The Art of Packing / by Beau Dunn

PACKING ORDER Start by putting the heaviest items flat at the bottom
of the suitcase. Place your toiletries bag with its base against the

SHOES Put shoes in felt bags. The empty space inside each shoe can be used for belts, accessories, and socks.

JACKET/PANTS/SKIRT To reduce creasing, interlace your jacket with pants and
a skirt. First, button the jacket and lay it face
up and flat. Fold pants in half and put on top. Place the skirt, folded lengthwise,
on top of the pants. Then fold in the sleeves and the bottom of the jacket over the top.

ACCESSORIES Place on top of clothing to keep it from moving.

EVENING Additional space can be used
for a dress, folded in half.

Happy travels!
