How not to be a terrible packer

According to Sizwe Dhlomo, his #NightTalk co-host Gugs Mhlungu is not the greatest when it comes to planning.

He was vindicated in his view as Gugs struggled to get her packing done ahead of her holiday.

I mentioned that I'm in the process of packing. Packing I should have done days ago, ahead of me leaving today. But I hate packing. There are a few reasons for that, namely that I'm really bad at it and I'm the worst packer in the world

Gugs Mhlungu, #NightTalk co-host

Gugs described how she hates packing, and why she found herself once again packing her luggage for a holiday at the last moment.

This inspired Sizwe to find out more about how one can pack their luggage more easily and economically before traveling.

Fubbs says that it is important for people to pack light to have manageable luggage to and avoid additional costs when they check-in at the airport.

He spoke to Sizwe about how one can better pack their luggage and plan for a holiday.
