Use personal item wisely

Must know rules
Before packing you must get familiar with Transportation Security Administration rules. TSA allows liquids or gels as the subject 3-1-1 rules that is carry-on luggage. You should use the small size of stuff as compared to full size. Otherwise, TSA will likely confiscate your stuff.
Baggage fee policy
For any packing strategy, you have to figure out the luggage fee policies. Some of the airlines allow only one bag in international flight and charges are too high, so before packing you must be aware of the luggage fee.
Scale back on shoes
Do not carry an extra pair of shoes just because you think you can wear them on a particular occasion. Carry only two pairs of shoes and one slipper. You might have observed that most of the times you don’t get to wear even more than one shoe during your whole trip. Also, when packing, place shoes on the bottom of your edge right beside the edge to make the most out of the empty space.
Use packing aids
In terms of packing aids, there should be more packing items like Eagle Creek used for clothes into vacuum packed, which is quite tiny to fit in your bag. It takes minimum space. Another one is packing cubes so that you can organize your bag in a better way.
You should pack the dual-purpose items like jackets can be used as the pillow. Also, foldable shoes are lightweight, bendy and can be adjusted in the zippered carrying case. Use pants as shorts as well as the scarf as carts, which hold more items in pockets such as iPod, Wallet etc. Avoid packing tops for each bottom. Use two tops instead!
Put your toiletries and makeup in a different kit
To avoid leakage or safety of your private products, keep your makeup and toiletries in a transparent pouch. It can help to confine things and it will be easier for you to find the things without messing up your suitcase.
Capitalize on an empty space
Find the underutilized space; use that space such to put the socks and headphones under shoes. But make sure headphones should be kept safe. You can put your earphones and wires such as charger in a sunglasses case. Earphones and other clothing can also be placed on top of T-shirt and rolled up inside the shirt.
Wear it on
There is always some stuff that is too big to fit in a suitcase. If you can’t bear to part with that stuff, wear it, which will help you to reduce the size of your luggage. Make it a rule! Anytime you are traveling with a bulky item, wear it so you can use the extra room to fill in more essential items.
