Lo & Sons OG Bag Packing for three days

Yes, I packed ALL of that in the OG bag from Lo & Sons. I thought about taking a carry on suitcase for my 3 day trip to NYC, but I am also in my early 30s and my definition of fun is a packing challenge. I think I won this round! Here's everything that went into my beautiful the OG bag —

So how did I do it? You've heard this everywhere so it's not really a secret. The best way to save space when you pack? PACKING CUBES! I used a medium sized cube to pack all the clothes. All the toiletries went in a clear packing cube. I stuffed everything else around those two. 

The shoes went in the special shoe compartment. I wore a pair of sandals to the airport, and switched to the shoes while on the plane (because I would like my toes to not freeze as soon as I step out in cold, cold NYC thankyouverymuch). 

Overall, I am super pleased with how the OG did! I would def use it again for travel that lasts 2-3 days.
