We have previously shared advice on packing mix-and-match outfits to save room and reduce the amount of clothes you pack, but it is still tempting to cram our bags full. Recently one of us took a 10 day trip and packed 4 outfits that were never worn. We’ll protect the guilty, but it’s a good reminder that even seasoned travelers struggle to keep with the minimum and not pack for every worse case scenario.
Rolling clothes is definitely our favorite way to keep items visible (like packing vertically versus layering clothes on top of one another). This helps you remember what you have added to your bag to increase the chances you pick more items to mix and match. It also helps the clothes arrive at your destination less wrinkled.
