A lot of travelers try to save money when flying by packing everything in one carry-on.

Although this is a great way to save some money, it can get a little tricky fitting shoes, outfits, toiletries and anything else you may need in one little suitcase. Here are some helpful tips to fit more and create room in your luggage.

Packing cubes keep all your belongings together in a small, compact space. They fit nicely together in one place, creating more room for your miscellaneous items. Along with creating more space, packing cubes also help you stay organized.

Rolling your clothes makes your suitcase more organized. Rolled clothes tend to wrinkle less.

If you are packing any type of sneaker or slip-on shoes, take advantage of the space and fill your shoes with jewelry, socks, deodorant, ties, underwear or any other smaller items.

One last tip is to buy an expandable suitcase. If you need a little more room, expanding the suitcase will allow you to add a couple more items to your already packed suitcase.

I was staying in New York City with my daughter. We arrived at Penn Station, right across the street from Hotel Pennsylvania, at 9:30 a.m. — way too early to check in. But we had some luggage we didn’t want to carry around with us, so we stopped at the hotel to leave it.
