How TO pack a suitcase to maximize space

Plan your outfits ahead

Use a travel packing list plan outfits and write down items that you'll need to cut down on packing extras.

Roll with the flow

Roll your clothes using the bundle technique to help maximize space and minimize wrinkles. Wrap  shirts at the center with bottoms as the outside layer.

Travel Bags & Packing Cubes

Compress your items in your suitcase using travel bags. These reusable labeled bags help keep your clothes compact and organized.

Keep in Flight Items Out

Save items that you'll need for in flight use for last so that you can easily reach and remove them.

Consolidate Shoes

Wear your bulky shoes and only pack 2-3 shoes, heel to toe at the bottom of your suitcase in a dust bag or shopping bag to protect clothes from dirt.

Don't Forget Your Pet!

If you're traveling with a pet, keep their essentials in a separate bag as well.
