Travelling is a lot of fun. You discover new and exciting places, experience new cultures and enjoy breathtaking sights.
Packing Dulls Your Love For Travel
We all love to travel, but how many of us love to pack?
Yeah, travelling is great because it gives us the opportunity to unwind, relax and recharge our batteries.
However, let’s face it, preparing for it is so stressful and frustrating, that by the time you finish packing, you feel like you need a vacation just because of this.
Under-Packers versus Over-Packers
When it comes to packing, there are two types of people: under packers and over packers.
You either take too little stuff with you and may find yourself needing to buy stuff at your destination or too much and you end up dragging along a bulging mess of luggage.
And truth be told, neither option is good.
Underpacking may seem like a good idea, especially if you want to travel as light as possible. But what happens if the weather suddenly changes or you somehow manage to stain your clothes or 100 other things can happen that could force you to buy things that you need.
Packing Takes Up Too Much Of Your Time
Now tell me, who wants to waste hours shopping for clothes and toothpaste instead of turning that time into #happytime?
Plus where are you going to put all that new stuff? Cram it all in the small luggage you came with and pray it turns into the magician’s hat so it magically fits everything?
And if you do that, what are you going to do with all those souvenirs you plan on buying?
That’s also the problem when you overpack. Not only does this mean you’re taking half your closet “just in case”, but you’ll also be forced to drag cumbersome luggage around with you.
And when you thought it couldn’t get more laborsome ... What do you do when you reach your destination?
Do you unpack all your stuff, put it in neatly in your hotel … or are you living out of your suitcase, each day digging through everything in an effort to find what you're looking for?
Unpacking Versus Luggage Mess
Both options have more downsides than upsides.
On one hand, you waste time trying to put everything in its place, like you're moving in or something... That’s not only time consuming but puts you at risk of forgetting something when you leave.
On the other hand, you end up making a big mess of your luggage. Not to mention that on your last day you are forced to do complex mathematical equations to figure out how to stuff everything back in (plus the souvenirs) without your suitcase exploding in the face of some poor airport worker.
By now I think we can both agree that a traditional approach to travel packing doesn’t really work in these modern times.
Packing Cubes For The Win!
More and more people are turning towards packing cubes as a viable option. Now, in case you don’t know, packing cubes are relatively small containers made of fabric that help you save luggage space thanks to what is known as a compression system.
But if we’re completely honest here, not all packing cubes are made equal. Most of them pull apart like butter after a couple of trips (I know mine did) and when it comes to compression, they’re one of those jokes only funny when they don’t happen to you.
Do All Packing Cubes Work?
You’re probably thinking: ok, but they’re only $20. That’s not so much if you get a couple uses out of them.
Yeah, $20 isn’t a fortune, but when you take into account the fact that the average person goes on vacation at least 2-3 a year, plus the occasional family gatherings and special holidays, you start to realize that you might be travelling anywhere from 5 to 10 times a year.
And I’m not even considering business travels, which for many people are something that happens at least once a month.
So when you stop and think about this for a second, you’re starting to realize that $20 packing cubes that tear easily aren’t the answer.
We already established that the average person travels for at least 10 times a year (be it business or pleasure). Well, if your $20 packing cubes become useless after 3 trips, that means that within a year you are spending at least $60 on packing cubes alone. In 10 years that’s over $600 that you’re wasting on these low-quality cubes.
Do You Have To Settle?
For some time now I thought I would have to settle for this. You get some, you use them a couple of times, they become useless, they end up in the landfill, you buy new ones again and again.
Either that or invest into a real set of packing cubes that actually delivers much more than a fancy marketing promise and actually lasts you for yeeeeeeears to come.
