You have probably noticed I have had a lot of traveling opportunities just since the beginning of 2014. I started out in Anaheim, CA during the North Carolina snowstorm in February, spent a weekend in March at Universal Studios and Disney World Resort in Orlando. I flew back out to Hollywood, California in April for the premiere of Mom’s Night Out movie. I enjoyed a working weekend getaway with my husband at the KLOVE Fan Awards Weekend as media in Nashville, TN. June had my kids and I driving 5 hours to Richmond, Virginia to visit my sister and her family.
Whew! Are you tired reading all that, or does that sound like a dream? It really is both for me. But what an amazing opportunity it is. For me, its proof of the hard work that I have put into my sites.
I have become a pro at packing quickly and being efficient at navigating through airports, hotels, and being ready to go at a moment’s notice. Packing cubes are part of my secret. We have the TravelWise Packing Cube System – Extra Durable 3 Piece Weekender set.
There are a ton of ways you can use these cubes to keep travel simple.
When it was just me traveling, this made it easy to place items in my carry on and pull out my bathroom supplies clear bag separate from my clothes and panties. When I got to a hotel, I would toss these cubes in one drawer as I usually roomed with other blogger pals. It meant I needed less room but could still easily find my items. Those dainties and sleep wear always fit well in the small cube. I also could put dirty items in one bag to know immediately which bag needed washing at home.
Traveling as a Couple
My clothes take up less space than my husband. He could get his items in the large bag, and I put mine in the smaller one. We fit our sleep and dainty stuff in the smaller one. This left us room for toiletries, and shoes in one bag. It freed up the other carry on bag to be used for our camera and video gear for the event we needed.
Traveling with Kids
We can all agree that traveling with any child can be difficult, but packing for yourself and 3 kiddos can become a nightmare if you are not careful. Packing cubes made my life so simple. We did purchase another set, and use the medium green for my 3 year old son’s clothing. The purple set was divided so that the large held my clothes, the medium held my 7 year old, and the small held the 2 year old. The color system made it easy to grab a bag to dress a child, or have them dress themselves. The loose clothing in my suitcase told me what needed washing, and life was truly simple. You can see how the two smaller items fit easily in my American Tourister carry-on size bag, and I just placed the other two bags on top or below.
After seeing how well these cubes worked with my other travels, we purchased a green set. There are many other color sets to choose from as well. We bought it from this Amazon link, making it $22.95 and eligible for free shipping.
GET ORGANIZED, MINIMIZE STRESS & TRAVEL WISE!
Here are the dimensions.
Small Size (1 pc) 11.5″ x 6.75″ x 3.75″
Medium Size (1 pc) 13.75″ x 9.75″ x 3.75″
Large Size (1 pc) 17.5″ x 12.75″ x 4″
I will definitely be getting another set of these as the kids get bigger for full family trips. It makes travel so much easier. I could picture using one color or multi color cubes to sort what to wear for events. It is easy for airport security, and to keep items contained and not falling all over the floor or losing small items in the suitcase.
Where do you think packing cubes could make your life simpler?
