This delightful 'Polly Pocket' packing hack to make traveling easier has been labeled a 'game changer' on TikTok
TikTokers are digitizing their packing options like a virtual Polly Pocket catalog or Cher in "Clueless."
The user takes a photo of each outfit, selects just their outline, and pastes it into the notes app.
Influencer Morgan Riddle popularized the habit while traveling with her boyfriend, Taylor Fritz.
TikTokers are creating mini digitized "Polly Pocket catalogs" of their outfits to make packing and traveling easier.
Influencer Morgan Riddle, who popularized what she calls the "painfully type A" method, demonstrated it for followers in a May 12 TikTok.
"The last time I did this, people thought I was either insane or genius — maybe a bit of both," she said.
Before rolling and packing each outfit, Riddle tries every outfit on — complete with accessories — takes a photo, selects her outline on the photo, and pastes it into a notes app under the corresponding category. For Riddle's trip, the categories were broken into main events: dinner, daytime, and tennis matches.
Riddle, who has 349,600 followers, has been dating Taylor Fritz, one of the top ten male tennis players in the world, since 2020. Frequently, she shares behind-the-scenes content of her travel to Fritz's tournaments.
Other TikTokers have adopted the "game changer" method, showing their versions of Riddle's category notes for upcoming trips and walking prospective users through common issues like how to get their icons small enough (tapping and selecting "small image").

By digitizing their outfits, Riddle and like-minded TikTokers say they don't have to dig through their suitcases to conceptualize an outfit, and it's easier to visualize what they've actually packed — especially if the trip is long and the suitcase deep.

People using the "Polly Pocket method" can flip through their outfits as though their Notes app was a seasonal catalog of tiny doll clothes or Cher's dream closet in "Clueless" to find the matching shoes and purse instead.
"This is crazy, and I LOVE IT," wrote one viewer.
