Packing a Carry-On

The Martha Stewart Show, February 2010

As a frequent traveler, Martha has learned to pack and unpack her belongings with ease. Follow these basic tips to avoid packing problems:

  • Wrap clothing in acid-free tissue paper for protection.
  • Save shoe bags and repurpose them for packing shoes; fit them around the perimeter of your luggage.
  • Tie a distinguishing ribbon to the outside of your bag so you are sure to spot it easily, anywhere.
  • Include work or leisure reading for entertainment -- Martha uses an Amazon Kindle -- and an easy-to-access light layer such as a pashmina in case you get cold.

    Martha's hand-held carry-on looked fantastic. I loved the way when unzipped it fully opened so you can easily access and retrieve things. Does anyone know who makes it?

    What size Ziplock did Marth use? It doesn't look like a gallon size. My grocery store didn't carry anything larger.

    Looks like the wheeled 29" packing case and the stowaway duffle from T. Anthony.
