Start by creating outfit sticky notes for each day of your trip. Write out the entire outfit on the “Day One” note, and do the same for each day. Then remember the clothing that stays together, plays together. Roll the entire outfit together. Place the undergarment, socks and jewelry in a pair of pants then roll it all together. Then place that group on a shirt, and roll it up. Then put in inside the suitcase with the sticky of note of “Day One.” This way every outfit is complete and together when you are ready to wear it.
If you have bulky items try using a space bag. Place your clothing in the bag, attach a vacuum to the hole and start sucking out all that air. It will create more room in your suitcase for other items.
