6 reasons for packing with cubes

August 17, 2006

Packing for me is an art. I enjoy consolidating my life into one bag. My wife leaves it to me to pack our suitcase, pack the car, pack whatever needs a Tetris-like packing job. Cubes make packing so organized. Organized = Easy. So here are my reasons for packing with cubes:

1. You can pack an outfit per cube

2. When you have worn an outfit, you can repack clothing into cubes to go straight to the wash when you get home. This keeps your clean and dirty clothes separated (I say this because when we go on trips we end up putting our kids’ clothes in the suitcase with ours, and within 24hours of arrival it is in one big heap. Keeping things organized is key.

3. Organizing your sharp knives and hair gel in cubes will make it easier for the TSA to rifle search through and confiscate your hazardous items.

4. It makes it easier to find things, while living out of a suitcase.

5. It keeps your footprint smaller when staying with relatives or friends. This is helpful to not “wear out your welcome” before its time to catch your flight back home.

6. Use a larger cube to keep a child’s belongings separate within your own suitcase.
