Packing cubes help you organize your luggage when traveling, meaning the days of throwing your clothes and other items into a suitcase willy-nilly are over. Now, you’ll know where everything is, and they even come in different sizes to not only suit your needs but also help you remember which cube has which belongings in it.
In addition to the cube set recommended by Oprah Daily, some great packing cube options include Shacke Pak’s 5 Set Packing Cubes, Away’s The Insider Packing Cubes, and eBags’ Light 5Pc Packing Cubes (via Travel + Leisure). These options are highly rated and range in price so that you can find the right cubes at the right price point for you.
The New York Times also tested packing cubes over four years to find the best sets that stand the test of time. They found sets like Eagle Creek’s Pack-It Specter Cube Set, Eagle Creek’s Pack-It Cube Set Packing Organizer, and REI’s Co-op Expandable Packing Cube Set. While all three options were found to be great, one set stood above the rest. “After testing 18 sets of popular packing cubes over four years, we still think the Eagle Creek Pack-It Original Cube Set is the best choice for most travelers, due to its simple yet functional design and excellent build quality,” the outlet’s reviewers, Jack Chance and Kit Dillon explained.
No matter which one you choose, investing in some travel cubes this year — or any time in the future — is definitely a smart choice.
