In Minimalism

The Art of Packing

I will come right out and admit I am not a fan of Louis Vuitton (the brand, not the guy who started it 😉 ).

Let’s just say the print I find the least hideous is the grey and ivory Damier Azur Check print:

I am however, impressed with how professional this luxury juggernaut is (French, mais oui), and I admire the way they run the company from a marketing and business perspective.

(Seriously awesome brand recognition.)

I am also a huge fan of traveling and packing, and LV has come up with 3 pretty impressive online videos entitled: The Art of Packing.

(Hat tip to LifeHacker!)

Sure, it’s a way to sell their LV stuff (I told you they were slick!), but if you go through the 3 guides, the advice they have given is extremely practical.

(I will note that the advice flies by too fast, and you’ll have to keep your paws on the Pause button to read the advice… 😛 )*

I also like that they show you how to fold each item.

The only piece of advice they provide that is irrelevant is asking you to pack your toiletry bag at the bottom of your suitcase.

Good in theory, bad at execution.

If your bag has liquids or gels in it over 100mL, you NEED to put it on top so you can access it during security checks.

But then again… maybe if you own a LV suitcase, you’re so rich, you don’t need to worry about that kind of plebian thing because you’d be on your own private jet 😉

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    lol this was such a cute little video. I like their denim bags, I’m not fond of the brown prints either, I guess I’ve gotten used to it over the years. Personally I prefer J. Crew suitcases, if I had enough money to buy an expensive suitcase it would be J.Crew and not LV. This is the one I’d buy. 

    1. Mochi & Macarons

      That one looks nice but I find those hard case suitcases so impractical for constant traveling.
      If I didn’t have to carry my own bags then YES 🙂

    Not necessarily… If you’re checking in the luggage, you don’t need it ontop. It’s good to have it at the bottom. That being said,I think most people know heavy things go at the bottom. It’s just common sense. Although I do like SEEING what people pack… Maybe I should do a pack post myself. Hmm.

    1. Mochi & Macarons

      Do a pack post!!

      Their stuff was duffel bags and stuff so it made me think it was a carryon and not checked bags…..
      But you’re right!

      I just never check anything in if I can help it. I get really paranoid…
