My friends know I can’t resist buying loud shirts when I am travelling. . . . . but wonder how I find room in my luggage to bring them back.
Well I work on the principle of throwing things away as I travel.
When I notice a pair of socks gets a small hole in them; like this example they go in my travel box.
They can get the last wear the next time I am away and then its in the bin.
The same applies to worn underpants and stained, or slightly torn T shirts.
On a typical holiday i would probably throw away 4-5 old and worn items of clothes, . . . which means there is room in my bags for a couple of shirts.
