Packages for a vacation can be hard work, especially if you're trying to avoid the dreaded scenario "just in case".
And although a suitcase full of options may make sense, you probably packed too much and may have forgotten to take what you need.
To avoid this problem, there is a set of rules, as revealed by Escape, which you can follow to ensure easy packaging and well-organized baggage.
From how to apply the 3: 1 rule to get the most out of your wardrobe to why a mix of packaging styles works, FEMAIL takes a look at these tips to change the game.
It can be so tempting to pack a suitcase to the brim when it is packed to go on vacation, to avoid the dreaded scenario "just in case" (stock image)
1. Always start with a list
Before you even take out your suitcase, start with a list of items you think you need for your vacation.
This list should give you an idea of how much you will need to take in terms of basic items (underwear, bras, socks and socks).
Then, look at your itinerary to see what you need to pack that corresponds to your activities.
In this way, you can see if you need to include a swimsuit, formal clothes or other equipment related to what you may have planned.
Shoes and toiletries can be added to this list as well.
2. Apply the 3: 1 ratio when packing
This relationship involves taking three tapas in each fund.
This is because T-shirts, blouses, and lightweight fabrics take up much less space than jeans, skirts, and pants.
And there is the additional advantage that funds can be used more than once.
Color is also an important component of this formula. Make sure that an upper part is neutral: black, white or light brown and include two additional colors that coordinate and add a new touch.

3. Think layers instead of bulk
If you travel to a colder destination, you can make your packing space work harder for you by taking less bulky items.
Instead, add shirts, t-shirts, thermals or extra knit jackets and make a cape with these.
You can pack a jacket or a knit sweater, but this way you can limit this to what you need.
This not only saves the room from the suitcase, but also offers some more wardrobe options.
4. The rule when packing shoes
While you may want to pack all your favorite footwear, according to packaging professionals, you only need three pairs, in total.
These are a pair of runners, floors (or sandals) and heels.
Word to the wise: pack a pair of thongs for the shower.
5. Do not pack anything until you have eliminated one third
The idea is to take a look at everything you plan to take first, then pack.
But to maximize space, everything has to be eliminated by a third party.
This means that you may have to decide if it is possible to wear a shirt more than once or how important it is to pack that extra attire.

6. Use a mixture of packaging styles
When packing, make sure you have created a solid foundation. Wear shoes to do this and, if possible, pack the items inside these.
Next, it may be better to use a combination of packaging styles to maximize space. This means both rolling and folding elements.
Clothing that can be rolled includes T-shirts, T-shirts, underwear, socks and stockings.
Rolling command is a lesson in the efficiency of packaging. Roll your underwear, your shirt and your shorts and then slip into the socks for a complete outfit ready every day, "said Escape.
Clothing that is more bulky takes less space if folded packed. These include jeans, jackets and shirts that should remain as wrinkle-free as possible.
7. Use of compression bags
Another packing tip, courtesy of the Australian organization expert, and Mise en Place founder, Anita Birges, is to use compression storage bags.
The bags are ideal for rolled items, and once full the air can simply be squeezed.
He told Daily Mail Australia that he wears a large one for clothes and a medium one for shoes. The bags are also useful as laundry bags.
8. Toiletries, hair dryers and accessories
If you are staying in a hotel, it is not necessary to pack a hair dryer and you may have some cosmetics on hand for your use.
However, if you want to bring a product with you, an easy way to do this is to decant what you need in smaller bottles. Or accumulate samples before your trip.
And finally, make sure that the cosmetics you take are packed in a waterproof bag, so you can avoid unnecessary spills.
