Hành trang du lịch - bạn sẽ chất chứa những ǵ trong một va-li hành lư xách tay để đủ dùng trong một tháng.
Carry-on size (22” x 14” x 9” = 45”)
     –> 
2 pairs of shoes + (under-wears, undergarments, socks, belt, ties, roll-up T-shirts)            + 4 pants + 2 skirts (or 1 pyjamas) + 9 shirts + 1 light jacket -

Step One
 
Put two pairs of shoes in the suitcase with the flats of the shoes up against the sides.  Place our rolled organizer or your favorite pouch full of undergarments, socks, nylons, ties, scarves, belts, crushable hats, nighties, and the miscellaneous in-between the shoes.

Step Two
 
With the pant legs together place the waistband of the first pair of pants up against the end of the suitcase.   Place the next pair of pants in the opposite direction and continue to alternate the direction of pants.  Remember to use the length of the suitcase for the long and narrow pants.

Shorts go on top of the pants in the middle of the bag with the legs together.

Step Three
 
Ladies can lay their skirts across the top utilizing the width of the suitcase.  Place the middle of the skirt in the middle of the bag.  You do not need to alternate the direction of skirts and dresses.

Next, place full length dresses across the top of your luggage using the width of the bag.

Step Four
 
Now pack the tops.  The first top lays on the width of the bag with the collar up against the side of the suitcase and the tail of the garment hanging out.  The shirt sleeves hang out where the pant legs are.

The rest of the tops should be placed down in alternating directions and stacked on top of each other.  Place the collars up against the sides with the sleeves and shirt tails laid out.

Once you have all of your garments laid out on the bag it is time to fold the clothes back into the suitcase.  You must believe the approximately fourteen garments will fit into the bag.  Do not give up!

Take the tail and sleeves of the shirt second from the top, and fold it over the top shirt.   Next, fold the top shirt's tail and sleeves over that shirt.  You have now intertwined the top two shirts and are starting to form your bundle.

Continue this folding method, working your way back down into the bag one shirt at a time.  Notice in illustration 4D the last top folding over the shirt bundle.

After you are finished bundling the tops, the bag should look like illustration 4E.

Step Five
 
Next, fold in the dresses and skirts by rolling them over the existing shirt bundle.

Once the dresses and skirts are "bundled-up", fold the pant legs over each end of the bundle.

Step Six
 
Stand back and look at your creation.  You have successfully packed an incredible amount of clothes in a relatively small space.   Plus, your clothes look terrific and wrinkle less because there are no creases in the garments.  The reason, when clothes are folded or rolled over an existing bundle they cushion one another.

After packing and un-packing for several days, you may ask:
I'm tired of digging into the bundle.  What if I want that shirt in the middle?

Leave a minimum of two shirts and two pants out of the original bundle.  Before you cinch the first bundle down, lay out two pairs of pants in opposite directions like you have done before.  Place two shirts on the pants in opposite directions and now create a mini bundle by folding them over one another.  Now you have the next several days of tops and bottoms on top of the original bundle so you won't have to dig into the bundle every day.  

Keep in mind that you can adapt our PackingLight system to pack several bundles according to outfits too.   The great thing about our decades-old method is the bundles maintain their shape and you can pull them out to get to the shoes and organizer.  When you are done place the bundles back in the bag and cinch everything down again./.
