- "Cross-Packing" - If
you are traveling with a companion, exchange one set of clothing with each other in case one of your
bags gets lost. Easy "insurance" for that rare mishap.
- Dirty Clothes - If you
don't plan to carry a laundry bag nor pack your clean clothes in folders, tie your dirty clothes into a
knot to easily distinguish them from clean.
