How to Pack, Save Space, Prevent Wrinkles and have a Safe Luggage
Use these packing techniques to ensure that clothes will come out of your bag looking as presentable and as safe as possible. Read on....
  • Lay your suitcase flat, fully opened
  • Actually, there are only two things to remember when packing your luggage. Folding and rolling...or lay over as you deem fit. Period (.)
  • Remember that folded clothes are less likely to wrinkle but take more space
  • Remember that rolled clothes will wrinkle if done loosely. Roll it tightly and you surely save space
  • Fit rolled socks and undergarments into your shoes, then place the shoes at the bottom of the bag
  • Pack garments in plastic dry-cleaner bags or put layers of tissue paper between them
  • Lay long items such as slacks and dresses across the bags with the ends hanging over the sides
  • Place shorter pieces like shirts and blouses in the centre, then fold the ends of the longer garments back over them
  • If you have breakable or fragile items that you don't want in your carry-on bag, place them also at the centre of your check-in baggage on top of the heavy roll layer to protect them
  • Fill in corners with rolled underwear, rolled socks and rolled leggings.  Roll up also, garments such as pajamas and sweaters so that they fit along the sides
  • Put your suit and trousers lie flat at the very top of your luggage. Fold or put the sleeves on top, cover and fit the garterized belt
  • Make sure you can easily identify your luggage. Tie a ribbon, pom-pom or something that will make it stand out from others that look like yours
  • I use garter belt tied around my luggage for two reasons. One, to protect my bag from opening due to pressure. Two, I can easily spot my luggage in the baggage claim conveyor.
