How To Pack A Suitcase
Packing clothes and other accessories in a suitcase is a chore you cannot do without when you are going to travel. Most of us just fold all the clothes and pile them one on top of the other inside a suitcase, in no particular order.
Experts say there are more efficient ways of packing a suitcase.
Heather Poole, a flight attendant from Los Angeles, demonstrates how to pack enough for a 10-day trip into a single standard carry-on.
There are two efficient ways of packing clothes into a suitcase.
If you have lots of clothes to pack in a suitcase,
- Tightly roll all the clothes individually one at a time. This minimizes wrinkling.
- Shoes go first – Pack them along the edges of the bag.
- Then begin putting in jeans and pants to form the bottom layer of clothing.
- Continue with lighter clothes, forming more layers, packing garments tightly.
- The lightest items are reserved for last, and should make up the top layer of clothing.
- Toiletries and clutch go on top.
For shorter trips when the number of clothes are less. And you need to keep the clothes wrinkle free.
- Dress clothes and uniforms are placed along the bottom and left hanging out either side. Eg Pants, Jeans etc.
- Clothing for which wrinkles are less of a concern is placed in the middle of the bag, followed by toiletries and other items.
- Finally, the dress clothes are carefully folded over the top.
