As if holiday traveling weren’t already hard enough, the thought of trying to squeeze party dresses and wrapped gifts into our luggage is enough to make our head spin. Luckily, we found a few tricks that maximize suitcase space and minimize stress. Here, 12 of the most genius holiday packing hacks we’ve encountered in our travels.
Airlines jack up their prices based on your Web history. So beat them at their game.
Rolling your clothes in a pillowcase not only compresses your garments but also keeps them wrinkle-free. Win-win.
TSA reserves the right to tear open your beautifully wrapped gifts. Play it safe with festive bags and some tissue paper.
TSA PreCheck is so, so worth it. You’ll be speeding through security—shoes on and laptop in bag—in more than 150 U.S. airports. Seriously, no one has ever regretted it.
It ensures a balanced distribution of weight. Your arm will thank you.
If your hotel (or, uh, parents’ house) has one, there’s no need to bring the extra bulk.
That means like this. No more stained blouses in this suitcase.
Tangled headphones means spending time detangling the wires instead of catching up on Fleabag. Try this wrapping trick instead.
Like cold cream. It’s moisturizing and it removes makeup like whoa.
We’re not ones to get all fancy at the airport, but a dress with pockets is stylish and practical when you need to take out your ID a million times.
