Why A Luggage Organiser Set Is Essential
Shoving everything into your bag or suitcase seems like the quickest way to pack, but it can become incredibly time consuming when you actually need to find things. If you’re travelling for a longer period of time and you want to keep your items organised so you can actually find what you’re looking for it is essential that you buy a luggage organiser set for simplicity and peace of mind.
Internal and External Compartments
Many suitcases come with internal compartments which you can use to separate your items and find things more easily. Some of these compartments may be made out of a mesh material to make it easier for you to find what you are looking for. You may find it helpful to buy luggage that comes with several internal and external compartments so you can take more items with you and separate things easily.
Some suitcases come with straps that you can use to push your items down to stop them moving around when you are travelling. This also helps push the items down so you can fit more in your luggage.
Types of packing organisers
Many luggage organisers like packing cubes and compression sacs can also free up space in your bag so you can make the most of all available space. These organisers will help you separate your clothes from other luggage to keep them getting wrinkled or dirty, you can organise your clothes so you can get ready quickly, and the luggage organisers will keep your toiletries separate from your other items to avoid spillage.
There are loads of different packing organisers available, so here is a breakdown of what they all do and what they can be used for.
Packing cubes are zipped bags that you can use to organise your luggage. They come in a range of sizes and fabrics, but most are made out of lightweight materials like nylon and may feature see through mesh material so you know what the contents of the bag is without having to open it.
Packing cubes help you save as much space as possible because they compress your items, even big things like coats, and cut down on the amount of space these items take up. They are also great for storing similar items together so you can find everything you need in one go.
Packing folders are a good choice for clothes that you don’t want to get wrinkled or dirty in the suitcase. Packing folders keep the clothes compressed to stop them rolling around and getting wrinkly, and they help compress the clothes to take up less space.
Packing folders normally hold between 12-15 large clothes in one bag and come in a variety of sizes.
Compression sacks are a good choice for bulky items like tents, sleeping bags and camping gear. Compression sacks are commonly used for sleeping bags, but they also work for other large items so you can carry them around with you with minimal effort.
Compression sacks are a good choice for hikers and backpackers because they can often be attached to the top of a backpack.
Vacuum Sealer Bags/Space Bags
Vacuum bags allow you to deflate excess air from within the bag to save as much space as possible, which can be a life saver when you’re trying to shove too many items into your suitcase. Some vacuum sealer bags require you to use an actual vacuum to remove the air, but many come with hand pumps which you can use instead when you don’t have access to a vacuum (i.e. if you’re travelling). Vacuum bags come in various sizes and can be used to store clothes, food and other items
The see-through bags that you pick up at the airport to store your liquids are actually really handy for every day travelling. They are see through so you know exactly what is in them, they are cheap, they keep your items together and they are particularly handy for making sure smaller items do not get lost. You can also use these bags to store dirty underwear, toiletries and food.
Travelling can be stressful at the best of times, so there’s no need to make it more stressful for yourself. Luggage organisers tend to be cheap, they won’t take long to pack, and they could save you a lot of time later on!
