Creative Packing Tips for an Extended Stay

Let’s take packing for an extended trip to the next level without breaking the bank or buying anything new.

  1. Roll clothes. Save room in your suitcase and avoid extra wrinkles by rolling your clothes instead of folding them.
  2. Separate your shoes. Putting shoes in your suitcase where they will touch your clean clothes and other belongings is unsanitary. When packing your shoes for an extended stay, put each pair in a shower cap or grocery bag so your shoes don’t touch the rest of your things.
  3. Bag and label outfits. This tip is a lifesaver, especially if you have little ones you’re traveling with. Separate each outfit in resealable bags to make mornings easy. Go the extra mile and label the bags by day to make getting ready in the morning seamless.
  4. Pack spices. Nothing will make you feel at home quite like an in-suite kitchen where you can cook homemade meals during your extended stay. We suggest bringing essential spices with you to make your meals that much better.
  5. Prevent necklace tangles. Jewelry helps complete any outfit, but packing jewelry can often lead to knots in necklaces. Avoid the headache and prevent tangling by stringing each necklace through a straw when possible.
  6. Use binder clips for razor heads. Avoid any safety hazards or clothing mishaps by protecting your razor heads during travel. If you don’t have a portable razor head cover, a binder clip works just as well.

Although there are a lot of items you can purchase to help pack for an extended trip, there are a lot of things you can find in your everyday life to use instead. Save money and get creative when packing for your extended stay with these packing tips!
