I enjoy travelling but I hate to pack and unpack. However, I’ve found something that makes the whole process a little easier. I love the Eagle Creek Pack-It system.
There are a number of different products in this system but my favourites are the folders and cubes.
I usually bring two folders on my travels; one for my tops and shorts and another for dresses, skirts and pants. I fold my clothes around the plastic board, so that the clothing is evenly stacked inside the folder, then when I need to take something out, I just slide the board into the stack above the top (or bottoms) I want to wear, and lift up. Your clothing and travel gear remain neatly folded and organized.
I find the cubes handy for my underwear, socks, bathing suits and accessories.
There are other brands available and space systems, but the affordable Pack-It system is my personal favourite.
The best part about using this type of system is that even if your suitcase falls apart, all its contents stay together.
Eagle Creek products can be found in many stores where luggage is sold. For supplier locations and more information, check out Eagle Creek's Web Site.
