    Packing tip ?

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B086G7QX2K...roduct_details

    a woman in my pool class got home from a cruise yesterday.

    She said this fit in her rolling duffle, 2....1 for her and 1 for husband in the large rolling duffle bag

    She said she took it out of the bag and hung it and she and he were all set.

    They packed their stuff in the 3 cubbies........
    she packed undies, sox and nightgowns in one compartment, shorts and capris and bathing suit in middle, and tops and bathing suit cover up in 3rd.

    When they got onboard, they just took it out and hung in the closet!

    Ingenious!!

    We have 2 of these in our laundry room for "stuff" and 2 in the mudroom for sneakers/sandals/flips

    I may try a dry run and see how it works to plan for our next cruise and next Aruba travel.

    I saw those on Amazon, they look pretty cool for packing, easy breezy. I don't think it would work for me as I usually over-pack. I like having choices and yes, I always have clothes I don't end up wearing BUT I have cut back over the years I have packing cubes so I'll be using those again in October. Good info Andrea!

    I am a loyal packing cube user.
    This looks intriguing though.
    We may try a practice run and put 3 folded
    bath towels in each cubbie, and see how it fits in
    the rolling duffel. I would love this to work for our
    cruises as it is always a challenge getting our stuff organized
    and put away in an orderly fashion.

    the older I get the more "OCD" I become.
    this is right up my alley.

    Wonderful idea from Andrea if you one can do it. But I agree with you Susie - it would not work for me either! I pack too much and have also gotten better. I envy those who can just do carry on!
