Moms share viral ‘pure genius’ packing hack: ‘About to change your life’

There’s a new packing hack that’s sweeping TikTok — and if you have kids, you may want to listen up.

Some moms are using hanging, over-the-door shoe organizers to pack their children’s clothes for a vacation, and many are gushing over its amazing practicality.

One creator, Jade O’Neal, shared the hack in a video last month that reached over 2.6 million views on the social media app.

“If you’re traveling with a baby, this hack is about to change your life,” she announced in the 29-second clip.

O’Neal showed the hanging organizer that she had bought from Amazon, and explained that she folded each different outfit that her daughter would be wearing into the different pockets — even accessories.

“I did three rows of outfits, and then swimsuits were their own row, pajamas were their own row, and put extras on the bottom,” she explained.

The mom-of-two continued, “This folds up right in your suitcase, when you get to your destination you can just hang it on a door in your hotel room, and then everything is super accessible, ready to go, and you don’t have to dig around in a suitcase your entire vacation.”

She also shared clips demonstrating how exactly she folds up the organizer into her suitcase.

And, this month, another creator, Stephanie Joplin, tried out the hack for herself — an endeavor that garnered 7.3 million views on TikTok.

“I tried the viral packing hack for your kids, and lemme tell you, it’s gonna be a game-changer,” Joplin, who goes by the username @betterwithchardonnay, gushed.

She explained that she organized her shoe hanger according to the different days her kids would be wearing the outfits.

“I am using this one organizer to pack two toddlers for a six day trip,” she explained. “You can pack up all their outfits and then use the bottom part for any excess clothing, or other items that you need.”

The Post reached out to both creators for comment.

And, although it’s unclear where exactly this hack first originated, it seems like other parents have tried out the hack in different ways, with some even using hanging cubbies to pack up their kids, seen on Cubbyathome.com in 2021.

In February, TikToker and content creator Desirae Barnett made a video demonstrating how she packs up her four kids for a five-day trip — and used the hanging cubbies to bring some of their clothes with them, garnering over 3 million views.

She also showed how she organized all of their snacks and toys, putting a lot of them into separate pouches.

In the comments section of Joplin’s video, many people were impressed by the hack, and wanted to try it out for themselves.
