A MAN who has traveled the world has revealed his clever technique for packing for vacation.
Figuring out how much to pack on vacation can be difficult, especially when trying to keep baggage costs down.
Daniel Green, who owns travel insurance Faye, has traveled the world.
And so that he doesn’t pack too much, he has explained his own 1-2-3-4-5-6 rule.
He told Business Insider, “Pack a hat, two pairs of shoes, three pants, four tops, five pairs of socks and six pairs of underwear.”
He said this works for both long and short trips – with enough for a week’s trip but can be washed if going away longer.
Aside from underwear, most things can be worn again, saving the space of unused clothing.
Daniel has previously slammed airlines for charging baggage, calling it “absurd”.
He told the Washington Post, “Nobody’s happy about it.”
A packing expert revealed four more tips and tricks for making room in your suitcase.
And you might be surprised to hear that you should both roll and fold your clothes when packing.
Expert Sophie Liard, also known as The Folding Lady, said: “A mix works well, depending on the material of the clothes and what’s actually going into the suitcase.”
She advises: “As a general rule of thumb, we recommend folding the following items: blazers, t-shirts, underwear, jackets, anything delicate or decorated, and rolling the following; thicker knits, dresses, tights.”
The hybrid pack-and-roll approach is supported by packing and organization expert Marie Kondo, who shared how she makes the most of the space in her suitcase.
