They are the small part of packing you’ve probably gone many years without.
Fold clothes and pack them as neatly as possible for the trip out, the on the return journey — just stuff everything in as quickly as possible.
But in the era of Marie Kondo, when we all want a level of organisation in our lives, packing for travel no longer needs to be a scrambled mess.
The rise of packing pouches essentially helps travellers group certain items in soft pods so your suitcase remains organised.
While some of these pouch packs can be expensive, Aldi has dropped a cheap alternative that’ll cost you less than a McDonald’s Double Big Mac Meal.
The Aldi 6-pack packing pouches come in an array of colours and sizes, with blue, pink, grey and white all options on sale.
Each set of six comes with every bag you will need for a fully organised suitcase.
There’s a large 45cm bag for your denim, a medium 35cm bag for your shirts and Ts, a smaller bag for underwear, a shoe bag, a carry bag for toiletries and ever a pouch for any electrical leads or chargers.
The Special Buys travel sale, which launches today, also has an array of suitcases and other travel-related items perfect for your summer holiday now that both domestic and international trips are back on.
For $99, the premium two-part set comes in either black or grey. The large case, which measures 70cm and weight just 3.75kg, as well as the small case — slightly smaller at 58cm and weighing 2.7 kg.
For those who hate travelling with a bundle of different cords, the Universal Travel Adaptor will have your tech-headache solved.
The $14.99 device means is suitable for use in 150 countries, including 4 interchangeable travel adaptors to be used in Australia, EU, UK/HK and US/Japan.
