My family LOVES to travel! We are all wanderlusters at heart and always look forward to our next adventure. As the mom of three teenagers, who always want to take almost everything they own with them, and the wife of an outdoorsman who is always packing hunting and fishing gear- I feel like we look like the Clampetts heading out of town! So whether we are heading to a fun city, the beach, the mountains, or on one of our many road trips to visit family in Tennessee…we take a lot of stuff with us.
Being organized for a trip is essential to a successful and stress-free family vacation (well, is there such a thing?!) and I have learned to pack our suitcases and other gear in the back of my Suburban like a masterful game of Tetris. As long as you have good travel and accessory bags that fit well inside your suitcases and stack well in the trunk of your car, the back of your SUV, or your car topper-you can easily fit it all!
The key to organizing for a family road trip is making sure you have all the necessary travel accessories for your suitcases and duffle bags. Our bins and tote bags are great for the miscellaneous stuff that can be used for packing as well as organizing for just a day excursion.
Putting dresses and blouses, or dress shirts and ties, in garment bags help to keep nicer outfits fresh and wrinkle free! Our selection of garment bags are perfect for all family members.
And don’t forget, everyone needs their own laundry bag for their dirty clothes! Our laundry bags come many styles to choose from that can be used at home and on the road.
Packing several cosmetic and jewelry cases for the girls and dopp kits for the guys helps to keep the small things organized. See our wide selection of styles and sizes! With as many travelers as I have, monogramming our travel gear helps keep our stuff personable and organized in our VRBO or hotel.
A cooler bag for the car helps to keep those travel drinks and snacks cold.
And last but not least, be sure to bring your travel journal to write about all the fun family adventures to treasure for a lifetime!
I hope your 2020 adventures are fabulous and fun…and organized!
