    No worries, backpack. A month of 18 hour workdays contributed to my sense of humour bypass. I hope we get more contributions to this thread as I'm sure we can all learn from how folks are making...

    My mistake, Crusader - I use the Pack-It 18 folder template, not the 15, to fold shirts and dress pants that then fit inside the Tri-Star large packing cube. The template goes into the cube too, to...
