How to reduce the weight of suitcases for travels - Pack wisely!
Whether you're packing for a weekend city break or a two week beach holiday, you will need to bring a suitcase or suitcases for your journey. Clothes, shoes, accessories, chargers... How can you fit in so many stuff in your bags? Carrying a heavy suitcase during your trip can be so exhausting. Therefore, in this article we will give you some tips on how to reduce the weight of your suitcases.
Here’s how to lighten your suitcases and bags.
1. Make a packing list - Be clear of what you need!
Avoid packing too much. Packing a hair dryer, hair curler and a straightener can easily add 10 pounds to your bag. Why not share these with your trip buddies or family members? Some hotels and hostels are equipped with showering necessities too. More importantly, you can make a list of all the items you plan to take on your trip. Then, review the list and narrow it down to the necessities. Before filling your suitcase, think about your travel plans and pack accordingly.
2. Fill every inch of your suitcase - Pack wisely!
When it comes to packing, make use of every little inch of suitcase space. Roll tops, underwear, socks and other small items and stuff them into your shoes to make sure every possible space is filled. By compressing your clothes, you can conserve a lot of room. To save space and stop creasing, roll your clothes instead of folding them, then place them in vacuum compression bags. To use these bags, put your clothes in, seal the bag, then squeeze the air out. This will leave you with lots more space in your suitcase and will prevent creases.
3. Choose the right gadgets - Portable and Light!
Gadgets are necessary if you are travelling to a foreign country or another continent. Adapters, chargers, charging cables, padlocks and even power strips! These electronics cannot be compressed or vacuumed. Therefore, you need to choose the most portable and user-friendly gadgets. For adapter, choose the All-in-one Universal Adapter that supports multiple power types. For chargers and charging cables, choose the fast charging ones so that you can share with friends and family members. For power strips, you can bring a mini one with USB ports and sockets.
