Are you a busy mom interested in taking some time away with your family? You deserve it!
If you are a mom, then you most likely understand what it’s like to pack for a family. If you are like me, you have to create a huge list of things to pack for yourself and the kids! It can be difficult to get everything together for easy travel. I love light luggage since I feel like always trying to balance and juggle everything with only two hands. Carrying a toddler around the airport is also difficult, so choose wisely when packing!
A Few Packing Tips:
Make a List. A list is very important when packing. Make sure to list what each family member will need. You don’t want to get to your destination and forget anyone’s pajamas or underwear! By making a list, you may avoid having to make trips to a store nearby to pick up items that you forgot back at home.
Start packing a little early. Don’t wait until the last minute to pack for the family. You may be left feeling overwhelmed if you try to do it all at once. I like to set out our set of luggage about a week in advance and add to it during the week. When I do my final load of laundry before our trip, I go through it to make check for any other pieces that I need to include in the luggage before we leave!
Pack comfortable clothes. Choose lightweight clothes, light colors, and don’t forget walking shoes and socks for each family member!
Don’t forget to pack the extras. Sometimes you’ll need to throw in a few extra diapers or wipes, along with items like burp cloths and extra onesies if you are traveling with very small children. It’s a good idea to pack one of your child’s favorite blankets or stuffed animals as well to avoid a meltdown on your first night at your hotel!
