Suitcase Packing Tips

Make and check your packing list • Make a check list of everything you packed so you don’t lose or forget anything


Roll, don’t fold
• This helps prevent your clothes from getting wrinkled and it also saves space in your suitcase


Use fresh, clean shoes as packing cubes
• Save space by putting small items like socks, underwear, cords, costume jewellery, etc. in them


Ziploc bags and elastics are your friends!
• Use these for anything: packing and separating liquids, dirty clothes, water proofing, separating clothes or souvenirs
• Hold cords and clothing together with elastic
• Elastic hair ties are great to use since they double as hair elastics


Put a shower cap over your shoes
• It prevents other things in your suitcase from getting dirty


Put heavier items like shoes near suitcase wheels
• This keeps it level so it will not topple over


Leave plenty of empty space in your suitcase
• You’ll need it for souvenirs!


Packing cubes or compression bags
• Help you stay organized
• Save space
• Waterproof
*Note: Collette provides you with one when you upgrade to elite!


Bring an around the world adapter
• It saves money over time and can be used anywhere


Put dryer sheets in between your clothes
• They keep your things smelling fresh and help prevent wrinkles
