Hand Luggage Packing Tips
Vlogger Brooke from World of Wanderlust shares her packing tips and how to save money by packing into a cabin bag.
Tips on Packing Your Suitcase
To make the best use of space in your cabin bag you need to pack small. Make sure you don’t over pack and lay everything out first to outfit build so you don’t pack anything unnecessary! - Lay your clothes on the floor and fold in half. Roll the clothing into a sausage shape. This reduces space and keeps them crease free. - Place heavier items at the bottom of the base. - Roll underwear and socks and place in shoes. - Toiletry bags put in the centre of the case so these don’t get squashed or spill. - Electricals roll in a t-shirt or trouser to protect from breaking. - Wear your heaviest items.
