Anytime you have a trip planned, the excitement is dampened by the thought of having to organize yourself and pack enough things. The added worry of making sure that you haven’t overpacked or under packed doesn’t help matters at all. A great solution to the problem of packing a decent amount of clothes and fitting it all in your suitcase is using packing cubes. These particular ones are so great that many flight attendants actually swear by them.
The Shacke Pak Packing Cubes are available on Amazon for $22 and include 4 cubes of varying sizes which will help you pack for a two week trip in an organized fashion. You can decide which cube to use for what and make them fit into your suitcase comfortable.
The cubes are made of water- and stain-resistant nylon and has a mesh cover so you can easily see what’s in the cube, keep your packed items ventilated, and also release the air to free up valuable space in your suitcase.
The cubes feature an all-around zipper to make packing and unpacking a breeze. There’s also a drawstring bag included if you need to fit extra items or want to use it as a laundry bag or shoes. This is also great to use as a wet bag if you’re using a bathing suit while on your trip.
On Amazon, these cubes have a 4.8 star rating and over 8000 reviews that are glowing. One user said: “changed the way I pack forever” since they “allow me to pack two to three times more than I used to be able to.”
Another reviewer mentioned that these cubes were recommended to them by a flight attendant who said they’re “the best way to pack and travel.” A third reviewer said “I thought they might take up too much precious room, but [using them] was like adding room.”
A flight attendant shared: “Before these, my bag was a mess and I wasn’t able to fit as much in my suitcase. Now it’s organized and I’ve got more clothing options for trips!”
Finally, a reviewer shared exactly what she was able to pack in her bag while using the cubes. She said she was able to pack “two jackets, one jean vest, four [pairs of] pants and capris, two pairs of shorts, one romper, four dresses, one maxi skirt, seven tank tops, four shirts, three camisoles, three pajama sets, 15 [pairs of underwear[, six pairs of socks, and four pairs of shoes,” for a 10 day trip to Europe.
