Lay Everything Out On the Floor

Make sure that you lay everything out on the floor then take a look at it and take about a third of the stuff out. We all know that you are not going to use everything you pack so why overpack? The only things that you should overpack are socks and underwear.

Find a Good Bag

You have to make sure that you find a good bag. I personally like duffle bags because they make the perfect carry on. It is important that you don’t cheap out on a duffle bag, make sure that you invest in a good quality bag so that you don’t end up embarrassed at the airport.

The bag that I personally recommend is one from Rogue Industries. This bag will run you about $150 but it is a very good price for the quality of this bag. This bag is water resistant and it has a whole bunch of space. It has a ton of side pockets, where you can put your wallet, cable, or snacks. This bag comes with a two-year warranty where if the bag gets damaged within the two years Rogue Industries will replace it at no cost or issue a refund. You know that if a company offers such a good warranty it is because they stand behind their product. The best thing about Rogue Industries is that they also offer wallets. These wallets come in the shape of your front pocket so that you can put it in your front pocket and make it more difficult to steal.

Roll Up Your Socks and Put them in Your Shoes

You have to make sure that you use up your space as efficiently as possible. One of the best ways to do this is to roll up your socks and put them in your shoes. This will help you use up all of the space that you have and it will also help your shoes keep their shape. Make sure you wrap your shoes in shower caps to keep the rest of your clothes clean.

Bundle Wrapping

Bundle wrapping will help you reduce bulk and it keeps everything in a bundle. Get all of your shirts, shorts, pants, and t-shirts together, if you have any dress shirts pull them out for now because we will pack them later. If you have a suit jacket or a sweater go ahead and place it face down and vertically, grab any collar shirts and put them on top but opposite of the first sweater. All the shirts will go vertically and all of the pants will go horizontally, then change between them, one going up and the other one going down after you’ve finished with that put your underwear in the middle and start wrapping everything together nice and tight.

Once you are done with that, grab your dress shirt and fold it as you normally would then just put your belt on the collar to make sure that the collar maintains its shape.

Thanks for reading and make sure to let us know which hack you use when you’re packing!
