Section 1: Pack Hacks
Perfect your packing technique with these easy–to–execute tips.
Whenever possible, roll your clothing. This will minimize creasing and maximize space (and may even improve your DIY sushi technique).
A couple of dryer sheets tucked in your suitcase will give clothing a fresh–from–the–dryer scent upon arrival.
Keep business shirts crisp and meeting–ready by packing belts under the collars.
Employ disposable shower caps (available at most hotels) to separate dirty shoe soles from pristine garments.
Make every inch of your carry–on count by filling small empty nooks – tiny handbags, bra cups, boots – with stuffables like socks, underwear and gloves.
To keep food chilled for the trip, frozen sponges inside Ziploc bags are a security–approved alternative to ice packs.
Slip necklaces through plastic straws so you’re not wasting a minute – or an hour – untangling on the other end.
Secure a binder clip to the danger end of your razor to avoid dulling the blades and getting any accidental nicks.
Save hotel–room shampoo bottles from previous trips to stash all of your must–have creams and potions in carry–on–approved amounts.
