Travel Tips That Make Packing Easier

Now is the time for making plans for the future. As the days grow steadily longer and warmer, we long to hit the road and enjoy the sunshine and the newness of spring. Hopefully, soon we’ll be able to do just that.

For this spring season, we’re so pleased to present our new Madeleine Travel Collection. This collection is designed with vintage-styled maple vegan leather with antiqued gold hardware. You’ll find this line to be made of the highest quality and the most luxuriously soft materials available. They also come with wipeable cloth linings for easy cleaning. 

In the spirit of our new collection, here are five tips to make packing easier for the travel of your dreams.

Travel Tips

1. Make a list. Consider the climate of your destination, length of stay, and possible events you’d like to attend. Don’t forget the basics like toothbrushes, medication, and underwear.

2. Don’t pack your essentials in a checked bag. If you should reach your destination before your luggage—say your outfits and sundries take a detour to Tacoma, courtesy of the airlines—have at least one change of clothes, your money, your passport, laptop, and anything else you’ll need for the first few days of your trip with you.

3. Even better, plan your trip so you’ll only need a carry-on and not have to wait at the airport carousel for your belongings.

4. Choose outfits that mix and match well together. Also, pack your high-quality basics that dress up for dinner or down for casual wear. If you have access to a washer and dryer, keep that in mind while you pack and go minimalist. Bring along your standard favorites that make you look and feel your best in stylish comfort.

5. Rolling your clothes actually takes up less room than folding does. You’ll have more room if you use your space well. You’ll find you also have less wrinkles this way. Keep your cosmetics, shampoo, shaving cream, and other items sealed and separated from your clothes. Keep stain-removing wipes tucked inside one of these inner bags in case of any mishaps with your wardrobe while you’re on the road.

We hope you enjoy our new travel line as much as we enjoyed envisioning, designing, and creating our ideal travel gear. We’re thrilled to share this collection with you.
