Our little family was gone on a couple different vacations pretty much the ENTIRE month of June! I knew space was going to be limited- so between reading blogs, watching Instagram stories and reading Amazon reviews- this momma was prepared this year!
1// Packing Cubes– These are a game changer, friends!! First trip of the summer, I didn’t get the hype. Second trip is when it all clicked, but it wasn’t until I was packing for us to come home. Everyone had clean clothes packed in their own cube and it went straight to their room when we got back. It was AMAZING! I was able to fit so much more in one suitcase then I would normally be able to. The price on these are really good, too!
2// Toiletry Bucket- This was probably my favorite purchase. It holds full size products, its waterproof (just incase there are any spills) and it is a fantastic price point. You could also carry your makeup in it. These are one of those pieces that every member of our family will be having!
3// Travel Makeup Train Case– There is plenty of room in this makeup case and the separators can be moved around to fit your specific needs. I have been on the hunt for a functional makeup bag/case and finally my look is over!
4// SCOUT 4 Boys Bag– I like big bags and I cannot lie!! There is nothing better than big ole’ bags to fit all of your stuff in! I personally like to pack little bags into bigger bags. For example- the packing cubes into the Scout 4 boys bag. Or when the girls were younger or still sometimes now, I will pack outfits into ziplock bags. In one ziplock it would have everything they need- dress, pampies (that is what Millie Cate calls her panties and it has stuck), little shorts to cover her pampies, bow/headband/hair ties and socks if she would need them. That way whoever is getting the girls dressed could just grab a ziplock baggie and go!
We have driven to all the places we’ve been this summer and there have been a few things that have been really nice to have in the car! Side note- I am the worlds worst passenger in the car. I HATE CAR TRIPS, ROAD TRIPS OR WHATEVER YOU’D LIKE TO CALL THEM.
I believe it was on another blog, but I ran across this potty and it has been a complete lifesaver while we are in the car. Brynlee has always been good about going to the potty before leaving the house. Millie Cate is just Millie Cate and she marches to the beat of her own drum and always HAS TO GO while we are in the car, whether it is around town or on road trips. We also have to have Sweet-tart Rope(me), Starbursts(Bill and Brynlee) and Skittles (Millie Cate) for our road trips. Lets not forget about watching “Belle Beast” and listening to “Be” and “Middle” on repeat! These are the days, right?
