A flight attendant has shared her secret on how to fit 14 days of clothes in a carry-on bag, which will help you avoid checking a bag and save money in the process.
Since flight attendants spend most of their time traveling, they need to know how to maximize their trunk space.
Reddit user Phxflyer shared on the forum that a flight attendant said the best packing hack is to roll clothes.
The user wrote: “By all means roll up your clothes.
“I can take 12 to 14 days of clothes in a carry-on bag when I’m rolling, a little less in the winter.
“A flight attendant told me about it and I’ve been doing it for a while.”
Other Reddit users applauded the hack and even shared their own experiences after trying it.
User Frecklesfunn said: “Roll it all up, in full outfits.
“I put a complete outfit on the bed, from the longest to the shortest piece of clothing, and then roll it up.
“I just pack an extra outfit for how many days we’re going and some extra underwear/socks/shirts. Especially with children – that makes life so much easier.”
Another user said that rolling clothes “take up a lot less space”.
The only thing to watch out for – even with the rolling method – is the weight of your hand luggage.
Some low-cost airlines have weight restrictions for carry-on baggage.
Be sure to check with your airline about their carry-on baggage rules and restrictions so you don’t have to be the victim of baggage screening upon arrival at the airport.
