Packing space savers that work at home

Packing space savers

A staycation doesn’t feel like a trip if you don’t treat it like one, and that includes packing. These space savers work at home with limited space as well, not just when you’re packing your suitcase.

One tip that is more well-known to people is to roll clothes instead of folding them. 

Here are four others that may be less familiar to you.

Tissue paper

Use tissue paper to minimize the amount of wrinkling in clothes. Wrap each piece individually in a sheet. It is a time saver too, or if like me you hate ironing, it’s everything!

Travel space bags

Get some small travel compartment bags to save space and keep your clothes organized and wrinkle-free. You can also use sustainable reusable silicone resealable kitchen bags in various sizes if you already have them for food storage. 

Solve the shoe dilemma

Shoes are always a space issue! I’m still trying to figure out where to put some of mine at home. I have it figured out packing shoes for travel. I wear my bulkiest pair and can get by with only one other pair, even for 11 days!. For packing, place your shoes in empty spots in your luggage. Never put them together. It takes up too much room. If you must, and this tip also works in your closet, place them heel to toe.

The small stuff

Shoes aren’t just good for wearing! When you’re packing, or have minimal space at home, here are some things you can do.

Put your socks or nylons into a pair of shoes.

Place jewellery in small bags and put them in your shoes. If you’re using this tip at home, mark the jewellery. It ensures pieces are easy to find when you need them!

These are just a few space savers to help make room for your clothes, shoes and accessories.
