1. Choose the luggage type and size when packing

Before you start packing for your trip, a lot of factors need to be considered. However, one of the most important factors is the type and size of luggage you will be carrying during your journey.

If you don’t choose the right kind of luggage, it will only cause a lot of unnecessary hassle for your trip (like when you can’t fit into the overhead compartment). In addition, just like choosing clothes for a destination, choosing the right luggage is also important.


The luggage may not hold the most important items for your trip but it is paramount for deciding what clothes to wear and how. If you carry around heavy luggage you can put pressure on your arms and shoulders and also risk straining other parts of your body as well. You have to be prepared to check your luggage in at the airport, so it should be a combination of lightweight luggage with durable construction.

2. Don’t buy new things for the trip

Have you ever bought new clothes for a trip or just because? Wondering if that was a mistake? It actually is!

When you buy new clothes for a trip, you have to carry them around with you. It’s ridiculous because clothes are made to be worn. It makes no sense to make a trip out of the store and back home again just to wear those jeans 5 days later when you’re on vacation in Italy.

Clothing should only be bought if they are needed, not because it’s on sale, looks nice, or is fashionable. Shirts, pants, shoes, and outfits that aren’t used shouldn’t be stored in your closet; they should be stored in your suitcase.


Unless you are going on a really long trip, most trips just require a few changes of clothes and other small items in order to make it through safely. It is important to remember that you don’t always need to purchase expensive clothing or new toiletries in order to feel comfortable. For your basic everyday items, you can find great deals at thrift stores, consignment shops, and potential yard sales.

3. Don’t take things “just in case”

When I was younger, my parents always told me to take things “just in case” when packing for a trip. After I left home, I brought this habit with me as well. However, as I began traveling more: short trips, longer trips, etc., I found that lugging around these “just in case” items wasn’t making much sense.

They added unnecessary weight and bulk to my luggage but didn’t provide any extra utility or value. I have sampled a list of the most important items to consider taking when packing for a trip. This helps me only pack the things that I need most on a trip.

It’s easy to take things “just in case” when you pack for a trip. However, carrying things “just in case” is something I feel we should all avoid doing, because there will always be room for those extras, but there may not be if your bag is packed tightly with only “just in cases.”

4. Keep the important medication in your purse

Keeping important medication in your purse when packing for a trip is always a good idea. Whether you’re staying at a hotel, going to visit your parents, or heading to camp – it’s important to be prepared.

Have you ever arrived at your destination, only to realize you don’t have all of the necessary medications? Those headache tablets would have really come in handy right about now.

Now imagine you’re traveling, and this happens to you in a country without the same access to medications that you can find at home. It would be okay if you had your medicine with you… wouldn’t it?

Allowing yourself more time to pack while making sure that you don’t forget any important medication – sounds good, right? As always, it’s just as important to make sure that every item is packed properly and arrives safely as it is not to forget anything at all!

5. Safety first

On the surface, packing for a trip may seem simple. You grab your bags and all of your clothes, and you’re off, right? Well, it’s not quite as simple as it seems. There are a few options that you can choose from when it comes to packing temperatures, but some can be more dangerous than others. Getting a good bag that is made with quality materials is something you should consider going to a store, especially when the weather is cold or hot. But even after you have the best quality bags and choose the clothing options you think will work best on your upcoming trip, there are still other things that need to be considered.


Many people don’t think about safety when they pack. Travel is filled with countless opportunities for anything to happen, and it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Many people don’t think about safety when they pack. Travel is filled with countless opportunities for anything to happen, and it’s better to be safe than sorry.

If you’re planning a trip, it’s essential to pack important medication. A recent survey revealed that the longer people stayed away from home, the more they struggled to bring their medications with them. 45% of respondents said they had often struggled to take prescribed pills on their travels – or to even have their most needed tablets with them when away for a few days.

Traveling lets you experience enjoying and appreciating what you already have, looking at life as something worth living, and knowing that if your home is in one place and your dreams are in another; it’s time to get up and explore new places, new people, and yourself.
