  1. If it is anything that could make a mess in my bag, I put it in a ziploc bag and squeeze out the air.

    I think you shared the shirt and coat packing tips some time ago (from another web site). I’m still amazed by the shirt technique.

  2. I have the dry cleaner fold my shirts. That way, they just go into the bag. If I don’t have a trip, I can unfold them and hang them up with minimal extra effort.

  3. Amazing. However, I want to see that shirt folding trick in person – otherwise I have to suspect a cleverly edited video.

  4. Just watched his shirt folding instruction video and tried it out on a t-shirt. It really works!

    I also like the cling wrap under the bottle cap. That would have saved me a shampoo spillage or two.
