Packing cubesDo you like to stay organized when you travel? Then check out Packing Cubes. They usually come as a set of four in four different sizes: large, medium, small, and smallest. Some business travelers use the smallest cube as a toiletry bag & storage for cables or device accessories, while parents have used the larger cubes to keep their kids’ clothes organized (including separating clean from dirty). The Pro Packing Cubes are lightweight with rip-stop nylon and YKK zippers. Amazon sells a variety of them starting as low as $14.99.

They really came in handy on a recent Hawaiian Airlines flight as all passengers need to weigh each bag at check-in, and if a bag exceeds the 50-pound limit even by two pounds, you’ll get charged. It’s an extra $35 for bags weighing 51-70lbs and an extra $70 for bags 70-100lbs. One of our bags weighed over 50lbs, but fortunately, Natalie packs her suitcase with packing cubes so I just pulled one with her clothes out and carried it onto the plane to save the money.

    I’m not picky about the brand, but I wouldn’t even attempt to pack a suitcase without my packing cube collection!

    It’s nice not to rummage through & mess up one’s suitcase looking for an article. Remember how you carefully packed? Well by the 2nd day everything is disorganized & disheveled without the CUBES!! In fact since I don’t want to disrupt any anything I often put the articles back into their respective cubes after I’m finished with them so any packing there is to do at the end of my trip is negligible!!!

    I’ve been using the Pro Packing Cubes for about three years now. The owner of the company has e-mailed me with BOGO coupons to use and I have purchased more to give as gifts to friends and family. What I like about the packing cubes is that I never have to unpack them. I just placed them in the drawers at the hotel or cruise ship and my clean clothing never have to touch the inside of the drawers. I also have their toiletry cube. It holds enough for two adults and room for more.
