Consider packing apparel with multiple uses, for example, pants with zip-off legs that can be turned into shorts when the weather warms up or a wrap that could do double duty as a shawl and beach coverup.

It is easy to fill up a large suitcase with clothing and shoes when traveling. However, there are ways to pare down your clothing to avoid overpacking. For example, you could opt for a smaller suitcase to help limit the amount of clothing you can take.
Packing your clothing to save space and minimize wrinkling could allow you to leave your travel clothes iron at home. Consider the fabric of the clothing when deciding whether the garment should be rolled or folded.
Using all the nooks and crannies in your suitcase is key to fitting in all of your accessories. Utilize space around rolled and folded clothing, inside shoes, and under hats. Don’t forget to utilize the zippered suitcase pockets.
