Repurpose old pencil cases. Keep cords tangle-free by storing chargers and adaptors in an old pencil or cosmetics case. Find similar items at National Bookstore.
Use drawstring bags. Drawstring bags are great for separating things in your luggage. They’re flexible, too so they don’t waste any space!
Make a list. For a quick and stress-free packing, make a list of things you plan to bring. Stick the list on your luggage so you won’t lose it.
Leave a list of contact numbers to a family member or a friend. Leave pertinent information about your trip—where you’re staying, phone numbers, email address—so that you can easily be reached in case of an emergency.
Pack light. Decant toiletries into smaller bottles so you won’t be lugging unnecessary bulk and weight.
Bring a travel wallet. Here's a Real Tip! Don't forget to bring a travel wallet where your passport fits with your money so you'll be sure to have your documents with you at all times.
