‘Travel Light!’, this advise is something that most of us get to hear every single time we decide to go on a vacay. But do we ever listen? That’s a big resounding NO. We often pack enough for trips twice as long as our planned vacation and yet we never learn. The next time a trip comes along, we can almost definitely be found packing the entire world yet again. Incorrigible!¬† Even though huge suitcases cause a lot of hassle while traveling to different places or while traveling with kids, we are yet to find anyone who has actually won this game of packing light.
But here’s a travel essential I absolutely endorse. It just makes you look like a minimalist on the outside and hides your little secret stash of extra clothes, shoes, and jewelry like a pro. I am talking about packing cubes
For the uninitiated, packing cubes¬†are zippered fabric organizers that typically come in a rectangular shape. They not only compress your luggage but also make it easier to find stuff in your luggage. Packing cubes are much more durable and unlike a compression bag, you can easily access your luggage in a packing cube. They’re also super useful if you want to keep your unused and used clothes separate through the trip. That’s a heaven-sent for a neat freak like me!

If travel is part of your 2020 resolution, you MUST buy a few packing cubes to make sure you have a smooth trip.
