Will you be over the weight limit? Can you fit everything in your suitcase? Have you forgotten something? These are all questions which flood through your mind while going through the motions of filling your bags with holiday essentials.

However have no fear, Kmart is here to save the day again with this $9 item – packing cubes.

For just under $10 you get a three cubes – small, medium and large – and some travellers have said it’s changed the packing game for them.

“I took this travel opportunity to use the $9 packing cubes and I have to say, I am gobsmacked,” the woman who runs a Kmart Styling Facebook page said, according to the Daily Mail Australia.

“So impressed with how much I can fit in my suitcase using them.”

Readers of Escape also shared their excitement over the cubes revealing they keep everything in their suitcases organised and, even better, they save space.

“It’s amazing how much more you can fit in your bag doing this,” one said. “The best part is you can easily get out what you want by unpacking the cube you need.”

“On a recent trip I used packing cells for the first time,” another explained. “My suitcase has never been so neat, compact and organised.”

Don’t mind us, we’re just popping to Kmart now to make sure we don’t miss out on this bargain.
