Here Are the Three Best Ways to Pack a Suitcase

Pack smart this summer.

Ever wondered what's the best way to pack a suitcase? We put three popular techniques to the test by packing the same carry-on suitcase with the exact same items for the beach. Here's what we learned about each method.

Roll It

Pro: Rolling clothes saves the most space in a suitcase. If you're going on a trip with several outfit changes, start rolling. Con: You'll have wrinkles when you unroll.

Burrito It

Pro: Folding all of your clothes into themselves really does prevent wrinkles. Plus, you'll be using a packing method that went viral on social media this year. Con: This one takes time. And more time to unravel all the clothes when unpacking.

Cube It

Pro: This is the dream method for organizers. You can sort and group outfits and clothes types together plus it makes unpacking easier. Con: Cubes take up a lot of space.

Watch these techniques in action, packing the same items.
