How to Pack a Suitcase

Introduction: How to Pack a Suitcase

This Instructable is for the most wanted burning questions contest.
I've done my fair share of flying in a plane over long distances and the most tedious part, besides airport security, is packing your suitcase. There are of course other ways to pack your suitcase, but this is my way. packing this suitcase is assuming your going on a short weekend long trip to Sin City.

Step 1: Get a Suitcase

For our short weekend long trip we dont need a huge suitcase. just one that will hold a couple of under garments, a couple of shirts and pants, and toiletries.

Step 2: First Come the Pants

When packing a suitcase you want to put the smaller items on top, and the larger items on the bottom.

Step 3: That Was Pretty Easy...huh?

Now close up your suitcase and put your toiletries in the outside pockets and your set.
If you choose to take liquids(toothpaste, perfume) with you on a plane, make sure to put them in little baggies because airlines may only let you carry them around in separate plastic bags.

If you choose to not have this be your carry on, instead of guessing which suitcase could be yours on the conveyer belt you could take some duct tape and tape the first letter of your name to the suitcase in big letters, this eliminates guessing and others will know that your luggage is yours and not theirs.

Please coment and rate and tell me how i did....
