We all know the hassle of packing all of our clothes in one convenient bag to avoid additional baggage charges at the airport.
But a TikToker shared their ingenious hack on how to travel with your clothes on.
Kristen Black (@kristenashleyblack) shared footage of herself at the airport with just a small backpack that wouldn’t fit all of her clothes.
Then she shows how to “save space, save money” by laying her knitted turtleneck on the floor and stacking the rest of her clothes on top.
The caption read: “This is how you pack for your Ryanair flight.”
After she has stacked the clothes, Kristen rolls her sweater off the back of her neck and creates a “DIY neck pillow” for herself, which she ties around her neck with her sleeves to form a comfortable and practical neck support.
As soon as your neck pillow is securely in place, the TikToker collects your toiletries and packs them in your small backpack, as it is no longer needed for your clothes.

Of course, we also have to take into account the souvenirs bought on vacation and Kristen also has a solution that means it won’t take up any space in your pocket.
She puts her purchased toy rabbit on her head and then pulls out her woolen hat, which she puts over her head to hold her souvenir in place.
The TikToker can also be seen from its large pockets in its long coat.
Finally, she shows off her finished look to demonstrate how she used these various hacks so she wouldn’t have to pay for extra baggage – much to the airline’s disappointment.
At the end the caption read: “Ready for the Paris Fashion Week + save money, so win and win.”
Since sharing her advice, Kristen’s video has received 2.8 million views with over 260,000 likes and thousands of comments from people.
The official TikTok account of Ryanair reacted fearfully to the clip and wrote: “Beast, I’m scared.”
Some were impressed with the hack and said they will try it out for themselves.
One person wrote: “Stop, I have a Ryanair flight tomorrow and I only have hand luggage, I will soon be wearing three T-shirts.”
“No reason, I’ll take notes,” said another person.
Someone else replied, “Wait, but that’s so smart that I’ll do that with Spirit and United” [airlines]. “
While others were more busy with Kristen rolling up their clothes on the floor.
One person wrote: “Even if Covid was still nothing … still … the floor … it’s dirty.”
“Nobody talks about putting her clothes on the airport floor ???” Another person said.
Another added, “You are really on the literal airport floor.”
People in the comments were also confused about how she managed to get past security, and Kristen explained that she put the clothes in her backpack at security, but it wouldn’t fit under her seat so she did done the hack after she got through security on her flight gate.
