Woman reveals 'number one hack' to travelling with just a small bag | The Sun

A WOMAN has revealed her "number one hack" for going on holiday with just a small personal bag – and people have called it genius.

Traveller Kaitlyn Dickie said she was going on a three-day trip, but would be charged $74 (£60) for a carry-on bag.

Instead, she revealed how a compression bag made for sleeping bags meant she could travel with just a personal item.

She told her thousands of followers on TikTok: "My number one hack when travelling with just a personal bag.

"I'm putting all of my soft clothes into this compression sack.

"The only thing I am rolling is my dress for the evening as I don't want it to get wrinkled."

After stuffing the clothes, she then fastened the buckles and leaned on it, tightening straps as she put her weight on it.

The sack then becomes a fraction of the size, as she said she "literally leans and pulls" to compress all of the clothes inside.

She said she easily fit in three days of clothes, including "socks and underwear".

More than two million people have watched the video, with people loving the tip and calling it "genius".

One person said: "As a backpacker I have tons of these and never thought of using them for regular travel. I'm doing it for my next trip."

Another said: "I'm sold I'm buying one."
