My sister-in-law and her family just drove 4,000 miles cross country, through 14 states for a week in the Smokies and one with us in Michigan. Aren’t you tired just thinking about it? But this gal is organized, which is half the battle, especially on a trip with little ones.
If you’ve traveled with family and have to make a one night hotel stop on the way to your destination, you know what a pain it is to lug each person’s suitcase into the hotel. Being the organized guru that she is, my sister-in-law has a “hotel” bag. This bag contains what they need for one night in the hotel for each person. In her case, that’s one bag for four people.
It includes just the basics:
- change of clothes
- bathing suits, if there’s time to take a dip
- maybe a book
Genius, right! Much better than lugging four suitcases out for a one night stay, don’t ya think?
What do you do to make traveling easier for your family?
Have a good one! Be back soon…
