Crowded airports, busy security lines and long-distance car rides can make holiday travel super stressful. Packing for your family shouldn’t add to your stress. Thankfully, the TravelWise Packing Cube System can greatly minimize the hassles of packing for each family member. The cubes act as small containers that hold clothes neatly within their own compartments. The mesh panel allows you to see exactly what is inside each cube, so you don’t have to dig for that favorite toy or blanket while waiting in the TSA line or searching through suitcases at rest stops.
Here are 10 reasons why every family needs packing cubes for holiday travel:
Clothes stay neat
No matter how well you fold and pack your clothes, they will inevitably shift during transit. Packing cubes minimize shifting and wrinkling, so you won’t waste time ironing wrinkles out of your holiday clothes.
Designate one cube for gifts
Wondering where exactly you put that necklace you bought for your sister or the tie you bought Dad? Putting holiday gifts in one cube keeps everything contained in one place.
Organize family members
Assign each person his or her own colored cubes. It makes sharing luggage and dressers much easier when you know whose pack is whose just by the color.
Keep technology in one place
Chargers for phones, tablets, and cameras can be kept in one small cube. No more randomly tossing them in the suitcase and frantically searching for one in the airport.
No more exploding suitcases
Don’t you hate it when you open your suitcase to look for a charger and then your entire wardrobe tumbles out, leaving your underwear visible for all to see? Packing cubes prevent items from exploding out of your suitcase, even during TSA checks.
Minimize luggage used
Packing cubes let you pack more efficiently and utilize all interior luggage space. Minimizing wasted space can reduce the amount of luggage needed.
Organization at your destination
Whether you’re staying with family or at a hotel, dresser space can be limited. Place cubes in a closet or on a flat surface and use it as a drawer for the duration of your stay.
Eliminate the need to unpack
There’s no need to remove items from your packing cube. Simply unzip the cube, place it in a drawer and take out what you need.
The cubes can be used to hold a wide variety of items and fit in an assortment of bags. Toss one with a change of clothes in your tote bag or knapsack. Use one or two medium sized ones in your carry-on luggage for non-clothing items such as easy to eat snacks, an easy to grab diaper bag or entertainment for the kids.
Corral dirty clothes
There is no need to mix dirty clothes in with clean items. Reserve specific cubes for dirty clothes on the return trip home.
