The £18 travel item that is 'better than packing cubes' for getting more in your suitcase | The Sun

IF you struggle to fit everything in your suitcase when going on holiday, an £18 travel item has been praised for being a game-changer.

And some people have even said they are better than packing cubes.

Packing cubes are popular with holidaymakers as they keep your clothes organised in your luggage.

However, another item has been winning praise from travellers.

Vacuum cubes allow you to pack a lot more into your suitcase as it compresses your clothes and removes all of the air.

One set, created by Cosy Living, has been praised for being huge space-savers.

One woman wrote on Amazon: "Better than packing cubes."

"I have packing cubes and zip lock bags you squeeze the air out of and these are the best I've found."

However, these cost £18 in the US – and we've found similar ones in the UK that are much cheaper.

The Spacesaver Premium Vacuum Storage Bags are just £10.99 – and have had more than 120,000 reviews, with nearly 90,000 of them 5*.

One person wrote: "The space you save is incredible. We used half the suitcases we would normally use for holidays."

Another person commented:" Only needed two for both myself and husband's essentials for a two week holiday! Made plenty of room for other things in the suitcase."

A third agreed: " Used these in our suitcase for towels and toiletries. Really cut down on the bulk and kept everything leak proof."

TikToker Kayleigh Gawn revealed how she used vacuum cubes for a holiday to Las Vegas.

She said: "[Here] is the ultimate travel hack for those who are not light packers, but want to bring a carry on or fit more in their bag."

In the video, Kayleigh used a small white appliance, which she proceeded to plug into a bedside lamp.

She then opened the seal on her vacuum pack bags, turned on the appliance and used the gadget to take the air out of her vacuum pack bags.

One flight attendant was quick to praise the packing tip in the comments, saying: "I’m a Flight Attendant, thank you."
