Be a smarter and more efficient traveller with our how-to guide to filling a backpack, suitcase or holdall.

You know how to pack a bag, right? You probably do it every day, whether throwing a few daily essentials into a backpack before leaving the house or filling up a suitcase for a holiday or a business trip. You don’t need us telling you how to do it, any more than you need telling how to tie your shoelaces, right?

But what if we told you that by taking your time and versing yourself in a few lesser-known tips, the act of packing a bag might be transformed from a necessary evil – AKA that thing you do in the frantic half-hour before the taxi to the airport pulls up – into something that’s actually rather satisfying and worthwhile? Not just that, but it’ll ensure that your clothes are in a much better condition when you arrive at your destination.

In this video, we’ve collected three shorts first published on The Daily into one complete packing masterclass. In it, we reveal the most efficient way to pack a suitcase, a holdall and a backpack. Hit play and make your life that little bit easier.
