Bucket Packin’ Strategy: Clothing and Boots

While there is no rule stating that your item must fit entirely in the bucket, you do need to try to get at least half of the item in it, or you’ll flag a manager’s attention. With that in mind, let’s look at how to make beautiful Western fashion boots fit and not lose out on space for clothing.

Packing Tips

  • Roll up small items like tank tops, socks, and leggings. Put them into the boot shaft.
  • Items like jeans form rigid squares when you fold them. Put those in the bottom. There will be a gap between the square item and the round bucket edges.
  • Fill the gap with the boot shaft, upside down. The soles will stick out.
  • Use wallets and ball caps to fill any other gaps.
  • Stack other flexible t-shirts, puffy vests, scarves, and sweatshirts between the boots.
  • Stabilize it all by belting the boots together.
  • There’s always a crevice to fill with a necklace or earrings!
