As I mentioned in my post earlier this month, I wasn’t always the best packer. But, thankfully, I’ve had a lot of practice.
This trip home has been the longest I’ve ever had to pack for so I had to be smart about it. We recently purchased new hard shell luggage to better protect our things and so far, it’s been well worth the investment — all my gifts for my sister and her family made it to Phoenix unscathed and I know I’ll be able to transport my precious cargo (my favorite scented candles and some Reese’s, of course) back to Tokyo intact. Luggage doesn’t have to come with a heavy price tag to be quality, just do your research and you’ll get years and years and thousands of miles out of it.
Now, when it comes to packing your luggage, I have some suggestions to help you get the most storage space out of your bags. These tips made this trip much more organized and I hope they help you on your next adventure, too.
