I'm a Packing Ninja

Because not only do these two crazy patterns kind of work together,
this, my dears, is a knee length puffer coat with a hood.
The room key, the size of a credit card, is for size reference.
 
More covert packing tips to come ...

  3. Stand back, the bag is about to be opened! I'm intrigued to see more of your packing tips. I've shoved a few down jackets and coats in the outside pocket of my suitcase, it's amazing how small they can get.

    1. My dad was amazed it was a full coat smashed down little (ha, just noticed the pun). Down things are so good for keeping warm, taking very little space and weight.

  4. WOW teach me your secrets!!! I've only heard about rolling your clothes before packing...which helps to a certain extent.

    1. I'll pass on a few more things that I hope will be helpful ... my objectives is a lot of flexibility with the fewest number of items and not having a wrinkled mess needing to be ironed.

    1. The bags are great for taking your own pillow, if you don't like hotel pillows. ;)

  9. You ARE a packing ninja! Just here from a link off Gigi's--clearly I have been missing out. Fab reviews; I just read like eight of them in a row. And thanks to you, I've got so many why-didn't-I-see-that-earlier regrets now! :)

    Can't wait to hear how you managed to get that puffer down to size. Which compression bag thingy are you using? Whatever it is it's MAGIC.

    1. And...I have no idea why it just published as "n" because that is definitely not right. Oopsies.

    2. Hi magpie! Welcome and I hope you'll visit often. :)

      I don't remember which vacuum bag this is, it came with a bunch of other sizes in a package deal (ha!) some years ago but I think most of them work well enough for this purpose. I just folded the hood downward, then folded the coat into quarters and stuffed it into the bag. When you roll out the air, it gets flat to easily go into a suitcase taking up very little room and hardly any added weight.
