Do you have your VIP bags open and ready in front of you to start packing? Okay then, let’s get started.
- Start by counting the number of things to take
The first step is to streamline the wardrobe, and there’s a simple trick to help you do that. If you are packing your VIP bags India for a week, you should keep in mind the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 rule.
So, you should take one hat, two pairs of footwear, three bottoms, four tops, and five sets of underwear and socks. Of course, you can add exercise gears, swimsuits, or suit jackets, if you feel you will need them.
- Layout all the things and start editing out
It is difficult to eliminate the clutter from your bag mentally. You will have to lay out all the things that you feel you will need, and then start the process of elimination.
It is a good idea to completely get rid of the things that you are taking on a ‘just-in-case’ basis. Most of those can be bought at your destination, in case you need them. So, there is no need to pack more things than necessary.
- Tetris is the way to go for efficient packing
You will need to fill up every inch of your bag if you are trying to fit all your things in one bag. For instance, stash the socks inside the shoes to save space, and roll up your clothes for the same reason. Rolling your clothes will also help keep those pesky wrinkles at bay.
You can also pack in a way that keeps the tees and underwear at the centre, and the dresses and blazers on the outer part, so that it is easier for you to find it all.
- Keeping the toiletries packed in separate boxes
Just because you should not waste space in the bag does not mean that you will stash toothpaste and lotions between the clothes. Have a small clear bag where you can keep all your toiletries. It will be easier for you to find them when you are unpacking after reaching your hotel, and at the time of coming back, all the things can be retrieved quicker.
You have surely got your VIP bags online and started packing by now. Hopefully, these tips will come in handy when you are trying to pack more efficiently than before.
