This is not a silly indulgence. It's really useful.
on October 31, 2011
We travel a lot; this year the two of us are apt to hit the "Gold" level at at least one hotel chain, and I have gotten to know the gates at Sky Harbor Airport entirely too well. So after many years of collecting "easy ways to organize your luggage" -- and a demo at a nearby store from an Eagle Creek sales rep -- I was ready to listen.
A luggage organizer might seem like a silly indulgence. I used to be a big fan of the "roll everything" technique; who the heck needs to spend money on something like this? But after we got our first one of these "pack-it folders," we went back and bought two more.
First, they squish everything very well *without* causing wrinkles (though to be fair I tend to choose clothes that don't wrinkle, and I'm a hippie/REI kind of gal to begin with). A few minutes of folding before you leave on a business trip results in a week or two during which your clean clothes don't become a tangled mess.
Also, they really do organize my trips. Unpacking is two seconds: Put the folders in the hotel drawer. Even when I live out of the suitcase, because the clean clothes stay in the folder, they don't mingle with the dirty clothes.
This is really useful. You should get one... and I dare say you will get more than one, because you and your spouse will fight over it. (Not that this would happen here. *cough*) It'd also be a heck of a nice present for anyone who travels.
