7 Tips for Stress-Free Packing This Holiday Season

For many individuals, packing is the only unenjoyable part of a holiday vacation. To make it less challenging, try these helpful packing tips. When it’s time to head to the airport, choose the most reliable transportation service in Boca Raton. At M&M Limo & Airport Service, we have a fleet of vehicles that service Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International, Palm Beach International, and Miami International Airports. We’ll get you where you need to be safely and on time.

Make a List

All the best packers will tell you that making a list is the surest way to make packing a breeze. More importantly, if you make your list one week or a few days before your trip, you better guarantee that you don’t forget anything you need. Keep track of what you have already packed by crossing items off your list as you go along. When you have packed everything on your list, make sure to double-check it! Yes, you are channeling your inner Santa Claus by making a list and checking it twice.

Pack in Advance

In addition to making a list and checking it twice, it’s a good idea to pack a few days in advance. This comes in handy for several important reasons. For example, if you packed too much in your carry-on, you can make adjustments more easily and without being overwhelmed by it at the last minute. 

Pack Accordingly

Pack according to your destination. The most important thing to do is check the forecast of your destination the day before your flight. Avoid making assumptions. Remember that temperature changes according to the time of day, so don’t pack too much of one item. Additionally, we recommend packing for both indoor and outdoor activities.

Buy Packing Cubes

If you have limited packing space or want extra room to bring back souvenirs, consider buying packing cubes. These are individually sized polyester or nylon bags to organize your items and create more space in your suitcase. Once properly organized, it can also make packing and unpacking quicker and easier. If you don’t want to spend the money or think packing cubes are overrated, alternatively, you can roll your items up tightly, such as your clothing, before packing them into your luggage.

Pack Electronics Properly

When we say “properly,” we don’t just mean to avoid damage, although that is also important (make sure all your electronics are properly padded and packed in the center of your luggage). Determine what electronics to take and which should go in your carry-on luggage to stay close. Generally, electronics to be stored in your carry-on luggage include cameras, cellphones, smart devices, and your laptop. What else? Make that determination so everything you need can easily be accessed when you need it.

Don’t Sacrifice Comfort

Traveling is stressful on its own, why make it more stressful by being uncomfortable? No matter how short your flight, pack for comfort. We recommend:

  • Bringing a neck pillow, eye mask, and earplugs to sleep
  • Wearing comfortable attire (i.e., sweats, sneakers, compression socks)
  • Bringing a light sweater in case you get chilly
  • Taking healthy snacks if you’re on a domestic flight

Of course, make sure all these items are packed in your carry-on luggage.

Leave a Little Wiggle Room

In addition to leaving extra room for souvenirs, it’s also important to leave extra room in all your luggage to avoid paying additional fees. For example, most airlines charge extra if your checked luggage weighs more than 50 pounds. If your carry-on luggage is too big to be stowed in the overhead bin, you may need to check it. To avoid extra expenses and hassle, don’t pack your luggage to the point where it’s bursting at the seams. If it is bursting, take time to determine what you can do without – this is another reason why you should pack at least a few days before your flight and definitely not overnight!
