We all know that ever-daunting task of packing for a holiday.
Here are some packing tips and tricks to help you on your next holiday:

  1. Use a packing checklist
  2. Always pack a towel
  3. Roll; don’t fold. This saves space and time
  4. Cover your shoes with a shower cap to protect your clothes from dirt
  5. Bring plastic and zip lock bags
  6. LEAK-PROOF BOTTLES: Before you pack, take the lids off liquid cosmetics and cover the top with cling film, then do the lid up tightly over the top. This prevents any annoying leaks
