Who likes to travel with their family? Family trips can be so much fun! But the packing and unpacking? Not so much.
Packing Tips for Families
Let’s talk about packing for trips. Here are some of my tips that help when I’m packing for my family of 6:
- Make a list of what’s in every bag, and put it in the bag. That way you know exactly what’s going in before the trip and exactly what should be going back in when repacking at the end of the trip. Saves time!
- Going to a place with a washer and dryer? Pack only 2 pairs of socks, 3 pairs of underwear, and mix-and-match clothing. You can do a load of laundry while you’re there for the essentials.
- Shoes can be tough to pack. Decide on two pairs that you’ll need: one comfortable pair for everyday walking, and one pair for dressing up that will match anything. Wear the comfortable pair while traveling to your destination, and pack the other pair in the bottom of your suitcase.
- Flying? Be sure to leave space in a bag for souvenirs! If possible, leave one small carry-on bag (on most airlines, you’re allowed a small personal bag along with a carry-on) mostly empty so that you can transport small souvenirs home without hassle.
- Another tip for flying: Don’t forget to pack liquids (think shampoo, body wash, mouthwash, etc) that are 3 oz or smaller in a clear sealed bag. Since you’ll most likely only be gone for a few days, only pack one item of each necessity, and the family can share.
