When it’s time to hit the road, do you fold, roll, layer or squish? Do you make a packing list or just wing it?
Those are just a few of the questions Cheapflights.com recently asked travelers in a quick on-line survey.
Here’s what they found:
Just over 56 percent of Americans make packing lists and 77 percent plan or lay out outfits.
Forty-two percent of us start packing two to three days before leaving home and an another 30 percent start packing a week ahead of a trip.
26 percent admitted waiting until the night before a trip to start packing while just over 2 percent said they lived on the edge and and didn’t pack anything until a hour or less before leaving.
No doubt, those are people you see looking for a place to buy underwear at the airport.
Fold or roll?
70 percent of survey respondents said they folded clothes in their suitcases, while 30 percent said rolling was their method of choice.
And maybe it doesn’t really matter what you pack or how: only 45 percent of Americans reported that they ended up wearing everything they packed.
