Pack Your Stuff The Right Way
First we folded. Then we rolled. Now it's time to bundle. This faster, easier packing technique, beloved by travel experts, is also a handy way to stow out-of-season clothes. Here's how to do it: Lay your most wrinkle-prone items—jackets, for instance—on a flat surface. Then layer the rest of your items faceup in alternating directions. Once you have your stack, stick something boxy (like old journals or a case of trinkets) in the center, then fold in each garment's loose ends (e.g., shirt sleeves, or the bottoms of long skirts) until you have a neatly packaged rectangle. Pop it in a storage container and seal; forget about it until next season.
