It’s Packing Week! Travel season is here, and I’m letting you in on all of my packing strategies. People often take one look at my luggage and tell me I can’t possibly have packed enough for my trip, no matter how long or short. They ask me how I do it, and now I’m sharing my secrets with you!
Packing Strategy 1: Roll with It
Rolling is by far the best trick I’ve learned in all my years of packing! I read about it in an American Girl Magazine when I was probably 11 or 12, and I’ve been doing it ever since–even in my drawers at home! My older brother used to bring his friends into my room to show them my unbelievably organized drawers of rolled up clothes. Seriously though, rolling will you save so much space, and you’ll see that your rolled clothes will be less wrinkled than folded clothes. This is your step by step rolling tutorial, Quick Whit style. Let’s start from the bottom up!
They may be unmentionable, but you definitely need to pack them!

Now, you’re ready to pack! Basically, no matter what shape it is starting out, do your best to make it a rectangular or square and roll it as tightly as possible. You can also use tissue paper or a plastic dry cleaner’s bag to roll with it for even more wrinkle protection.
