The young woman lays all of her clothes flat in her case, then folds the bottom item over the pile and stuffs extra clothes down the side. Many people told the TikToker there are far more efficient ways to pack, while some even said her method made them feel stressed out
‘I have the best packing hack of all time,’ Niya said when she excitedly shared the hack with her followers.
‘I do not understand how this works, I don’t understand the physics of it, and every single time I show someone they’re like, “no way this is literally incredible”.’
Niya explained that she was leaving for Nashville in an hour and had to quickly fit a lot of clothes into her small suitcase.
She instructed her followers to find their biggest item of clothing that they want to pack, such as a sweater, and lay it flat on the bottom of the case.
She then said to ‘pile everything else on top of it’, emphasising that clothes should not be folded but laid flat as if ‘they are being ironed’.
Niya put nearly all of her clothes into one side of the case using this method, and to fit in the last items she employed the trick that many of her followers said gave them ‘anxiety’.
She took the bottom item in the suitcase, and folded it over the top of the pile of clothes, then she shoved her last few items into the space it made at the side, and zipped the section closed.
‘I don’t understand why this works,’ she said.
How to follow Niya’s packing hack
1. Find the biggest item of clothing you want to pack, such as a sweater, and lay it flat on the bottom of the case.
2. Then lay all of the rest of the clothes that will fit flat on top.
3. Take the bottom item in the suitcase and fold it over the top of the pile of clothes, this should create space at the side of the case.
4. Shove the last few items into the space as the side of the suitcase at the side and zip the section closed.
The TikToker said it is a perfect hack as all of her clothes are neatly packed into one side of the suitcase, leaving her with the entirety of the other side for shoes and toiletries.
However, Niya’s followers were less than impressed.
‘I promise you this is not a hack. I’m sure if you rolled or used packing cubes you could’ve gotten in more,’ one man said.
‘Rolling and packing cubes, those are the hacks. Sorry this gave me anxiety,’ another wrote.
‘Cool hack if you want anxiety but rolling the clothes in a compression packing cubes is a good option as well, another greed.
One woman thought the trick was ‘amazing’ but admitted it made her feel ‘unexplainably anxious’.
