Packing cubes are brilliant, so helpful at organising and space saving. We have a few sets in different sizes. They are a packed away in our cases but I think they are e-bag and eagle creek ones

Amazon basics are good. They have several packages available, with different sizes. DH & I use different colours, so easy when we share a suitcase for a short trip.

Amazon basics here too- one colour per family member.

I use vacuum bags rather than packing cubes

Thank you, will check out the ones on Amazon.

I was recommended the ones from Wilkos on here and I've been really pleased with them. The set of 3 fits perfectly in my cabin suitcase.

We have a few sets now of varying sizes. I just but from Amazon.
I never pack cases without.

I recommend the Amazon ones. Plus folding the Kondo way to give even more space

Sorry to hijack but could somebody explain how they work/what the benefits are?

We are going away at Easter and trying to get away with one case between 2A & 2C so need to be smarter in packing

I find them quite restrictive when trying to fit lots into a case tbh. I usually roll the clothes and play Tetris with them.

I would definitely look into compression packing cubes. The standard ones are helpful for organising if that is what you want. But compression ones have a double zip which has the effect of squishing and compacting clothings so you can fit more in your bag. There are many on amazon, I would choose based on reviews. Just be careful if you are flying, as you can fit more in your case the risk of having an overweight bag increases.

I love them! Mine are ikea but they are all similar. Amazon have some good ones but I like the standard soft zip around ones.

The tiny ones are a bit useless so I'd go for the medium/larger sizes. I also always use one as a washing bag for bringing washing home 😊

We are going to SA in April and will be travelling around a bit so will not really be unpacking whilst away. We travelled around Vietnam last year and I got really fed up constantly rummaging through the (shared with DH) suitcase hence the need for the packing cubes this year😂

I use these dry bags - they work well both in backpacks and the more traditional suicases

Different sizes work great and also useful for keeping clean and dirty clothes. Also rolling the clothes keeps creases to a minimum.

We have gonex compression ones and they're good

The compression ones definitely save space we went away last year 2 adults and 2 children with one suitcase. Basically you roll clothes put in bag and then there is a zip to squash it down. Also good for taking out once there and placing in different rooms/ packing up dirty stuff as you go so a lot of the packing gets done as you go along rather than having to do it in one go.
