How to Pack the Perfect Carry-On Suitcase
As the weather starts to hint at the warmer days ahead, we’ve got our sights set on a weekend trip… or ten. And as you’ll learn in our book, Homemakers, we are firm believers that you can pack for anywhere between two and 10 days in a carry on. You just need to know a few simple tricks.
1. Instead of folding your clothes, roll ’em up! This is a more efficient use of space and still keeps your clothes relatively wrinkle-free.
2. Use shower caps as shoe bags. You don’t want all the dirt on your shoes getting all over your clothes.
3. Pack belts and socks inside your shoes. This helps shoes keep their shape and means you can fit more stuff in that little suitcase.
4. If you’re traveling with a curling iron or flat iron, bring a tea towel or pot holder to wrap it up. That way you don’t have to wait for it to cool down to pack your suitcase.
Be sure to pre-order Homemakers for over 1,000 tips and tricks for living more creatively, inside and outside the home.
