What Is A Packing Cube And Why Do You Need One?

0 Shares

If you’d like to spend less time looking through your suitcase for clothes, and more time enjoying your vacation, then packing cubes may be for you. 

Packing cubes are containers with zip closures that fit inside of your luggage to keep your items organized. 

They come in various sizes and shapes. Think of them like little drawers in your suitcase. 

So, why do you need packing cubes? Read on to find out. 

Save Space 

Instead of paying extra for more luggage, use packing cubes to save space. Since they compress your contents, you can often squeeze a good amount of clothes into one cube. 

Save Time

If you separate your items by category or by day, you’ll only have to open one packing cube at a time instead of looking through your entire suitcase. This can save a great deal of time, so you can enjoy your trip even more.

Separate Dirty Laundry 

After walking around a new city all day, your clothes are bound to smell a bit funky. Instead of mixing them in with your clean clothes, you can separate them with a packing cube. 

Minimize Wrinkles

Since packing cubes compress your items, they prevent items from shifting around. This leads to fewer wrinkles, which is convenient when you’re on a trip and don’t have access to an iron. Some packing cubes even come with a folding board so you can stack your clothes neatly.

Protect Your Clothes 

We often pack liquid toiletries in our suitcases, since there are restrictions for carry-on baggage. This increases the risk that something will spill on your clothing. But, with waterproof packing cubes, you don’t have to worry. They’ll protect your clothes from spills and you can even store your wet swimsuits in them.

Pack And Unpack In A Breeze 

There are two kinds of people: those who love to pack and those who dread packing. Either way, packing cubes are for you. If you love to pack, you’ll love how organized they can make your suitcase. And if you dread packing, you’ll love how easy they are to use.
