The Great Packing Plan





Hello! With summer here I wanted to share a tool that has come in very handy for packing for trips. I am someone who is somewhat forgetful, which made packing for trips stressful. And thus…the great packing plan was born! The plan is a list of everything I need to pack for trips that I just check off as I go. This is also a good tool for older kids packing their bags solo for the first time. This plan of course is a sample, as yours will probably look a bit different from mine, but it is a little something to get you started. Happy travels!
