Don’t toss that dry cleaner bag
Here’s the best way to pack a suitcase to keep your clothes wrinkle-free on the road: Use the clear plastic wardrobe bags that come free from the dry cleaner and are already in your closet. Place each of your hanging items in its own plastic bag, then place all the bags together in a garment bag or suitcase. The bags create a thin layer of air around each item, preventing friction. Friction is what causes wrinkles; and plastic stops friction—it’s that easy. These are the other packing mistakes to avoid.
Borrow a clip from your desk
How to pack a suitcase so that all the cords and wires that come with your phone and electronics don’t make you think “Snakes on a Plane” when you reach into your carry-on luggage? A simple binder clip from your desk is the two-second solution you need: Simply loop the wires together and use the clip to keep them in place. Voila! And the binder packing tips don’t stop there: Grab another one to cover the top of your razor, or anything else sharp in your luggage, so you don’t cut your finger when you’re feeling around for it in your toiletry bag. These are the things that will most likely get you flagged by the TSA.
