Packing Tips: How to Maximize Space and Minimize Clothing Wrinkles

Packing a travel bag is often a challenge for most people.  It is so easy to select clothes, shoes, accessories, and other things you want to bring with you on your trip. What’s difficult is getting all those things neatly packed in your bags. Plus, there’s also the important matter of staying within your baggage limit.

There are two things that travelers often worry about when it comes to their luggage. First, will they have enough room in their bags for everything they want to bring? Second, how can they keep their clothes from getting too wrinkled?

Unfortunately, not everyone knows how to fold clothes properly or where to tuck specific items inside a luggage bag. Most travelers would end up paying for excess baggage and lugging around more bags than they can handle. They don’t know how to pack their bags properly so that there will be room for everything. They also have no choice but to wear wrinkly clothes by the time they arrive at their destination.

Here are several packing tips that travelers should take note of so that they don’t encounter the problems above:

Folding Clothes

The easiest way to pack clothes that need to be hanged (ex: gown, business suit) is to use one of those luggage cases/chests that open in half to reveal hanging compartments. If you don’t have this kind of case, you can use large, dry-cleaner bags. Carefully fold the outfit just once or twice, enough to fit in your luggage, and put it in the bag. Squeeze out as much air as you can.

For t-shirts, you can either do the same thing as above or do the rolling technique. Rolling, when done properly, can minimize the wrinkles in your clothes. It works this way: fold in the sleeves of the t-shirts and then fold the entire shirt lengthwise. Pile two or three on top of each other, smooth out the wrinkles, then start rolling from one end. Some would no longer fold the shirt lengthwise and would instead pile four or five shirts before rolling them together. Jeans work the same way. Fold and smooth out the pant legs on top of each other before rolling.

For blouses, tank tops, skirts and polo shirts, you can fold them the traditional way and place three or four in one Ziploc or dry-cleaner bag. Again, let out the air and keep it as flat as possible.

Fold socks into a ball and roll up your scarves. These will serve as space fillers later when you put everything in your bag.

Now for shoes, don’t put them in boxes because unless absolutely necessary for their shape and make. That being said, it is important that you only bring a few pairs that you’ll really need. Wrap each show individually with plastic bags or wrapping paper so that they don’t snag or stain your exposed clothes.

Stow all your toiletries in one bag. If you’re traveling by plane, make sure to check the security restrictions on liquids kept in bottles. Also, make sure all plastic bags you use are transparent so that security officers won’t have to turn your bag inside-out.


Open your luggage bag completely and lay it on the floor. The first things that should go in are the folded and plastic-wrapped clothes. Place them right at the center and leave some space at the bottom because your toiletries, shoes, and other heavier items will go there. Insert the rolled t-shirts and jeans along the sides. The socks and scarves will go to the empty spaces in corners and in between the clothes. You can do the same with flat shoes and slippers.

The secret in keeping clothes wrinkle-free as much as possible is to keep them from moving too much within the bag. This is why everything must be tightly packed, leaving no space unoccupied.
