How to Pack Smart with eBags

Posted by

If you are like me, or like most people, you tend to over pack… am I right? You’re always thinking you need this outfit “just in case” or that outfit “just because”. Back in 2017, my family and I went to Europe for 24 days and I was able to manage packing in a carry-on bag all because of the company eBags (click HERE). We have been in love with this company for a few years and cannot wait to share why. Continue reading to find out more including: about the company, products, deals, eBags rewards, packing tips to use the most out of your eBags, and products we have and love!

PRODUCTS WE LOVE

We have never been disappointed with an eBags purchase. Our all time favorite product is their packing cubes (clikc HERE to go right to the page).

CUBES- The cubes allow for organization, convenience, and creativity each time you use them. I found myself using the same cube for so many different things each time I was preparing for a vacation. Below I will outline more information regarding each cube.  Be sure to check out all the color options!

Slim Size: 2.8 x 14 x 5 in.

Great for: undergarments, tee shirts, socks, and more.

Small Size: 3 x 11 x 6.75

Great for: Smaller or slimmer items such as tanks, undergarments, or even diapers. Remember, not only clothes have to go in here- get creative.

Medium Size: 3 x 13.5 x 9.75

Great for: ANYTHING, this is my favorite size as I will frequently separate shirts in one, pants/shorts in another, and undergarments for a longer trip. I have also used this size for bathroom items such as my hairbrush, straightener/curling iron, face wipes, toothbrush, etc- do you know how nice it is to have everything in 1 bag that you need in the bathroom. Going somewhere warm? Pack your flip flops in here.

Large Size: 3.25 x 17.5 x 12.75

Great for: Packing bulkier items. I love this for sweaters when I am traveling during the colder months or I will put my shirts on one side folded and my pants on the other. This can pack and hold a lot!

Here is a great value set but look around for sets that contain what you think will work best for you. If you do not know what size works best for you visit the website, click your bag of choice that you will be using for your trip, and let the website do the thinking. See the picture below.

* When you are not using your cubes, store them in each other for cleaner storage.

TLS MOTHER LODE WEEKENDER CONVERTIBLE- Our second favorite product is their TLS Mother Lode Weekender Convertible that comes in 2 sizes (and 9 colors!)- the convertible and convertible junior (we have the junior size). This bag easily holds enough for a 3-4 day trip, including toiletries… I don’t know how they do it! On top of the space for clothing and toiletries, you will also find a laptop pouch, a water bottle holder, and various straps depending on how you want to carry the bag.

This bag is perfect for a carry on but we have used it as our “personal item” even though it is slightly bigger than the requirements… especially with the expanding abilities.

Even our dog loves them! Nash has his own packing cube that we keep his items in if someone watches him. The medium cube fits his: blanket, 2 toys, medication, instructions for watching him, his leash, treats, a bandana, doggie bags, and more. Below is a picture as we were packing for our wedding in New York.

We hope you found this post helpful. If you have any questions regarding their products, reach out to their chat or send us a message. Let us know if you have any eBags products at home and what you love.
