How To Pack Smart | Traveling Advice!

Published by Darron Toy on



hello everyone and welcome back to my channel it's Ashley Nicole today's video is going to be so much fun we're talking about traveling traveling tips traveling techniques for traveling smart for traveling let's say it one more time traveling so I like to think last year was the best year of my life you want to know why I'll tell you why I traveled to eleven different places last year so I chopped up a lot not just last year but I would say the last like three years total that being said I think it's safe to say that I have really learned how to pack and how to text smart and how to practice fective ly when traveling different places it could be me or it could be really really far so I've gone ahead and put this video together with some tips and tricks for you to learn how to text smart and effective so when I travel places I am the type of person that likes to buy things and I want to buy the souvenirs and the chocolates like everybody else what I really like to buy is clothes different clothes that you can't really find in the state so that way when you bring it back and you wear it out here everyone's like oh fish you're cute ah where'd you get it and you're like Sweden so that's what I like to do but you definitely don't want to just leave room and your suitcase for what you may or may not buy so what I recommend is a bag packing to bag this is the bag in the bag technique you want it to be made of a thin material plus easily collapsible and doesn't take up much room you put it in the lining of your suitcase and zip it up and if you do buy stuff that you weren't planning on or or it's bigger than you thought you have an extra bag that you can use are no packing cubes have been a game-changer for me I've heard people talk about packing cubes for a long time I was like oh not necessary like I have my technique down I don't need it and then last year when I traveled to Estonia and Sweden I use some for the first time and I was able to pack two weeks worth of clothing in a carry-on sized suitcase and it's because of the packing cubes let's be honest it's because of the cube another classic mistake most travelers do is fold their clothes if your folder what a noob you are folding takes up so much room in your suitcase and increases it creases all your clothes rolling is the best thing you can do the best thing best best thing you can do is roll your clothes and put them in the packing cube in order to keep things organized and clean and smelling nice I recommend a dirty clothes bag and this doesn't have to be a huge bag and then that way when you're at your destination you have a spot to put your dirty underwear your dirty socks your muddy shoes whatever it is that you use and it got really dirty you just take the dirty clothes and put it in the dirty clothes bag so that way everything's separated everything's neat and clean and tidy and organized color-coordinating is the key factor to packing light and this is most important with shoes and coat if you're going somewhere and you don't have a lot of room in your bag then you need to prioritize by color coordinating your outfits together I tend to stick around colors like brown black white and gray all four of those colors tend to go well together obviously you create your own color scheme if you're not as boring as I am and you have bright colors in your life and do you got if you're running out of room in your suitcase and you have these little things that are taking up room like socks underwear jewelry then put them in your shoes there is a bunch of room in each pair of shoes that is not being used then I recommend that you use it with anything that you have laying around your suitcase stuff your shoes it makes sense there's room use it now if you're going somewhere and you're really planning on purchasing a lot of stuff and bringing it home with you then the bag in the bag is not going to work you're going to need two suitcases so you don't want to pay for two suitcases so here's what you do here's what you do you pack all of your stuff in the smaller suitcase and put the small suitcase in the big suitcase and then check the big suitcase so you're only paying for one suitcase even though there's two if two suitcases in one we see the trick now this has never happened to me but I have know plenty of people plenty of people who have gotten to their destination and their luggage got lost or it got delayed and they ended up without everything they didn't have their stuff so I always always recommend that you have an essential bag in your carry-on it'll have your toothbrush your toothpaste your face wash deodorants whatever that you need from day to day wrap it all up and put it inside a small bag and put it at the bottom of your carry-on so it's not in the way of anything that you might need on your flight and that way you have a back-up plan and my last final advice for you guys is to always wear the heavier things on the flight always if you are packing a huge coat or big heavy boots or something like that I highly recommend that you wear it on the flight both there and back so that that way it's not taking up any room or adding any extra weight to your luggage and yeah that is it that is all the packing advice I have for you guys today if you enjoyed the video like it if you like me subscribe be sure to

We once went to Disney and they had this thing wear they separately deliver your things so when you get to your hotel, it’s already there. Well we got to our hotel around 6 pm and our lugguge wasn’t there. It didn’t come to our hotel untill 1:00am and I had my contacts in so I couldn’t sleep. So PACK THE ESSENTIALS BAG!!!

Ladylalleke · July 30, 2019 at 7:51 pm

Everyone always tells you to wear your heaviest clothes/ shoes… on the plane… I don't agree with it: this summer, I will travel with a hiking backpack instead of a suitcase because for the first part of the trip we're going to another city every two days and for the second part we're staying in tents. I have to be able to easily carry my backpack even when I'm wearing my lightest outfit + I'm wearing what's comfortable on the plane and not what's the heaviest. Also, I'm landing in NYC, which is a lot, a lot warmer than where I live.

Tessa Laszlo · July 30, 2019 at 7:51 pm

this is superrrr late but it just came up in my recommended! just in time for my trip to england. with that said, i stand by folding. since i am staying for about a month, i am doing laundry and will have access to an iron. so, if my things get creased it doesn’t really matter. when i fold i can stack. if i roll, i can’t stack because in a carry on it doesn’t fit. (yes, i am packing for a month in a carry on. rewear things people) some things i roll but i find folding shirts so much easier to pack and save space.

Lrxy · July 30, 2019 at 7:51 pm

I’m glad you didnt put your undies in your shoes. Ive seen so many videos where ppl do that and it’s kinda gross lol. Also packing cubes are a game changer

Staer ‘ · July 30, 2019 at 7:51 pm

Specifically Army folding clothes is the best.
It’s pretty much like rolling but more secure :}

White Dragon · July 30, 2019 at 7:51 pm

the most stupid vlog i ever saw.. always talking about underwear n shoes. if your undies are dirty first was it let it dry then put it.. n what about makeup stuff??????

Madyson Dean · July 30, 2019 at 7:51 pm

Sofia Morales · July 30, 2019 at 7:51 pm

I’m going to go on 2-3 trains, about a 10 hour drive to the first train but when I get off the last train,……IM GETTING ON A CRUISE! So we needed our own suitcases so this helped a lot! I’m going to Russia,Sweden,Hamburg,Copenhagen,and about 3-4 more places! 🧳 okay don’t hate on me,I could be wrong with out traveling times! My dads lugage got lost and came back when he was deployed!

Banana_ Cappuccino · July 30, 2019 at 7:51 pm

I don’t use packing blocks and I packed almost 1 months worth of cloths on a carry on… “it’s the packing blocks let’s be honest it’s the packing blocks” (I was like 8 so everything’s SMALL!!!)
