Thinking of buying some packing cubes? If so, then we believe this article will really help you out. These are best treated like "mini-drawers. Lift your clothes from the suitcase, into the dresser drawer or wardrobe."

Packing Cube Buyer's Guide

In this packing cube buying guide we will offer you some tips if you are thinking about buying a set of these. Most packing cubes are made from either nylon or polyester. Polyester is better quality and you normally find these are more expensive.

Almost all of the brands use a mesh top or a mesh window and that allows you to quicky see the contents without having to open up the cube.

Some of the packing cube sets also have zip lock bags or pouches, which are great for make-up, toiletries, camera leads, shoes etc.

There are also packing envelopes which we think are worth some consideration as well. For any of this type of packing cube though, we think it comes down to how much you want to get and stay organised.

Packing cubes are certainly one very good way of achieving that, and especially if you happen to be the family packer. Some people will use the larger cube to hold the dirty laundry once it is unpacked of course. Other people then use the smaller cubes for packing their smalls. maybe for electronic gadgets etc.

There is no set way for making good use of these. People use these for different reasons.

Staying in Different Places

If you are on a holiday where you may be staying in different hotels or at different locations packing cubes can make those transitions a great deal easier. Some people will pack one cube for a destination, and another for a different destination.

If for example you were going on a city/beach holiday, then packing different types of clothes in separate cubes does make a lot of sense.

Family Members & Children

If you are travelling as a family, then some people use their packing cubes so as each person ha their own cube. That saves you a lot of time and a whole lot of questions such as "Where is my swimsuit?, Have you seen my burgundy shorts? etc"

This is good for families with babies, toddlers and teenagers.

Wrinkle Free and Stain Free

Cubes can also save your clothes from stains, wrinkles and damages while travelling. If you have ever arrived at your destination with your bikini or shorts covered in sun cream that has opened during the flight, then you will know what I mean. 

They don't completely get rid of wrinkles but they do help a lot.
