Top Packing Tips for Traveling Light

As an avid traveler and owner of COR Surf, I understand the importance of packing efficiently to make the most of limited space.  I hate checking luggage, and will go at-lengths to make sure I can travel with just a backpack so I can hit the ground running when I land.

Whether you're going on a weekend getaway or a month-long adventure, packing light can save you time and hassle. Here are some tips to help you pack efficiently and travel light

How to Pack for your Next Trip

Roll, Don't Fold: When it comes to packing clothes, rolling them up instead of folding them can save a significant amount of space in your luggage. Not only does rolling prevent wrinkles, but it also allows you to fit more clothes in your bag. 

Use Packing Cubes: Packing cubes are a game-changer when it comes to organization and maximizing space in your luggage. These handy containers separate your clothes and items, making it easier to find what you need and compressing your belongings to make more room in your bag. COR Surf has several different sizes and color options of premium packing cubes. The great thing about our packing cubes is they compress down to help eliminate wasted space 


Choose Versatile Clothing: Select clothing items that can be mixed and matched to create multiple outfits. This will help you pack fewer clothes while still having a variety of options to choose from during your trip. Always be prepared for bad weather. Even if the forecast is sunny, things can always change and not having the right clothes can ruin your trip. 

Pack Multi-Purpose Items: Look for items that serve multiple purposes, such as a scarf that can also be used as a blanket or a sarong that can double as a beach towel. COR Surf Travel Towels are compact, lightweight and is the perfect size for laying on the beach, or to use as a blanket on the plane. 

Wear Your Bulkiest Items: Instead of packing bulky items like jackets or boots, wear them on the plane to save space in your luggage. You can always take them off once you reach your destination.

Consider Toiletry Alternatives: Instead of packing full-size toiletry bottles, transfer your products into travel-sized containers or invest in solid toiletries like shampoo bars and travel size bottles. Target has a great selection of travel items I always grab before my trip. The COR Surf toiletry bag is a well thought-out design that is small and compact, but has multiple compartments to separate all your items. 

    Bring Reusable Bags: Pack a couple of reusable bags in your luggage to use for dirty laundry, souvenirs, or as a beach bag during your trip. They take up minimal space and come in handy for various purposes. The COR Surf Packing Cube Set actually comes with a laundry bag so you can separate your clean and dirty clothes. The worst thing is not remembering which socks and underwear are clean! 

    Remember, the key to traveling light is to plan ahead, be organized, and choose versatile items that can serve multiple purposes. By following these packing tips, you can maximize space in your luggage and enjoy an stress-free journey. Safe travels!
