As much as we travel, I was excited when TravelWise asked me if I would like to take a look at their Packing Cubes. I love the idea of being able to just take the Cubes out of my suitcase and put them in the drawer at the hotel or on a cruise ship.
When I received the Cubes, I was surprised at how light and compact they were. The smaller and larger Cubes fit inside the medium one for storage.
I couldn't imagine that I would get that much in them, but was I so wrong! In the smallest Cube, I packed underwear for five days, two bras, a white and black Spanx to wear with dresses (don't judge) and two camisoles. I still have a little room, so I will add socks and a pair of tights for wearing in the evening with my little black dress.
In the medium sized Packing Cube I packed six shirts, a bathing suit, and my cover-up.
In the largest Cube I was able to fit four pair of shorts, two pair of capri pants, and I still have plenty of room! I want to take an extra bathing suit, so I'll pack that in this one.
The next test was to see how all three Cubes fit in my suitcase.
I have plenty of room for my toiletries and a pair of sandals on the side, and this is without the expansion zipper unzipped. Once I add that room, I can place shoes right on top. I usually put my shoes in a bag, but I won't need to because my shoes won't be touching my clothes.
Finally, I thought I'd see how the Cubes fit in my dresser drawer. This drawer is actually a lot smaller than the drawer I had on our recent cruise, and I was able to just slide the small and medium Cubes right in. Just unzip and the Cubes can stay right in the drawer! The larger Cube was a little wide, but again, would be a perfect fit for a hotel drawer and on the cruise with Carnival in April. I can also toss my dirty clothes right back into the Cubes for traveling home. The Cubes are hand washable in cold water.
I like that my clothes are contained and feel like they'll stay nicer in the compact Cubes. I highly recommend the TravelWise Packing Cubes, and I'm betting my family is going to be asking for their own Cubes once they see how easy they make packing and unpacking!
