Think you can't fit everything you want on your trip in a carry on? Think again.
In a video for luggage company Biaggi, actress and adventurer Rachel Grant shows off her impressive packing hacks. "My secret is elastic bands, packing cubes, and Ziplock bags, which help you press the items into the carry on," she said.
First, she starts by rolling some of her clothing items to save space. Then, she grabs a Ziplock bag, stuffs as many rolls of clothes as she can inside, and compresses it. Grant packs her non-clothing items into packing cubes and puts folded sock balls into her shoes to both save space and maintain the shoe's shape. She then attaches rubber bands to the shoes to keep them compressed and together. She also folds the lightweight clothes she wants to bring into a packing cube and compresses it. Finally, she starts to pack her suitcase by putting heavier items on the bottom.
By the end of the video, over 100 items have been placed in the suitcase and she's able to easily zip the whole thing up.
With Grant's travel hack tips, you'll worry less about your luggage getting lost or paying extra for checked baggage. Plus, you can strictly enforce a leave no beloved outfit behind rule.
