- Prepare a packing list

The last time I travelled far, I started preparing my luggage more than a week earlier. Actually, it was a camping trip with my friends but the same applies for normal trips. You need to prepare adequately for it so that you won’t be forgetting any important thing in the course of the journey.

- Roll your clothes rather than fold them

I learnt this from my friend. I think around two years ago when I wanted to travel to Ogwashi-Uku in Delta State, I wanted to go with only my laptop backpack with all my clothes packed inside, but it refused to accommodate my bag no matter how hard I tried, then I had to roll the clothes and boom, all entered and a little space was still remaining.

We all know that our footwears like contribute a lot to our luggage. You should put on a comfortable pair of shoes, preferably sneakers like Nike air force 1 high and also pack no more than what you need. This is to prevent any extra charges especially when you are travelling by air.

- Reduce the cans

Imagine putting a can of talcum powder, a jar of cream, your body spray, perfumes and even your bottle of hair-cream inside one bag, then you'll have to get an extra bag so your loads can be accommodated.

Booking your flights early enough not only saves you the stress of having to rush things, but are also cheaper. It will also help you to know the weather ahead in your destination and know how to prepare for them better.

- Leave everything that will not be essential

Yess oo... even I are guilty of this. If you are travelling with a partner, why not take a laptop rather than the two you guys have? Even laptops are not so necessary as most smartphones can do whatever they do for you nowadays. It's same for any other luggage, drop those extra pairs of shoes, cardigans, suits and even food if you are not going to make use of them.

- Avoid carrying your valuables around

Also, another great tip, avoid carrying your valuables around because pickpockets can be anywhere. Your documents, jewellery, expensive gadgets, clothes and even money should be kept in your lodge.

- Use your shoes to stash some of your items

Some items like stockings and handkerchiefs can fit well into your shoes, why not take that as an advantage? Pack them into your shoes and save the extra space they should have consumed for another item.

- Be nice and polite
