How to pack a carry-on suitcase

Everyone I know has their own packing style, but here's a tip that I've seen lots of places: instead of folding your clothes (like you probably do when you put them in a drawer), roll them up in tubes, like this:
And then tile them in your suitcase, with the heaviest things, like jeans, at the bottom, and the lightest pieces, like tanks and camisoles, on the top.  
Efficient carry-on packing technique
I do this whenever I can (it takes a bit longer than folding things the normal way), and it really works.  Check out these pictures of the same suitcase of things, packed with everything rolled, versus with everything folded flat!
