No-Stress Packing: 5 Tips to Save Space on Your Next Business Trip

When traveling for business, it's essential to pack lightly and efficiently. After all, by packing too little, you run the risk of leaving behind a valuable item. Packing too much can cause unnecessary clutter, which makes living out of a suitcase for a few days or a week an utter mess.

Here are our top five packing tips to help you prepare for your next business trip.

  1. Make a packing list. Minimize the uncertainty of forgetting an item by creating a packing list. A thorough inventory will help you to keep track of what is a necessity and ensures that essentials aren't left behind. A packing list should be written out 1-2 weeks before the trip to ensure you've covered all your basis.
  2. Know your limits. Carry-on dimensions vary depending on the airline carrier. Be sure to confirm with the carrier's policy before packing up your suitcase.
  3. Bring appropriate clothes for every situation. To accommodate a day's worth of weather fluctuations, plan to dress in layers so you can quickly adapt to whatever Mother Nature brings your way. Oh, and don't forget your umbrella.
  4. Rethink your packing method. Did you know that rolling clothes take up less space than folding them and prevents wrinkles? Also, think carefully about the type of shoes you will need for different occasions.
  5. Use a soft-sided carry-on. Soft-sided carry-ons are perfect for air and bus travel because the flexible outer fabric ensures for hassle-free storage in tight spaces.
