This time around I didn't want to take that chance and wanted to at least get 3 outfits in my carry on that could be interchanged and last me at least the first week. My carryon luggage is 19" so its somewhat small, but I was determined. I set aside the outfit I would wear on the plane. This would be worn for two days since I would be flying for that amount of time. Then I grouped my outfits together and rolled them together like so:
I then placed a pair of rain boots at the bottom of the suitcase, and then started placing each little log on top and then another pair of shoes on the side of my clothes. All my socks and underwear will go in the other section of the suitcase, and I will put my cameras in the corner of the suitcase. Voila! The remaining clothes will go in the checkin suitcase along with whatever gifts I am bringing.
