It doesn’t matter if you’re going for an overnight trip to Kuala Lumpur or a nine week expedition to conquer the Mount Everest. You’re going to pack at some point in your travel and you want to do it right. Here at KKday, we give 5 Amazing Packing Hacks, you’re going to thank us later!
1. Solid Toothpaste

Hold your horses, fellow contact lens addicts. Don’t dispose your old contact lens case after getting a new one. Instead, keep the old cases for to keep your favourite face cleanser or hand moisturiser so you don’t have to lug the whole tub around on your holiday. Convenient, environmentally-friendly and it doesn’t cost a dime.
3. Vacuum / Ziplock Bag

You go to Bangkok with an empty luggage yet you still find your luggage filled to the brim by the end of the week. Now you’re at a crossroad: to purchase a bigger luggage or throw out some useless cutesy items you only recently bought. Sounds familiar?
4. Roll It Up
Roll clothes to save space (Seriously Travel)
If you don’t have any vacuum/ziplock bag with you, you could always depend on the classic travel hack: roll your clothes into a sushi. Save up more space by rolling your clothes. For shirts and blouses, fold the body sleeves in half vertically and roll them tight like you would to a burrito. Do the same to your bottoms, fold it in half and roll.
