There are several things you have to consider before you start packing.
First thing is how long are you going to be gone for?
Say your gone for 5 days. Then you need 5 out fits. If your like me and want choices take an extra 2 shirts and pants or shorts. Or if your like Hank and you wear several pairs of underwear a day make sure you account for that when packing.
Second thing is there a washer and dryer where you are staying?
If your answer is yes you don’t need an out fit for everyday.
Take the last two things I said and put them together so you ha love a washer and dry where your going and yoir going to be gone for 5 days not counting travel days.
Then you should pack 3 or 4 outfits for choices every day and 5 underwear if you change it several time a day.
Next thing to count in is are you flying or driving. If you are driving you will need a travel bag for when you stop overnight.
Me personally I like to keep my travel bag clothes separate from everything else.
I also keep my hygiene bag separate so when you stop over night you just grab two bags and your good to go.
If you are flying you need to take something to do on the plan. Like a book or notebook and pen. Personally that’s what I’d take on a Plan.
Traveling with kids they need multiple things to keep them entertained for the trip. Thats why I packed several toys for them to play with in the car.
There are some things that I packed that were needed but can also be bought. Like diaper and wipes. Extra formula and baby food. Since we took a van we had the extra space and we already had enough I just went ahead and packed it.
But of you don’t have the space don’t worry you just pack enough for the trip and buy more when you need more.
I think that is the basics. If there is anything you wish was here but wasn’t leave a comment and let me know. I love getting feedback from my readers.
