet with your contact information in case your pet gets lost.
15. Pick the correct plug adapter for overseas travel.
16. Make sure you know exactly what you can’t take on a plane.
Do your homework on items that aren’t allowed on the plane for a smooth security screening.
17. And polish it off with this list of do’s and don’ts.
Remember to pack essentials like medication — just because you’re traveling doesn’t mean you stop taking care of yourself!
