You’ve been unpacking from your trips all wrong – these ten tips will help you get it done efficiently

UNPACKING is an often dreaded task when returning home from a vacation.

However, one expert says she can make it a more efficient process by using any of her 10 tips.

"Instead of the usual tips for packing, here are some of my favorites for packing," a TikToker named Katie said at the top of a video she shared with her nearly 140,000 followers.

"First and foremost, do not bring your bag into your bedroom. 

"Instead of unpacking your clothes, you just pick them out of it," she said.

"Plus your bag is really dirty at this point."

Katie then advised people to bring their hamper to their luggage rather than the opposite and put all of their clothing in it.

"It’s usually not worth picking out what’s clean and what’s dirty," she noted.

For tip three, Katie said to allow "plenty of space" around your bag because instead of putting each item back into place individually, you should group them by room or type of item.

Therefore, you can put all your electronics back at once, bring your toiletries to the bathroom together, and so on.

"Once the bag is empty, take it, shake it upside down over a trash can, and double-check that it’s empty," she advised next.

She then said to place any luggage that has been "somewhere with a strong scent or with pets" outside to remove any lingering odors.

She also recommended searching through your luggage for any leftover receipts or tickets to avoid confusion on your next trip.

Bringing the conversation to toiletries and medicines, Katie said: "Make sure you have all your medication and put it back where you usually keep it. 

"For toiletries, I always make sure I check my plastic bags don’t have any holes in them before I save them."

Katie recommended checking your wallet to make sure your ID is where it needs to be, as it sometimes can get moved around while traveling.

Finally, she said to plug in all your electronics where they belong.

"Tomorrow you will thank [yourself] very much; I promise," she noted.

And as a bonus tip, Katie encouraged people to hydrate and relax after they've completed their unpacking mission.

Of course, if you need tips for packing, there's plenty of those as well.

Another TikToker shared his four packing rules he always follows to save money and get the best use out of his luggage space.
