Packing (11)

Next is the folding & fitting!  Like I said yesterday, we all get 1 BAG, this bag.  Little guy & I will share a bag, and I will use the other bag for our stuffs (the AND things) … still only 3 bags!

Tips to fit everything & staying organized on the move …

  • Fold/Roll Combo ~ like they do in the Army (my Dad taught me)
  • Space Saver Bags.. the roll up kind for your unmentionables.  Not great for anything you don’t want wrinkled.
  • Meds … take prescription bottles!  Downsize other pills, I bought these lil bagsfor my vitamins, Advil, etc.
  • Travel containers ~ try and rePurpose, if you can’t, I HIGHLY recommend GoToobs.
  • Separate bags so you can grab what you need, and so others can grab what they need (i.e., kids & husbands)

Packing (17)

It may seem NUTS, so what! I never stress once I am on the road, I know that I have the important things, and there is always a store.  So there you go Monique
