Expert Packer Manages To Stuff Enough Supplies In A Suitcase To Travel For A Year

Ana is an Associate Editor who loves animals and food. A good taco and a snuggle with her dogs is all she needs.

I’ve been flying on airplanes for nearly two decades, but only last year did I stop checking a bag and started exclusively using carry-on luggage.

Checked bags cost a fortune! Airlines act like they are giving you a deal if they say that the first checked bag is only $25. Remember when it was free and they gave you food for free, too?

If you’re like me and have vowed to never check a bag again, then you need to watch Rachel Grant’s packing video. She manages to squeeze 100 items into a tiny carry-on bag!

These items aren’t just small travel products, either. She transfers an entire rolling rack of clothing into her carry-on luggage. She is my hero!

This level of expertise doesn’t come easy. It takes a bit of practice and skill, but using her tips, anyone can do this. Maybe not 100 items, but try for at least 75!

Her biggest help in packing like this is using rubber bands to compress things like shoes, Ziploc bags to suck out any extra air, and packing cubes to keep things as organized as possible.

Now, don’t think you could pack 100 sweatshirts in your bag. Rachel suggests using lightweight fabrics so this hack is perfect to use if you’re going on vacation to the beach. You don’t need much else besides your bathing suit anyhow!

If you need to use multiple suitcases, then you can also use these expert packing hacks to maximize every ounce of space you have in your suitcase!
