Whether you absolutely hate packing, or you're pulling out outfits for a forthcoming trip with glee, we've all been in that position where no matter how you fold, stuff, or push you've just packed too darn much. We're all for making traveling as easy as possible, so with that in mind we've got a few tips & tricks for packing light and avoiding overpacking mishaps.
One of Each
This is truly the golden rule. We promise you, even if you're a jeans fiend, you don't need 3 pairs of black jeans. When at all possible, keep your packing to one item of each.
Roll or Fold?
Ah, the eternal question. While we wish we could give you a definitive answer, the truth is--it depends! Certain items, like t-shirts, are better rolled. While others, like jeans or pants, benefit from a flat fold.
These are a god-send, particularly if you're packing any kind of oversized sweater that takes up a lot of air. To keep it extra simple, buy the kind that don't require a vacuum.
If You Question it...
If you question whether or not you're going to wear a particular shirt, dress, or pair of shoes chances are you won't. When in doubt, leave it at home.
