Weekly Travel Tip – A New Packing Method

I have traveled a lot, which means a lot of luggage carrying and it is never easy. The clothes always get wrinkled and it seems like you never have enough room for it. So to make it all simpler I use the ‘Interweaving Packing Method’. And I thought you might want to use it while packing on your next vacation, this is how it goes:

Drape longer garments (pants and dresses) across the suitcase, with the ends hanging over the sides. Then, fold smaller items like jackets, shirts, and blouses around the longer garments. The clothes will cushion each other, and by placing a piece of tissue paper in between each layer of clothing, it will prevent wrinkling.

Another useful tip is to avoid packing any travel documents and medication in luggage you plan to check. These items, along with any camera, should be in your carry-on luggage, so they are accessible to you at any time.
