I agree with John (no big surprise) however would caution you that over-packing is counter productive - no gains with the potential for some losses.......

The pink fluffy is just that - pink and fluffy - it is compressed in packaging and when removed from that packaging it expands pretty drastically - typically, with a 1" space between framing members, you would expect the entire void to be filled using standard materials (correctly sized for the walls) without the need to stuff additional insulation in the bays.

If the inside framing is staggered from the framing in the exterior walls then the framing itself helps to brace the insulation, locking it into place.
