Tips on packing light.

Rolling clothes tightly saves on space and also can prevent wrinkles

For frequent flyers, particularly business passengers, traveling light becomes a vital part of making a trip stress free and possibly even faster through the check points.

o The first thing ever to do when packing is to lay everything out on the floor from a written list and then take away half of the items laid out.Realising half the items are not needed becomes a great help to packing light.
o Investing in anti-wrinkle clothes is never wasted.
o Rolling clothes tightly saves on space and also can prevent excessive creasing.
o Choose dark and neutral colours in clothes as there is less chance of dirt showing up and can be used more often. It is also easier to mix and match darker with neutral colours to give the illusion of different outfits.

Getting maximum wear from each garment is the key.

o For men , it is a good idea to wear the suit or jacket to travel with rather than pack it, women can wear bulkier items on the plane.
o Shoes are bulky items. Choose ones that can be used for any event and choose to wear them on the flight. If carrying an extra pair is really necessary then use inside the shoes for smaller items like deodorants spray cans or socks etc
o Purchase travel size toiletries. If staying at a hotel, hotels do provide quite a bit of toiletries, so that would be some more items not necessary to take.
o If traveling with an airline that allows carry on luggage as well as a shoulder bag, spread some the items between both bags.
o Take a waterproof bag so as to keep clean items away from the dirty ones.
o Packing cubes or compression bags can help to save space and can help to organise items and are quite handy. The downside to this is that some airlines do weight carry on bags, so using space savers would not cut down on weight.
