Packing light

Doug Dyment reveals his secrets to packing light for trips.

Dyment has two big tricks for packing a bag correctly: Don’t let any space go unused, and wrap your clothes in bundles.

“If you’re packing a pair of running shoes, say, don’t forget there’s a lot of space inside those shoes that you can use to pack stuff,” he says.

When it comes to clothing, Dyment says travelers who fold items individually, put them in a stack and force them in the suitcase are making a huge mistake.
