We bet you’re excited about that big Ontario getaway that’s coming up! After weeks and weeks, you’re finally able to go on the vacation you’ve been wanting to go on for what seems like forever. You’ve probably already started to plan out every little thing you’re going to do when you get there. Have you even considered all that relaxation you’re going to get as you enjoy your time away from reality? What about all of the attractions you’ve just been dying to see? You’re definitely tickled with excitement at the very thought of how you’re going to spend your days on vacation. One factor of making sure your Ontario getaway is everything you’ve wanted is to pack all of your necessities. There are two types of packers. The ones who are constantly double checking everything to make sure they have everything and the ones who throw everything together last minute. If you’re in the latter category, perhaps it’s time to learn how to pack like a pro.
Pack Like A Pro With These Suggestions
Packing like a pro doesn’t happen overnight; however, with these tips, you’ll be able to start on your path to perfect packing. A good vacation always starts with packing. If you don’t bring the proper items for your vacation, then you’ll either get stuck needing to buy everything or you’ll have to miss out on some activities. For example, at The Vineyard Suite, we have an assortment of attractions and activities to do around the property. If you don’t pack clothes you can go fishing in or play golf in, then you’ll be unable to enjoy either of those activities. These tips will help you determine how to pack everything you need and fit it all into your back.
Make A List And Check It Twice
This is an age old suggestion that still works. Whether you make a list on a piece of paper, type it on your iPad, or save it as a note on your cell phone, a packing list allows you to ensure you have every single piece of clothing and other necessities you need to have a swell time. When you write a list, you can mark down each item that you’ve packed in your bag. Try to start making your list a few days in advance, so you can add to it throughout the next few days. When you spend a few days making your list, you’ll be less likely to miss something. Write down everything from clothing you’re bringing to the toiletries you’re going to need.
Keep All Electronics In One Place
With so much technology out there, it’s very seldom that anyone actually goes on vacation without packing at least one electronic. From cell phones to laptops, a vacation has stopped being a vacation due to the plugged-in lifestyle we’re all accustomed to. No one truly is unplugged unless they don’t have wifi and have used all of their data on their cell phone. If you are bringing your electronics, then it’s important that you have all of your cables in a safe spot. The best way to pack your electronics is to put them in a plastic bag, a pocket in a purse, or even a pencil case so everything is in the right place when you go to get them.
Keep Small Items In A Small Bag
In addition to keeping cables all in one place in a small bag, take the time to do the same with your smaller items. This can mean anything from jewelry you’re bringing for those fancy date nights to toys your children can’t live without. Keeping items in a smaller bag will eliminate needing to tear your suitcase apart to search for one small item. Additionally, this can roll over to keeping toiletries all in the same place as well. When you know where you’ve packed items as well as keep them in a small bag, you’re able to find them easier and have them on hand when you need them. You also won’t have the opportunity to lose them in your suitcase.
Learn How To Roll Your Clothes
Did you know that folding actually takes up more room in your suitcase? Instead of folding your clothes, take the time to roll them so you have more room to pack what you need. Additionally, if you want to save even more room, you can put your clothing in a bag and suck out the air with proper vacuum sealed bags. Also, the air in bags can take up just as much room as folding. Rolling outfits can also make it easier to pack everything in one place and eliminate any creases you may have on your clothing.
Less Is More
Airfare and additional fees of suitcases can be very costly. Whether you’re flying an airline that requires you to pay for a suitcase or one that has fees for additional suitcases, nowadays with flying it’s better to pack less to eliminate spending more. Packing less will save you money and you won’t have to worry about losing luggage. A carry-on and a suitcase will be perfect for a week long vacation. Furthermore, with your new tips on how to properly pack, you’ll be able to comfortably fit everything in your suitcase.
