Ready to take a road trip? Careful planning and packing are the only ways to ensure a carefree time with your loved ones. To make your time on the road more of an epic adventure and less of a misadventure, JCPenney has carefully curated all the vacation essentials you will need. We have also put together a video with some amazing, space-saving packing hacks. Watch the video and follow the step-by-step tips to pack with ease.
Tip 1: Roll Outfits Together
Rolling your clothes is superior to folding. If your clothes are tightly rolled, they will not only take up less space than folded ones but also be less prone to getting deep wrinkles from fold creases.
Tip 2: Fill Shoes with Small Items
Another great way to pack smart is filling small items like socks or travel-size toiletries in shoes.
Tip 3: Store Hot Tools in an Oven Mitt
You may need hot tools like flat irons and curling irons minutes before heading out, and it could still be warm. So, it’s clever to wrap them in an oven mitt. Plus, a padded oven mitt will prevent the hot tools from damage while traveling.
Tip 4: Plastic Bag for Wet Shoes and Suits
Keeping plastic bags handy helps carry wet clothes and sandy shoes from the beach. They will help ensure your car stays clean and dry.
Tip 5: Bring a Hostess Gift
If you are staying with someone for the weekend or attending a holiday event at your cousin’s home, you need to show gratitude by bringing something to your hosts. It could be a spa basket, gift card, or wine basket. You can find them all at JCPenney at great low prices.
