(fingers snapping) (beatboxing music) – I’m leaving on a trip
tomorrow, and I need to pack. I always leave it to the last minute, because I got it down to a ‘T’ and because of the travel
hacks that I’ve learned over the years, made up over
the years of many travels and I wanna share them with you guys. So, let’s get packing. Roll your clothes instead of folding them. It actually saves you space
when you roll your clothes all together instead of folding them and putting them on top of each other. Mark your suitcases
‘Fragile’ even if it is not, because the people who are
handling your suitcase, they won’t know that it’s not fragile, but they’ll see the
sticker that says it is, and hopefully, hopefully be more careful. Putting jewelry in pill
containers is awesome. It keeps them organized and it keeps you from losing jewelry. I tend to lose earrings all
the time, just one though, always, one goes missing. But when you have a pill container, doesn’t happen as often. Still happens sometimes to me, but. Sunglass cases aren’t
just great for sunglasses. They’re awesome for headphones and cables. If you’re worried about
packing gels and liquids, instead of buying the liquid
shampoo and conditioner, get bar shampoo and conditioner. I absolutely am obsessed
with a company called Rocky Mountain Soap Co,
they’re from Alberta, they make incredible, natural products. There’s also Lesh, I also
enjoy their shampoo bars and conditioner. Fold your soap in a wash cloth. It is less gucky than
keeping it in one of those plastic containers or a ziplock bag. Frozen sponges is a great way to keep your
snacks for the plane cold and get through security
with flying colors. Bring an oven mitt for your curling iron or your straightener for the mornings that you have to pack up
and leave super early. Hair conditioner can be
used for other things than your hair. It can be used a shoe polish. It can be used as makeup remover. It can be used as shaving cream. If you wear bras, which,
I typically don’t. If I do, it’s like these
cloth things, I hate bras. But if you do wear bras, stack
’em on top of each other. It saves space. When you’re packing your suitcase, put all the heavy items near
the wheels of the suitcase, so that when you zip it
up and put it upright, the heavy items aren’t gonna
fall and crush other things. They’re already gonna be on
the lower end of your suitcase. Anything that you have that is breakable or is gonna explode,
hairspray, shampoo bottles, put them in socks. That way if they do explode, they’ve exploded in your socks. I always like to bring
a pillowcase with me, especially if I’m staying in hostels, and I just want my own pillowcase. It’s also great for laundry. If you decide that you’re
gonna check your bag, make sure that you bring your toiletries, any breakables, anything
that’s super valuable, and a change of clothes in a carry-on bag that you’re gonna bring
with you on the plane. That way if your luggage does go missing, you still have your valuables with you and a change of clothes
which is always nice. If you’re going to a colder destination, wear as many items of clothing
as possible for the flight. I’m talkin’ like, layer
it up, layer it up. Wear your big, bulky jacket. Wear your big boots. Wear two sweatshirts, a
tee-shirt, a long-sleeve, you can always take it off
when you’re on the plane, so you’re not gonna like,
feel like you’re in a sauna the whole flight. Sarongs are multi-purpose. You can use ’em for so many things. You can use it to cover up at religious monuments or
temples or churches. You can use it as a blanket for if you’re on an overnight
bus and it’s a little cold. You can use it as a beach towel. You can use it as a pillowcase. You can use it as a fashion accessory. The list goes on. Which leads me to bring
versatile clothing. Use clothing that is reversible. Use clothing that can be made
into a few different outfit. There’s a company called Encircled, I’ll leave a link in the
description box below. And they make clothing
specifically for travelers. I have a couple items of their clothing. This one shirt I have can be
worn eight different ways. There’s like all these
buttons you can play with to change up the look of the shirt. Another brand which I love,
it’s one of my favorite stores, it’s called Faraday, and they make a lot of reversible clothing. I’m actually wearing a dress right now. This one’s not reversible,
but it’s super light and really easy to pack. Packing cubes. Enough said, life-changing, seriously. Fold cables properly. I get in trouble all the time for this because I’ve tended, in the past, and by past I mean probably
the last trip I took (laughs) to just stuff cables in a bag, but if you actually wrap them up properly, then they take up a lot less room and you don’t wreck them
and have to buy another one. And to limit the amount of
cables you are bringing with you, see how many of your electronics actually take the same cable. You might be surprised. I have tended to, in the past, just clump all my necklaces together and then I spend hours
trying to untangle them. If you take your necklaces and
string them through a straw, it keeps them nice and
untangled, super-clean. It just makes life a lot easier. To keep your clothing and
anything else in your suitcase from getting dirty, put
the soles of your shoes in a shower cap. I’m gonna let you in
a dirty little secret. Sephora, love it there. One of the main reasons is free samples. You can go into Sephora
and ask for samples of pretty much anything to try out. I’m talkin’ like a month worth
of foundation in one sample. The samples are always
under 100 milliliters, which means you can take it
in your carry-on on the plane. Go tubes, fantastic. They are great if you
just wanna pack a carry-on to squeeze in some shampoo,
squeeze in some conditioner, some sunscreen. They’re all under 100 milliliters, so you’re not gonna have
a problem in security and you can get out every
last drop of that shampoo. Another way to prevent
your liquids or your gels from busting all over your bag. Sounded very sexual. Unscrew the lids of each product, put some Saran Wrap over the bottle, and then screw the lid back on. If it bursts, it ain’t goin’ nowhere. Cotton swabs, great for many things, especially for cleaning
those ears of yours. If you have an old medicine
bottle, stuff ’em in there. It’s a great way to keep them clean, keep them organized, and save space. If you’re going international, and you have a lot of
electronics with you, bring an adapter of course,
but also bring a powerbar. That way, you can plug six different items into your powerbar, and
only have to bring the one international adapter. (big sigh) And that was a lot of
packing hacks (laughs). But I hope you found them super helpful. I hope they make your packing experience way easier, way more
efficient, and less stressful for your next trip. If there’s a packing
hack that you guys have, that you use that I haven’t
mentioned in this video, I really wanna hear from you. I’m sure we all do, so
leave a comment below and share those with us. I would also love to
know where you’re packing your suitcase to go to next. And what are your 2018 travel plans? Have you made them yet? Are you kind of like in the
middle of planning them? Whatever it is, share with
us, let’s inspire each other. Alright, travel tribe,
if you have suggestions for an upcoming video,
share with us because I wanna turn them into a video. I love your suggestions. And please, like, be extra creative. Let’s make some like, new videos that aren’t already on the YouTube. Something different,

