Weekend Travel Bag – Packing Hacks

Weekend Travel Bag – Packing Hacks

Do you love to travel or try to travel at least 1 time a year? We are making an effort now to have a yearly getaway without Izzy and a yearly family trip. Even if it’s a stay-cation or weekend trip we want to get away.

With travel comes luggage. If you are searching for luggage I highly suggest you give L.L.Bean a look and here is why.

1. They make quality items.
2. They stand by their quality, they have a 100% customer satisfaction. There is not time limit on your satisfaction as most companies. For example if your bag ripped in the corner or the handle came off in 2 years of using, you can reach out to customer service or bring it in store and get your product replaced.
3. They are stylish and adorable for all! L.L. Bean makes luggage and bags in styles and sizes that I’m sure most everyone can find something they love.

Ready for my easy packing tip?

Roll everything up, take your jeans and fold them in half. Once folded you need to roll those suckers up!

Same with shirts, fold and roll! I also rolled my socks and stuck my underwear inside of them. Bring a plastic grocery bag to put your rolled dirty clothes into.

This is a 22″H x 12″W x 12″D size L.L.Bean bag.

In this Sportsman’s Rolling Gear bag (dimensions 22″H x 12″W x 12″D) I fit, 2 long sleeve dresses, 3 long sleeve tops, a sweatshirt, 2 pairs of jeans, 1 pair of leggings, 3 pairs of socks and underwear. I still have room for more, this means I can fix my toiletries (like a hair dryer, shaver, hair products, make up) and an extra pair of shoes!


Last tip, wear your boots or bulkiest shoes during travel and pack the smallest. I wrap my shoes in a plastic grocery bag so they don’t get other things dirty.

Happy Travels!
