Packing for the family holiday

Packing for the family holiday


  • Pack light, take only what you need. Really. Truly. In fact, you should probably only take half of what you think you’ll need and even that’ll probably be too much.
  • Spread everyone’s clothes across all your suitcases. If one bag is lost then one person doesn’t lose everything.
  • It’s easier to manage a number of lighter weight bags than one seriously heavy one.
  • Give each child their own bag to carry with their special belongings inside. The small kids’ carry-on bag with wheels and the extendable handle is the easiest for kids to manage. They can always pull a bag they can’t carry.
  • Pack your bags for your trip and then carry them around the block. It will inspire you to rethink what you packed and simplify.
