How to Pack a Suitcase 101
Step 1 - Pick out an outfit for each day. Fold the clothing lengthwise and pile on top of each other. Make sure you have socks, underwear, and even any special accessories in the pile. Roll them up carefully. If you roll them smoothly, you'll eliminate most of the wrinkles that come from folding.
Step 2 - Nestle the outfit rolls together into the suitcase. Make sure they are snug so that they won't unroll. Put any shoes into plastic bags so that they won't dirty your clothes. Do the same with any bottles of lotion/shampoo/etc.
And that's how I pack a suitcase! It's so much easier to just grab a roll every day and know that the whole outfit is there. It eliminates having to dig through all the other clothing to find the right pair of socks or the right bra. Coming home, though, I just throw everything into the case because I'll have to wash it all anyway.
