I love my travel organizers and I can’t imagine travelling without them.
Getting organized for a trip can be stressful, especially when you are trying to pack your stuff in a backpack or a small cabin case (and pack your partner’s things due to his laziness!).
Over the years of travelling, little by little I’m getting crafty on how to organize my things to my advantage by using various travel organizers and travel accessories.
My favourite travel organizers are:

The Packing Cubes
What are Packing cubes?
Packing cubes are travel organizers that are available in various colours and sizes depending on your needs and preferences.
Some packing cubes come in a set with an additional laundry bag or shoe bags if you look for packing cubes deals online.
Are packing cubes worth it?
YES! Packing cubes are so worth it.
This will be your new best friend when it comes to sorting out your things when travelling.
Based on my experience, the main benefit of using packing cubes are the organized division of your things, it makes everything neat and tidy inside your backpack or luggage.
They are especially useful during airport inspections, it makes the process easier for me as I unpack my things from my backpack or cabin luggage.
Do packing cubes really save space?
Yes, again! I can’t probably stress enough the benefit of using packing cubes as one of your main travel organizers.
Packing cubes are great for saving space especially if you are only using a backpack for your trip.
The Travel Vacuum sacks and travel cube compressors are also efficient in saving space and also a great travel organizer.
How many packing cubes do I need?
This depends on how long your trip is and how much stuff you will be taking with you.
As for an example for a week trip, you can squeeze in a 7-days worth of clothing in one Large packing cube and use the small packing cube for the other bits and bobs that you might need to take with you.
