    "mannyarts" says the truth!! the rolling up works excellent for me since a few years ago. That's the way I pack up for my husband, my baby and myself all in the same suitcase (but obviously the suitcase is bigger than the one in the video). It really works ;-)

    Actually, the best way to pack a suitcase is to roll your cloths up and pack them in, taking up less space per item, thus maximizing the use of space. w/ this technique I can pack twice the amount of clothing as they did in this video.

    the best way is to roll everything up shirts and t shirts, my daughter told me this, on my last long haul i wrapped up 12 t shirts and a lot of shirts, (wrap them together to form a ball) and packed them round the outside of my case, on arrival i just unrolled them, a brill job, i saved lots of room and the clothes were crease free,
