by Susan Hamersky, California Concierge LLC

These clever packing tips and tricks will help you stay organized while traveling and maximize the space in your suitcase.

packing - earrings in buttons1) Keep track of small stud earrings by fastening the setthrough buttonholes before slipping them into your jewelry bag.

packing tips - shoes in shower caps 2) Keep the dirty soles of your shoes away from your clothes by  sticking them inside a shower cap. As a bonus, stuff socks and products that won’t burst inside your shoes if you’re low on packing space.

 

packing tips - contact lens container 3) Instead of packing big, bulky makeup bottles for a quick weekend trip, pour a little bit of the product into a clean contact case for easy travel.

 

 

packing tips - plastic wrap under cap4) When packing toiletries, unscrew the lids and cover each opening with a small piece of plastic wrap and then screw the lids back on. 

 

 

Packing tips - roll clothes in suitcase5) To maximize the space in your suitcase, roll your clothes instead  of folding them. You’ll be surprised by how much more you can fit this way.

California Concierge gives me the freedom to have fun in my down time. I use them for everything from booking tours for my visitors to weekly grocery shopping, errand running and overseeing home repair projects. They even delivered personal items to me from home when I was hospitalized and cleared the refrigerator of items that would spoil before my return. They are life savers.
