I’m the ‘folding queen’ – make the most of your carry-on luggage with my packing technique

DON'T spend unnecessary money checking a bag for your trip.

Known as the "folding queen," Lennia McCarter posted a video sharing her technique for making the most out of your carry-on luggage.

To make as much room as possible, McCarter folds her clothing items one inside of the other.

First, she folded a pair of pants, and then folded a shirt around them.

Her technique uses much less space than if you were to fold each item serpately.

McCarter then rolls up the folded clothing items, creating a small, tube-like shape.

The "folding queen" repeated this process with all of the clothes she was packing.

To stay even more organized, she folded together the specific items that she would wear together.

This technique will keep your bag much neater, and will make it easier to unpack your carry-on and get dressed.

When packing a hat, McCarter suggested filling the inside of the hat with clothing.
