The ULTIMATE list of packing resources

I’m a terrible packer. Horrible. Which is why I’m constantly browsing the web, searching for better ways to do it, ready-made check lists and hacks to make the whole process easier. This is also why you’ll NEVER come to and find advice on how to pack your carry-on, what to pack for Greece and so on. The closest I’ll ever come is linking to this video, which is literally me in a nutshell.

Ultimate list of packing resources

But, as I am hosting a $140 Laptop BackPack giveaway over on Facebook this week (edit: CLOSED), I decided to do some research on how to become a better packer. I’ve come across an insane amount of helpful posts, tips and tricks, and have decided to share them all in this ultimate list of resources!


I hope you’ll find some of these helpful, because I know I have!
