Last weekend we went out of town for my sons football tournament. Packing for three kids and myself for a weekend stressed me out. I never know what I will need and I always pack way way more then I need. During our stay I went crazy trying to keep everyones clothes together. With that being said, I decided to try something different this weekend.
We are going to visit my mother in law and it’s about 4-5 hours away. We are staying four to five days. So I packed an outfit for each day along with underwear and matching hair bow for the girls into a ziploc bag. I actually found the idea on Pinterest. Imagine that. 🙂 I have to say this is so nice! The thought of not having to dig for underwear or the matching top and bottoms. I am loving this system! This way I don’t over pack. I did pack a couple extra outfits just in case. I also packed their pajamas in ziplock bags. I am telling you this worked out perfectly!
I also packed snacks for the kids. This made our stay much more enjoyable because I had all of their favorite things right there. It also helped with the car ride. No unnecessary stopping means we arrive quicker to our destination. Yay!
