Packing Hacks That Will Change Your Life

Packing Hacks That Will Change Your Life
Competition season is right around the corner and it's time to pull out the suitcase and get going. Packing can be the most stressful part of traveling so we complied a few tips to help you start packing like a pro!


Make a packing list

In the days leading up to a competition, packing will be the last thing on your mind. When you have about a week left write out a packing list of everything you could possibly need. You will have a few days to adjust it if needed and it will keep you from forgetting the essentials.



Don't get your cords in a tangle

Headphones and charging cords are a necessity on every trip. Fold them into an eye class case to keep them neat and tidy all in one place.

Don't fold, roll!

Folding your clothes takes up way too much space. Instead try neatly rolling to save space and prevent your clothes from wrinkling.

So fresh and so clean

Place a dryer sheet at the top and bottom of your suitcase to keep your clothes static free and smelling great!

Use travel cubes

After rolling, consolidate your clothes into packing cubes or large plastic bags to keep corresponding clothes together. The cubes will keep your suitcase organized like drawers all weekend long!

Tape your toiletries

To prevent a shampoo explosion on your uniform, take masking tape to seal of the lids to all your toiletries.



Pack a laundry bag

By the end of competition weekend you will have a mound of dirty clothes. Pack a laundry bag to keep your dirty socks away from your brand-new competition shirt.


Leave extra space for souvenirs

Don't cram your suitcase full when packing for a competition. Leave some extra space for a few competition souvenirs and a possible first place medal!
