Top 10 Packing Hacks for Savvy Travelers

1. Protect your razor with a binder clip


This will also prevent a finger massacre when you’re scrounging around in your toiletry bag.

2. Pack non-iron clothes that all revolve around one or two color schemes.


Sounds boring, but you’ll be able to mix and match like a pro, and you’ll have space in your bags for souvenirs.

3. Keep a change of clothes in your carry-on


Someone spills a soda in your lap at the beginning of a 14 hour flight, and then you arrive and your luggage is lost. Not fun.

4. Put dirty clothes in a laundry bag with a small bar of soap


Mixing your dirty Dead Sea shorts with your clean night out in Tel Aviv gear is less than ideal. Any draw string bag will do the job perfectly, and a bar of soap will keep everything smelling fresh.

5. Email yourself copies of your passport, health insurance documents etc


Why? Because it’s just the smart thing to do.

6. Pack basic medication


This should include Ibuprofen, Imodium, band aids, disinfectant, and Berocca tablets for recovering from long nights.

7. Pack a few different sizes of ziploc bags


If you don’t end up using them, then who cares? They took no space whatsoever. But if you do end up needing something to put your sticky bottle of cough mixture or wet bathing suit in, they could be a lifesaver.

8. Get a portable phone charger


You’re halfway through your day of touring, tons of photos you still want to take, and Bam! Battery dies.

9. Hide emergency cash in a lipbalm tube


You’re not just hiding it from would-be thieves, you’re setting it aside in case of an emergency so it won’t get spent on falafel and souvenirs.

10. Always pack flip flops


It doesn’t matter where you’re going or what season it is, flip flops are like socially acceptable slippers, that can prevent you catching something funky in a public beach shower, and protect your feet from the sharp rocks and salt crystals at the Dead Sea.
