Get ready, be careful, pack up! Or the family holiday begins when mom thinks it over, organizes it, lists it, puts it away, zips it up, zips it up. We can go.
Can we go
If you already have where and how, and the only question is, “Who will pack it?” The question remains, it’s definitely the beginning of the family vacation, because here we are, tireless and creative moms who aren’t constrained by the limited bag capacity.
I introduce the practices accumulated over the years, and maybe more Marie Kondo He would be proud of me too!
Black belt users must be bored by now, but I can’t stress enough The list is the foundation, the crutch, on which you will rely when packing and unpacking, and you will certainly not miss (or leave out) anything, If you have a list. When you are packing for a family of 4 or 5, you should write a list for each person, it is best to keep it in your phone notes or in Google Keep, and you can take it out again from time to time.
Since they take up the most space in luggage, I like to overpack clothes first to see how much room is left for other stuff and extras. The best way to pack for each family member is if You divide the blouses and pants into separate packing boxes (The larger IKEA Ziplock bags can also be used for baby clothes, and will also come in handy at the beach for a wet swimsuit.) One day, one set, one die. Bathing suits can also be placed in one common cube, and pajamas in another. Thus, our lumps are easier to find if we live out of the bag.
What is a good basic holiday wardrobe?
- Casual Tops/T-Shirts/Pants
- An unofficial piece for everyone
- night dress
- Coat/jacket (maybe a raincoat)
On vacation, we can obviously choose from fewer outfits, like this one I make sure the colors are relatively more neutral and I’d better pack monochrome things, If we want to mix the pre-made combinations (at least the kids will surely do that). If I want to avoid a fashion disaster during the holidays, I prefer monochromatic ensembles.
If we have limited space, the rule of thumb for packing shoes is this We wear the piece that takes up the most space when we travel. This is practical, for example even if we travel by plane, nobody gets cold in the climate, we even save space. If you buy many closed shoes, the socks can be hidden inside, also for optimal use of the size.
If we had space, inflatable animals could come, but with a family of 4 the trunk is already quite full, so first of all, sunscreen, sunglasses, sun hats, and a waterproof case for phone/small items. If we have a property that provides beach towels, then if not, choose quick-drying sports towels, it also saves space and time.
This list can vary greatly from family to family, but there are a few basics that are good to have on hand. In addition to the usual medicines, we should always have bandages and an antiseptic for wounds – instead of iodine, we have a practical pump, a children’s antipyretic, a thermometer, an anti-nausea lollipop, hand sanitizer and tweezers for ticks.
Pipere, or half-pigeon
Toiletries can take up a lot of space, but if you opt for the travel-sized versions, you can save space. You can get empty travel size bottles in many places, and you can easily refill them and take them with you. You may not need to pack shampoo/conditioner/shower if you are staying at a hotel. But you definitely need:
- Toothbrushes and toothpastes
- comb brush
- Hair accessories
- shaving (shaving equipment)
- Hair care products (dry shampoo can be your best friend when you travel!)
- Skin cleansers and moisturizers
- A contact lens and case solution for blind people like me
Put passports and other personal documents where you can easily access them. Our glasses, phones, and solar charger should also be on hand, especially if we’re traveling with teens. By the way Charger, charger for everythingCamera, watch, tablet, etc.
With us, the children pack a backpack for themselves, in which they keep their treasures, but we agree in advance about this Two games per person (The ones without small parts that fall out easily, so we don’t have to search for Barbie heels), and two storybooks. Water bottles and fruit/clears for the trip should also fit.
And when I’m done with all of this, I confess that as a practicing and experienced mom, I look for available pediatrician office availability near my selected destination. Don’t be in a hurry.
