Episode 066: Packing for Family Trips



Grab your suitcase, your packing cubes, those nighttime diapers, and start praying because it’s time for a family trip!


On this episode, we’re talking about a ton of things that have been lifesavers on planes, trains, and automobiles with the littles. From airplane surprises to extra ziplock bags for accidents, when you’re planning ahead and expecting the unexpected, your family trip can be a little less bumpy.


I’m sharing the stuff you can start packing a week in advance straight out of the dryer in the laundry room, and the items you may consider shipping ahead to your final destination.


Although I cover a lot on this episode, I’ve put the whole list and then some in my Online Kids Course (see link below) that’ll have you feeling totally prepared for traveling with kids even if you’re completely outnumbered!
