Are you curious about packing cubes? Are they really beneficial? Do they really save space? Read on to find out!
12 Benefits of Using Packing Cubes
With a price tag of roughly $20 for a set of three, I’d say packing cubes are definitely worth a try. I can’t travel without mine and many travelers feel the same way.
While it’s possible to use Ziploc bags to store your clothing, actual packing organizers have several more benefits and don’t cost that much more money.
These are my top 12 reasons why every traveler should use packing cubes:
I’ve had mine for over 3 years and use them almost daily.
You can use small/slim packing cubes to compress your clothing and travel for any trip with just a carry-on bag. Watch this packing video tutorial for more info.
Color-code clothing by using different color packing cubes for each family member.
Ideal for organization/storage within a hotel/hostel when shelf space is limited.
Easy to Clean
Throw them in the wash (hang dry) after a trip or during for long term travels.
Use them for clothing, shoes, electronics, and anything else you want to store.
I stuff them and abuse them and they haven’t given up on me yet.
On your flight, use a cube stuffed with clothing as a neck pillow.
Carry your travel comforts, like a neck pillow, scarf, sweater, or blanket.
Use them at home for storage or to maximize limited closet space.
Better than using plastic bags!
