Organizing & Caring For Your Suitcases

Traveling and owning beautiful, handmade luggage used to be a luxury reserved for the wealthy. But times have changed, and traveling has become more accessible, making suitcases more widely available for purchase.

Gone are the days when you could only purchase high-priced luggage from fancy department stores. Now, inexpensive options can be found in many places, but as the saying goes, “You get what you paid for.” So, whether you splurged on high-quality, brand-name suitcases or opted for a more budget-friendly option, it’s important to take care of them for long-lasting use.

As summer comes to an end and you settle back into your routine, it’s time to start putting things away. But before you toss your suitcases into the depths of your basement or garage, give them some much-needed TLC.

Organizing tips to care for your suitcases

Vacations can be exhausting, and the last thing you want is to come home and deal with damaged or dirty luggage. So, before you store them away, follow this simple checklist:

  1. Check for any “leftovers” – you might even find some special memories from your last trips!
  2. Inspect for spills, damaged wheels or handles, and torn fabric to ensure your suitcases are safe for carrying all your cute outfits and treasured finds on your next adventure.
  3. If you use travel accessories such as clothing organizers, totes, or toiletries, wash and thoroughly dry them before storing them. Check the labels for specific laundry instructions.

Take note of any repairs or replacements that need to be made and plan accordingly. Department and specialty stores often have sales on travel gear at the end of summer, so keep an eye out for deals if you need to replace any damaged suitcases.

Now that your luggage is in top shape relax and start dreaming about your next vacation!
