When I was a kid, I loved packing because it meant we were about to travel somewhere. I also loved flying. How times have changed… Now flying is plain agony for me and packing is a chore. Journey schmourney. Sometimes the joy is in the destination and the best we can do is survive the journey and arrive with everything we need, neatly packed in an efficient and organized fashion.
So, without further ado, I present my favorite packing accessories fromTravelSmith, three tools that make packing fun, almost.
Shelves to Go
This is brilliant – a hanging shelf unit that collapses into your suitcase. Hang it in your closet, pack the shelves, put it in your bag. The shelves keep their contents contained and organized. At your destination, lift the shelves out of your bag and hang them in the closet. Your clothes are out where you can see them and access them easily, without having to unpack.
These not only organize your bag but keep clothes neatly folded and wrinkled free. They come with a folding board, very helpful.
Compress a 5″ stack of clothes to 1″ with magic zippers. You can take five-times more clothes!