break, it’s gettin’ hot. Ahh, yeah, some soda water. Alright back in action.

    I put qtips in orange prescription bottles, bobby pins and nail clippers as well, to keep them organized. GoTubb makes these little pill containers that click shut and can also hold jewelry. I use them for face wash and face moisturizer, so I don't have to bring the entire bottle of my preferred items. Plastic grocery bags are always good to have on hand and if i'm packing hiking boots I stuff them with socks or fragile items wrapped in socks.

    These are pretty great! I'd update the power strip to a charging station. I got one on Amazon for $20 and it charges 6 USB devices at the same time. Cuts out the "middle man" that is the charging base of most electronics. 🙂

    I'm looking up those clothing companies now! Thanks!

    tips for over packers (like me):
    some backstory: I go to the Mediterranean every year for 1 month. (I am from the states so it is quite different from where I live) anywho…

    1: my sister just so happens to be vegan, and because it is hard to find some food there, she brings it. Because she overpacks like me, she goes over the 50 lbs (23kgs) limit, (we weigh our cases before-hand) she moves everything she can into her carry-on to reduce the weight of her case. (grains, any types of powders, and t-shirts)

    2: If you can, buy a suitcase that can be expanded and/or does not have a hard shell.

    3: For longer trips, find a store to buy larger bottles of shampoo/conditioner/body wash at your destination. This will save space.

    4: Use compression bags. Link to some: https://www.amazon.com/Chestnut-Travel-Space-Saver-Bags/dp/B01GEP4JGA/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_201_t_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=GZA89GF63EF0W7XWQ402

    About 10 years ago, I went to Turkey. With just a small backpack (20 liters). In it, I packed just two short sleeved t-shirts, 2 pairs of socks, 2 pieces of underpants and a packable thin windbreaker, swimsuit, a small towel, plus a thin scarf, a small bottle of 3 in 1 (shampoo, conditioner and shower gel – all in that one small bottle), a small deodorant, a retractable hairbrush with a small mirror, sunscreen, a menstrual cup, a small wallet, passport – and I think that was it. The number of pieces of clothes was perfectly sufficient. Even more than I needed (I mean – I didn't use socks at all as it was really really hot). All of the items fit perfectly in my small backpack and there was even enough room for a water bottle and some room was empty! It was a hiking trip with my husband and I just washed the pieces of clothes that I wore that day in a hotel sink every evening. And since it was so hot there, everything was dry the next morning. It was a great trip, we toured half of Turkey by hitchhiking and staying in a different place every night. Traveling light was a good idea.

    If you’re putting shoes in your luggage, fill up the space inside so you don’t waste it. Throw in socks in one shoe and undies in another. And if you think the inside of your shoes are too dirty to do that, get a plastic grocery bag and throw your stuff in. It’ll cover your clothes so they don’t touch the shoes

    Love how you get right to the tips and don’t waste time with gobbledygook talk. I suggest taking in the carryon a dark colored bandana or cotton scarf to fold and use as a sleep mask for long flights or in case the roomates like to stay up late and the glow from their electronics would disturb your ZZZZZZ’s. Don’t know how much an actual sleep mask costs but Bandanas are cheap – like a dollar or less so you could buy several and pack some in your checked bag and keep one with you in your carry-on.

    put cables into flat bags as they take up FAR less room and are lighter in weight, pill containers also take up too much weight and volume so put them between two sheets of cling film and roll into a clear pencil case or ziplock bag. You are not allowed to bring fruit to certain countries and why would you put a frozen sponge next to fresh fruit??? oven gloves are too big so use the correct cover for the hair tools , why bring a MASSIVE BOOK when you are trying to pack light LOL
