The debate on whether folding or rolling your clothes is the best way to pack for travel has great arguments on both sides, but we’re fans of rolling here. There are certain tricks for getting it right to keep in mind.

 

Pick the right clothes. Rolling leads to wrinkles when you use it on the wrong clothes. Choose materials that are wrinkle-resistant, like cotton and polyester. For jeans, avoid denim when possible as it tends to be too bulky to roll well.

 

Be sure to always stick with the roll and fold method. By this we mean that once your clothes are rolled up, you should fold the ends of them over to keep them tight. This way they won’t come undone during your travels. To achieve this, start by turning the ends of the clothing inside out. For t-shirts, you’ll do this at the bottom before you start rolling. For underwear, the waistbands. Socks? The openings. Always roll toward the end you just turned inside out, as that’s what you’ll use to fold the clothes into themselves.

 

Finally, one expert-level trick for travelers is to fold three-in-one. By this we mean fold your smaller clothing items into the bigger ones. This works best with underwear and socks folded into shirts. You simply stack them on top of one another — shirt, underwear, then socks. Then roll the shirt as you would normally. Now you’ve saved yourself space and already pre-coordinated your outfits for your trip!

Kenwood Inn & Spa

My husband and I arrived to Kenwood Inn & Spa about an hour before check-in time and luckily our room was ready. The front desk attendant asked if we need assistance with our luggage, then escorted us to our room. Along the way, she pointed out the rooms past the lobby where the daily complimentary breakfast is served, as well as complimentary wine tastings. I enjoyed a glass of welcome Champagne as we made our way to the room.

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination?
