The easiest way to save money on pricy baggage fees is to travel light, but packing everything you need inside a tiny suitcase or a backpack isn’t easy. There are many packing hacks you can use to save both space and money, and we’re bringing you three, tried and tested by the people of the internet, that actually work.

Pillow Hack

The pillow hack became a viral sensation on TikTok and suggests you should stuff your clothes inside a travel pillow. Since even low-cost airlines allow you to bring a travel pillow on board, this hack is good to go, but it’s best to put extra items inside a neck pillow so you wouldn’t look too suspicious.

Rolling + Packing Cubes

One of the most popular packing hacks on the market suggests you should roll your clothes instead of folding them. This trick truly works and can save you a lot of space, but you should also consider using packing cubes to compress your clothes and keep them more organized.

Color Scheme

Planning your outfits in advance may seem like too much work, but it’s the best way to save room in your suitcase. Instead of packing a bunch of unnecessary items, try to pick a color scheme for your trip and only bring items that you can easily mix and match with the other ones.
