Rule Number 1 – Pack out of the Suitcase
Before you start running around the house and throwing everything in your suitcase that might be at hand on vacation, take a deep breath and abandon this idea. Take everything you plan to take and put it in one place. You will see that you don’t need so many things. This is a simple trick will help you reduce the amount of unnecessary clothes that you would otherwise take with you by at least 3 times.
Rule Number 2 – Don’t Take Too Many Clothes
Majority of people take more things on the trip than they really need. This leads to the fact that you have to overpay for luggage, the suitcase weighs more than its owner of the suitcase, and all the clothes are rumpled. Every time you want to buy a new souvenir, you will have to think whether it will fit into your suitcase or not.
Rule Number 3 – Consider the Weather
Particularly resourceful people like to take clothes for all occasions, including storms, floods, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, and snowfall in the desert. If it is summer and you are flying to a hot country, you don’t need to take warm clothes at all.
Rule Number 4 – Roll the Clothes
Clothes should not be folded but rolled. This way, they will take up much less space and no creases appear on them. Most things from natural fabrics folded in this way can be put on, as soon as the suitcase is opened, nothing has to be ironed.
Rule Number 5 – Pack in Layers
The first layer on the bottom of the suitcase is shoes. All socks and underwear can be shoved in the shoes. This will save both the space and the shoes. After that, you can put jeans, sweaters, and other bulky clothes. The next layer is fragile items (bottles, perfume, etc.).
Then, put jackets, shirts, T-shirts, etc. Above you can put those clothes, which you for some reason decided not to roll but fold. The final touch is trivia such as belts, combs, and the like need to be pushed between the layers in the hollow places. This will help stabilize the entire structure. The belt twisted in a ringlet is the ideal way to prevent the collar of an expensive shirt from breaking.
