Get a Good Suitcase
You might think that this does not have much to do with packing, though you’d be wrong. A good suitcase can give you the advantage of being able to pack more, in a tighter space. This is because many new suitcase models have multiple compartments in them, that allow for you to store things in spaces that would have gone unused in older, more dated suitcase models.
In addition to this, a new suitcase is likely to be much more sturdy than something you’ve had for a couple of years. Baggage handlers aren’t the gentlest of people, and so if you want to make sure your belongings don’t get damaged, start with buying a strong and sturdy suitcase in the first place.

Failure to know this information could have you breaking some of the rules at the customs desk, forcing you to take out stuff, undoing all of the work you put into having a neatly packed suitcase.
