Pack smart for your summer adventure

Summer’s rapidly approaching and for a majority of Americans, that means vacation time. It’s estimated that nearly 60 percent of us will travel in the coming months, up from 51 percent last summer. Most travelers over pack and spend their vacation lugging around clothes and other items that are never used. For 5 smart packing tips, read on.

1. Tightly roll your clothes, don’t fold. This will save space and minimize wrinkles.
2. Pack shoes first, along the edges of your bag; then pack clothes to form a bottom layer.
3. Pack your lightest clothing on top.
4. Pack toiletries last for easy access.
5. Pack light. If in doubt, you probably won’t need it. Leave it behind.

Where will your summer travels take you?
