A great trip doesn’t begin at the airport or when you get to your destination

Going on a trip? It would be best if you make it a trip without any mistakes.

A great trip doesn’t begin at the airport or when you get to your destination. It starts even when you are still at home. The first step in making your trip – business or leisure – memorable is by packing your thing the right way. Believe me; a wrongly packed suitcase can remove all the fun from a trip.

However, some people do not even know when they are making mistakes while packing for their trips. Yes, some of these mistakes are so common that most people do not even know that they are mistakes. Anyways, to help clear up any confusion on the mistake you are making, here are the top 5 common mistakes made when packing for a trip:

  1. Packing on the morning of your trip

Last-minute packing is usually not very smart packing. If you do this, I assure you that you will definitely leave something behind albeit unwillingly. In plain English – you go forget something for house, that one na normal.

  1. Not planning what to wear

You should always take out time to decide on what to wear during your trip. Don’t just pack anyhow or just pack the closest things your hand can reach, make sure it’s detailed.

  1. Not sealing your toiletries

How will you feel if on getting to your destination and seeing that your lotion as burst open and spilled its contents on all your clothes? Bad right? Well, you can avoid stories like that by making sure that all your toiletries are locked in a SEALED BAG when packing for the trip.

  1. Folding Everything

Yes, this is a mistake. Folding all the clothes you are travelling with can make them become wrinkled and it will also take up a lot of space in the travel bag. Instead, you should roll those clothes and pack them in smaller packing cubes first. This will help you create even more suitcase space to cater for your other needs.

  1. Filling their suitcases to the brim

Yeah, this is also a wrong practice. You should always leave space fin your suitcase, just for the sake of souvenirs!
