Finally your vacation is here, but the thought of packing all this
0:07
into this is freaking you out. Stress-free travel starts with smart packing.
0:13
And while you probably already know that rolling your clothes saves space, take this trick
0:17
to a new level with this FOLD and roll technique. The key is to create even layers and maximize
0:22
every inch. Start with the bulkiest items. Stuff shoes
0:32
with small items like resealable plastic bags filled with socks and underwear. Then, place
0:40
individual shoes along the edges of the case. Belts can also be laid along the edge.
0:48
Fill in gaps with the smallest rolls of clothing- things like t-shirts and camisoles.
0:52
Larger items like jeans, jackets and dresses should then be laid in flat layers, and packed
0:57
in an overlapping layer formation. If there are gaps around the edges, take these flat-laying
1:02
clothes and tuck them into the sides. A bonus tip for blazers and other lined clothing
1:08
is to pack them inside out, to help avoid wrinkles.
1:12
You’re doing great so far with light, space-saving packing, so don’t get weighed down by toiletries
1:16
and other extras! Save empty travel-size bottles to refill and
1:21
use on trips over and over again. This saves space and time, and is good for the environment.
1:30
To avoid leaks and spills in your suitcase, place a square of plastic wrap over the bottles
1:34
before closing the cap. Empty prescription bottles are also great
1:45
for things like cotton swabs. An old contact case can be put to great use,
1:53
from storing small supplies of foundation and other makeup, to little necessities, like
1:58
safety pins. Keep delicate jewelry secure and tangle-free
2:05
by laying them out onto a sheet of press n seal plastic wrap. Place another sheet on
2:11
top, then seal, roll, and pack away somewhere safe.
2:25
A great tip for keeping earrings together is to secure them through the holes of a button.
2:32
This way, they can be tossed into your cosmetic bag and still be super easy to find!
2:39
Finally, ditch the heavy stacks of books and magazines and go digital! Loading titles onto
2:46
your tablet or smart phone will save paper, money, and most importantly, your shoulders!
2:53
If all these great tips still haven’t lightened your load, remember — you can always sneak
3:00
the heavy stuff into your travel partner’s bag!
