Trying to pack in only a carry-on always seems like a daunting task, but
it’s particularly challenging during the winter when colder temperatures
call for bulkier items like coats and boots. That being said, you still
don’t want to lug around a huge suitcase just for a
weekend trip. With some smart planning, you can fit everything you need and more for
your winter getaway in a simple carry-on bag.
Wear Your Bulkiest Items
Clothes usually take up the majority of the space in your suitcase, especially
during the winter. Free up some much needed room in your bag by wearing
your bulkiest items during the journey. Bring one neutral coat, and layer
it over your clothes as you travel. If you get too warm on the plane you
can always take it off! Consider taking just two pairs of shoes with one
pair of boots and a pair of versatile sneakers or flats. Wear the boots
and pack the other shoes to maximize your space.
Mix and Match
Another way to save space on clothes is to limit the number of items you
pack. Choose a few comfortable and stylish pieces that can be mixed and
matched for different looks. This tip allows you to get a different look
every day without having to pack a complete outfit for every day. Essentials
like a pair of jeans, a cozy cardigan, a thermal tee, and a day-to-night
dress can be combined in many different ways to give you variety and save space.
Stock Up on Travel-Sized Toiletries
If you’ve taken our advice on how to pack clothes, you probably have
plenty of room for toiletries and other items, but there are plenty of
ways to save space in this area, too. Most toiletries and beauty products
are available in travel-sized containers, which will not only save space
but also will help get you through airport security as well. If your favorite
products aren’t available in smaller sizes, try buying reusable
containers and filling them up yourself.
