Packing for a vacation can make your experience more stressful than relaxing. Being as organized as possible is incredibly important. Once you set your vacation destination, start making a list of all the items you need to pack. This list can also be helpful when kids are packing, as they often want to pack their own bag but usually forget to pack the essentials. Lists can be a vacation packing lifesaver!
When packing, you may uncover items that you couldn’t find in time to sell at your garage sale. Instead of leaving them to collect dust and sit unused for another year, go to ClothingDonations.org and fill out a donation pickup request form. We’ll come pick it up for you so you don’t have to stop packing!
USA Today offered up this tip that we really like, which is to dress and pack in layers. This may seem like a silly suggestion if you’re taking a vacation to a warm destination; however, nights can be chilly anywhere. Having a sweatshirt or sweater paired with a t-shirt underneath is perfect for making sure you can stay warm or cool, no matter where you are!
Here’s a tip from USA Today. If you’re flying to your destination, it’s important to know how much it costs to check your bags. Likewise, for your carry-ons, be familiar with the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) policy for carrying on liquids, such as shampoo and deodorant. Being handed an unexpected, extra fee for baggage, or being held up in security because you packed too many liquids will make for a very stressful start to your vacation. Do some research prior to traveling, and save yourself the stress later!
