Have you begun your July 4th 2019 Vacay Prep? What are you waiting for? With the holiday a week away, you better get started. To help you out, here are some helpful packing tips:
These are one of our favorites travel inventions! They are available in different colors and sizes so you can properly separate items – and know what is what. Once you arrive, you can continue to use the cubes in your hotel dresser, etc.
If you’re like many others out there, you may not always know what you want to wear that day. Whether traveling for a weekend or an extended stay, the idea of creating future outfits can be daunting. A great suggestion would be to lay out several outfits that offer pieces that can be mixed and matched. If you go off the track, you still have options for the following days. An even better suggestions is doing this a few days ahead and then revisiting. You may be willing to let go of a few items.
Tricks of the Trade
Heavier items should be packed on what will be the bottom of your suitcase. During travel, your wardrobe will shift so prepare ahead. Lighter and more delicate items should stay near the top. Loose packing leaves room for additional shifting. While overpacking can also be an issue, you should pack ‘just enough’. When in doubt, throw in a handy travel steamer! They don’t take up much space and are great for a quick freshening up.
Before your trip, look over all items to make sure they are spot-free, fresh and ready for the trip of their lifetime. Any tailoring or repairs needed? There is still time! And after your trip, simply have your items picked up for their proper post-vacay care. Stop by or give us a call today at (212) 832-0750.
