As someone who travels a lot for work, I consider packing a light but efficient suitcase one of my secret talents. Here are some of my packing tips.
Do you have any tips on buying luggage? We’re starting to realize that 2 suitcases isn’t enough with 2 little ones.
You are over packing, you shouldn’t need more than 2 suit cases, use a washer and dryer at the motel or wear u are staying. I have been traveling 20 years every week.
We are probably over packing a bit, but the diapers alone take up half our smaller suitcase. And the other is potty training, so we had a lot of back up pants…
Can you purchase diapers once you get where your going? Might not be the most convenient but at least it’s less packing.
Take the diapers u immediately need and purchase diapers at your destination. Kids clothes are pretty small the space you save in carting diapers will save you room
Costco sells some really well made luggage – their Kirkland brand. I bought a carry-on, and though it’s not beautiful, it is the best-made piece of luggage I’ve ever owned.
Can you give me recommendation on what to buy a 7 year old (birthday & christmas) gift and a 5 year old twins for the same occasion. I was thinking about the coins from USA mint but do you think buying an individual bonds more preferred? Thank you!
Can’t take a a big bottle of anything in your carry on. How are you taking spray sunscreen on a plane?
You can find travel size sunscreen. That’s what I use.
I’m so pale that I need the highest protection and the biggest bottle. Those little bottles do nothing for me
Kristen, unless you are going to the remotest of places (we’re talking bush Alaska or similar), you can always buy a bigger bottle once you reach your destination
What about jammies, undergarments, toothbrush, toothpaste, brush, hair products/accessories, etc. etc. etc. 😉
Unfortunately, I learned the hard way that “checked bags are lost bags!” Last year I went to NYC for the holidays and when my bag was finally returned (3 days late) it has so many missing items! nnI love your tips! Thanks girl!
Ohmygosh… You are adorable, Rachel. Fun to see you hold up your dresses and shoes, a break from the money videos is fun.
