Have been reading up more about packing cubes. (Mesh packing cubes from Magellan's shown right.)
One really good case FOR them is that when your bags are searched by airport officials, they don't mess everything up so much, because they can simply take out the cubes and put them each through the scanner.
I reckon that even though we use Doug Dyment's wonderful clothes packing method, the whole bundle could still be put into a packing cube to keep them neatly bundled.
I DO like the idea of everything being nicely sectioned off, so that all the little things don't fall to the bottom of the luggage. I'm really getting close to wanting to try them.
Now, I wonder if they could help me organise my office and keep it nice and tidy...?! Maybe that's going a bit far...
