Elizabeth Childs, 19, was packing up her belongings to return back to Winston-Salem State University.

The business student tweeted pictures of her incredible  packing skills on Tuesday, which has now received over 58,000 likes.

Elizabeth, from Tacoma, Washington, said: “I honestly have to say my secret to packing everything was down to the bag itself.

“There’s a bottom compartment which I use to put my shoes in, then I roll my clothes instead of folding them – which I have now discovered is a military technique.”

Elizabeth claims she spent just 15-30 minutes packing her things.

The two pictures, which show Elizabeth’s items both scattered on the floor and then neatly packed into her bag, have received a lot of attention from online users.

One amazed twitter user said: “You need to make a YouTube tutorial.”

Another commented: “Teach me how to pack because I be having 20 bags for two nights.”

Elizabeth revealed that duffle bag is widely available, including on Amazon, for around $40 (£33).
