Why you should be ‘file folding’ your clothes when going on holiday | The Sun

TRYING to fit as much as possible inside your suitcase for a holiday is a fine art.

Thankfully there are a number of tried and tested ways to make it easier – one of which is "file folding".

The method – which was pioneered by organising expert Marie Kondo – means you can fit more in, as well as see all of yoru clothes at once.

This means you won't have to pull everything out of your luggage when you arrive.

The file folding method is when you fold your clothes and rather than stacking them on top of each other, they go next to each other – looking like files.

This way you can see all of your t-shirts and trousers at once, rather than just the very top one.

One traveller tried it out, saying: "Instead of digging through horizontal layers of clothing, it’s easier to see the clothing pieces you want.

"I was able to pack an additional 22 T-shirts using the front-to-back folded T-shirt method, and I probably could have squeezed in even more.

"Stacking this way enables you to add more clothes depth-wise and also make use of room on the sides."

They said they were no more or less wrinkled than any other way as well.
