As a Glastonbury Festival veteran (okay, this weekend will be my third time) I'm proud to say I know a thing or two about packing for a festival. If you're heading to Worthy Farm or perhaps you've got another big festival planned, you'll need my best hack.

You may currently be living with a huge pile of stuff on the floor wondering how you'll get your sleeping bag, all your clothes and toiletries and other essentials packed up. Fear not, I have the perfect solution for streamlined festival packing.

I can't remember where I first heard this trick, but I've sworn by it ever since. When packing your bag, group your outfits for each day within their own smaller bags, that way you can simply take out the bag you need for the day to save you endless rummaging. I literally bundle my underwear, clothes, accessories and jewellery together and put it all in the same small bag.

Pack one outfit per bag for ease

You can take it one step further and pack your other items in the same way, grouping together nightwear for example so all items are in an easy-to-retrieve bag.
