Have you ever had to sit on your suitcase to close it? No? Just me? Well, if you’ve been in the same boat, may I introduce you to my new best friend the packing cube. There is a different cube for every occasion – from organization by article of clothing and compression cubes, to tech and laundry cubes, you can find one to suit every whim. They organize your life, your clothing and compress everything you're packing so you can close that suitcase with one quick zip. Fun fact: you can even use packing cubes as a pillow (no really, I’ve done so when stranded at an airport). To make it easier on you I've rounded up my favorite packing cubes on the world wide web...enjoy!
Eagle Creek Pack-It Specter – My go to travel/luggage brand for sturdy and reliable products. This set includes a small, medium and large cube. The large and medium will perfectly store your clothes, shoes, jackets, etc. The small one can be used to hold socks and that pair of gym clothes you bring on EVERY trip and swear you will wear to the gym one day.
BEIS The Packing Cube Set - I love, love, love BEIS. This brand by Shay Mitchell has the chicest and reasonably priced travel gear (more on that in a future article). Their packing cube set comes with six different sizes, including two drawstring bags that are perfect for lingerie or shoes. These cubes also contain small ID windows with paper labels so you know where everything is stored at a moments notice.
AWAY The Insider Packing Cubes – I love my AWAY carry-on, it fits SO much of my "necessary" stuff. Therefore, I trust that their cubes accommodate just as much. Their cubes are made from “water-resistant nylon that protects your clothes and designed with a mesh panel that makes it easy to find what you need without unpacking your whole bag”.
AmazonBasics Packing Cubes - These are the best for any budget. Coming in at under $20 they are a steal and worth the investment if you want to dip your toes in the world of packing cubes. This set comes with a small, medium, large and slim cube. The slim cube is the perfect compartment for all of your adapters, cords and tech gadgets and they come in a variety of colors to suit your color coordinating needs.
