The durable and long-lasting packing cubes help in organized packing, save more space and are also lightweight.

Use small bottles to carry shampoo, body lotion and other toiletries. This will save space in the trolley and can also be reused once done with the trip.

Having a second medical kit lessens the chances of missing out on the important doses while on back-to-back trip.
Heavy things first
Grouping the items into heavy and light is yet another smart packing tip. Fitting in the heavy items first then followed by the lighter ones makes a strong base for the trolley to sit in. Also, the gaps in between can be utilized to plug in some extra totes or jute bags to serve the trip later.

A thumb rule for packing is that you do the entire packing and then cut it in half. You will be astonished to find that you are only left with the essentials.
The all-purpose outfits
Choose your outfit keeping in mind the kind of destination you are visiting. Shoes occupy a lot of space in the trolley, so pair them according to the outfits.
