1Planning a vacation is fun, but when it's time to pack, the fun-o-meter drops. Packing entails proper planning because you have to consider many factors: the destination's weather, the number of days you'll be away, and the activities you'll be doing. The last thing you want to happen is to forget your essentials. To make packing a smooth experience, check out our hacks below!

1. Plan your outfits in advance, so that you'll know what clothes and shoes you'll need to bring. If you don't have time to draft your ootds, go straight to number two and three.

2. Stick to one color palette. This makes matching your clothes easier!

3. Pack the basics: shorts, a lightweight jersey LBD, several t-shirts, a bikini (if applicable), a button-down top, a sexy top, flip-flops, and a pair of heels. Just wear your jacket, jeans, and bulky boots at the airport to free up some space in your luggage.

4. Roll your clothes instead of folding them to save tons of space.

5. An easy hack to pack the correct number of undies: One day is equal to two panties and one bra.

6. Store your panties inside the cups of the molded bras to retain the shape of the bras and to save space! Then, keep them safe and clean in a cloth bag.

7. For toiletries and cosmetics, whatever is in your current kikay kit, they are the only things you need. If you do not use a particular product daily, then you will probably not use it for your trip at all. You can also buy shampoo and conditioner sachets instead of bringing the heavy, full-sized bottles.

8. Place your shoes inside a shower cap or plastic bag to protect your clothes from their dirty soles.

9. Placing socks inside shoes is good idea when you’re low on packing space.

10. Protect your breakables like perfume bottles by tucking them inside socks.

11. Always bring an extra set of clothes and underwear in your carry-on bag. It’s best to be prepared for delayed flights, or, heaven forbid, a lost luggage.
