Bundle packing: Learn it, love it.
If you’re already a good light-packer, this isn’t a big deal. If you’re like me — with no ability to look at a weather forecast, consider the length and nature of your trip, and put relevant items of clothing into a bag — bundle-packing is a revelation. You can just throw in half your wardrobe and you’re off, carry-on stowed neatly in the overhead bin.
Here's how you do it:
1. Get a carry-on. 2. Do this. 3. Pack shoes, camera and whatever around the bundle. 4. Your 3-2-1 Ziploc goes in the front compartment or in your Personal Item. 5. Done!
Apparently, if you pack light, your clothes won't wrinkle, but I'll never know.
Happy Thanksgiving travels (a little early).
