Ebags has many items 25% off including the One I use EVERY TIME I pack.

Several years ago my mom gave me a gift, one that I initially thought was silly and I’d never use: Ebags packing cubes. This is the thing. Ebags packing cubes have made my life SO MUCH SIMPLER. I always know where my socks, underwear, t-shirts, medicine, etc etc are located in my suitcase. They also make UNPACKING WAY EASIER because all of the items are perfectly segregated in your suitcase. GONE are my days of MESSY PACKING and the stress that come with it. Here’s the best part: Ebags 25% off sale included Ebags Packing cubes and that means you can enjoy STRESS FREE packing and unpacking to make your vacation more enjoyable. Don’t believe me? Check out these photos

This is how I normally travel

I travel with a Hartmann herringbone roller and my Tumi Alpha Bravo Knox Backpack. Both have served me very well. In fact, I’m a long time Hartmann user and even have some of their tweed and leather goods. Anyways…what I fill them with is what we’re talking about 🙂


I use Ebags packing cubes every time I travel. Yes, even without a checked bag.

 I sometimes wrap my shoes in a plastic bag next to my Ebags packing cubes.


I also roll my clothes prior to putting them in the Ebags packing cubes.


I purchased the Eagle Creek “No Matter What” duffel bag before going on safari in 2015. I’ve used it so many times since. Unfortunately it’s not 25% off right now, but still very useful.

If I’m on a trip where I know I’ll be buying items then I throw the “No Matter What” duffel bag into my suitcase. It takes up a little space, but it unfolds into a HUGE DURABLE BAG that is perfect for carrying on or checking.

Further proof that I don’t embarass easily and also use The No Matter What duffel. What’s up Wisconsin!
