Don't bring too much stuff. Just bring the essentials.

It's okay to bring a lot on your travel. Best thing to do to fit your belongings is as much as possible make your things smaller so that you can organize and arrange it finely.

Never buy a backpack/suitcase that is bigger than carry-on size. If your travel pack/suitcase is small, there is no possible way to overpack.

Make sure you bring just the right amount of clothes. There's no need to bring a month's worth of clothes if you're going to travel for a week or so only.

The best packing tip is to pack a daypack inside your full size bag. This way, at the airport, you can take the second bag out, and have two bags small enough to carry them both on. Now, you never lose your bag, and don’t pay baggage handling fees.

Clothing made from merino wool is super-lightweight, keeps you warm in cold weather and cool in hot weather and you can wear it for days on end and it still won’t smell.

Leave those bulky jackets and boots behind and head to a warmer climate. Bikinis and sandals don’t take up much room leaving your suitcase light with plenty of room for souvenirs.

For me, the key to packing light is clothing choice. I always favor synthetic materials for undergarments and insulting layers in favor of cotton because they are lighter weight and don’t take up a lot of volume. They also dry quicker if you need to launder while on the road. For instance, I’d favor a Polartec quarter zip over a heavy cotton sweater. Smart wool is another alternative.

When choosing your clothing for a trip take a look at each item’s fabric and consider the following factors: quality, thickness, weight, wrinkles, transparency, and texture. Your ideal travel clothing is durable, takes up minimal space and weight, is wrinkle-free and opaque, and matches with the rest of your clothing in style and fit.

Versatile, low-maintenance clothing is key to packing light. Make sure they're comfortable and they can be packed small. They can be used for both cold and warm weather.
