Rachael's Packing Secrets
With all the traveling Rachael's done over the years, she's become an expert on packing. She shares a few of her ideas for making sure you fit everything in your suitcase and don't forget a thing! "If you learn to pack this way, you won't forget any of the elements of an outfit, from the jacket all the way down to your shoes," says Rach.
Start by putting your outfit together all on one hanger: Skirt or pants, top and jacket.
Then, cover the outfit with a dry cleaning bag to keep your clothes from getting wrinkled.
Add a belt or scarf (if you have one that you wear with the outfit) over the hanger.
If you have any jewelry, earrings or other accessories you want to wear with the ensemble, they should go in a plastic baggie which can be pinned or attached to the hanger.
Have a bag and shoes to go with the outfit? First, make sure they're versatile and can go with a few pieces you're bringing to wear. Then, if you can fit it, put the shoes you want to wear in the bag that accompanies your look.
Rachael also gets the audience to reveal some of their best travel tips:
The first woman has a great way to pack accessories: Roll your fragile necklaces in bubble wrap so they won't tangle or break. Then, secure the bubble wrap with a little bow. "And then you can toss it right in the jewelry baggie," says Rach.
After one too many times having her hairbrush pull at clothing fabric, this clever audience member came up with an easy solution for keeping your brush and comb away from your clothes. "I wash out a potato chip can [you can use any type of can that fits] and then throw my hairbrush and comb into it and I can safely pack it in my suitcase without the bristles pulling my clothes."
