Important steps to make your travel comfortable and orderly

Important steps to make your travel comfortable and orderly

 Is setting up bags the first thing you think about when you decide to travel? Many people confront the bewilderment of preparing suitcases, hesitating long in front of the open bag, asking: What do we really need to take? And what if we leave these clothes? Maybe we need it while traveling. Let them end up with stacked and filled bags for purposes they don't really use while traveling. According to Prof. Carrie Cooper, a leading professor of organizational psychology at Lancaster University, traveling with all the combined stress, in addition to anxiety and fear of the unknown, makes us accompany more clothes and items in what is known in psychology as "security blanket." So we try to provide below a comprehensive guide to preparing suitcases professionally.

How do we choose the best suitcase?

The first step when preparing a travel bag is to choose the right travel bag for your needs. If you travel by plane, you will often need a solid-body bag to keep your broken luggage from being damaged. While you can use flexible bags if traveling by car. Ensure the dimensions of the bag and its suitability for the permitted dimensions of travel according to the airline's rules.

Make sure to choose a lightweight bag. Most steel body bags are made from materials that combine durability and lightweight. Also make sure the zipper durability and bag lock durability, as well as the durability of the wheels and traction arm and it is suitable for your length so that it does not hit your heels while walking. If you travel frequently, invest in a suitcase at a high price and higher specifications.

Making menus makes it easier for you

Before traveling long enough, make sure to write a list of everything you need and update it whenever you remember something, and ensure that the list contains everything you need, both electronic devices such as camera, shaving machine and chargers, and electrical transformer lattens if you are traveling to a country that uses a different electric stream to your devices. as well as personal care tools.

Choosing clothes is not random

The biggest mistake we make when processing clothes is choosing clothes that we just like without enough planning. Good planning includes taking into account the number of travel days, the cultural nature of the country you travel to, the state of the atmosphere at different times of the day, as well as the various events you plan to attend; The clothing suitable for a beach vacation is different from the clothing suitable for a safari, and it certainly differs entirely from the clothing suitable for a business trip, which applies also to shoes.

Be careful to choose which pieces of clothing you can wear in more than one way in more than one format, so as to reduce the number of pieces you take with you as much as possible, and this also applies to accessories. Justin Klosky, Founder of O.C.D Regulatory Consulting, advises you to take three overalls for each bottom piece, where you can repeat the trousers or skirt itself while switching the top pieces to look different. Don't forget to take lingerie and socks with enough numbers (if the trip is a week or less take the number of days, but if it is more than seven days, take no more than seven pieces and be careful to wash what you need to reuse during your trip).

Arrange your bag smartly

Start by placing small pieces and pieces made of materials that do not need ironing such as socks, underwear, scarves and swimwear at the bottom of the bag in the gaps between the two traction handle columns, as well as clothes made of heavy fabrics such as jeans. As for clothing, there are two teams; A team prefers to pack clothes in single layers on top of each other, while the other team prefers to wrap clothes in a cylindrical way and pack them next to each other in a regular manner, both teams are of the view that the two methods provide space and help to keep clothes singled and need no more ironing.

The coiling method fits flexible bags, cotton or wool clothing more, while the single layers method fits steel structure bags and clothing made of crackable fabrics such as linen or silk, as well as formal clothing. For heavy size clothes such as heavy coats or long neck shoes, you can wear them while travelling or take them with you to lighten the bag.

After the clothes come the turn of the shoes, put each pair of shoes in a plastic bag and close it tightly so as not to contaminate the rest of the clothes, if you have chosen to rub the clothes in the way of twisting the shoes in the four corners of the bag. If you choose the stratification method, put the shoes on top. You can put socks inside the shoes to save more space.

Personal Care Tools

Finally put personal care tools, makeup and medicines in sealed plastic bags or bags so as not to cause damage to clothes if bottles break during the journey. Also make sure you don't take full-size lotions, but only take a few quantities that will suffice. You can buy the right small sizes for travel, and if you are not available you can unload the right quantities in refillable bottles.

Take emergency medication during travel, such as: residential and hypothermic medication, vomiting medication, intestinal disinfectant, contraceptives, bandages, insect bite ointments, or any medications you use chronically, especially if your destination does not allow over-the-counter selling of medication.


It is also recommended to place electronic devices such as camera and laptop in the personal bag you take with you on the plane, as well as precious jewelry, do not forget your personal papers such as passport and airline tickets, insurance and international driver's license, your bank card, and any other personal papers.

After closing the bags do not forget to make sure that their weight is suitable for the weight allowed so that you are not surprised at the airport, taking care to leave enough weight in case you want to buy memorabilia or gifts or shopping is a goal of your trip. And remember at the end to enjoy your journey and not make bags heavy or obstacle to your enjoyment.
