The Best Packing List For Family Travel

The Best Packing List For Family Travel

It’s time to get those suitcases out and load up before your next adventure. I’m always excited to be hours away from taking off on our vacation, that is, until I remember the daunting task that lay ahead of me, PACKING!!! This was never a problem when I only had to pack for myself. That all changed when my husband and I decided to have not one, not two, but three kids! I imagine watching me pack probably looks a lot like watching a dog chase his tail!

There are so many things to think about when packing for yourself or your family.  Ask yourself a few of these questions to help determine what situations you should pack for. What will the weather be like? What attire will I need for different activities? Will I be able to wash clothes during our trip? Another handy way to organize your suitcase (especially with kids) is to use plastic zip bags to sort out daily clothes and accessories. Label each bag with what day it should be used.

Family Travel Packing List 

t turns out list-making has become my hobby since becoming a mom. I make grocery lists, school lists, activity lists, honey-do lists, and of course a packing list! The list includes clothing, toiletries, miscellaneous items, and a section to write your own personal list.  I hope this easy and handy Packing Printable will make your packing experience a little less stressful.
