In the past I’ve told you about my favourite travelling bags of all time– the EVOC line (available from WeArePassion.com). We have a serious love affair and I would never trade them for anything, but my packing organization doesn’t end with just the EVOC bag. Inside, I have my goods sorted into ‘packing cubes’ made by Heys Canada (undies and socks in one, pants and skirts, jammies, accessories etc.), rolled for easy identification. When I reach my destination, I simply unpack the cubes into drawers … and voila, organized genius!
Keeping organized on the road means that I can easily identify the laundry (use a pillow case!) and I’ll know which stuff belongs to which kid.
Look how easy it is to pack my bags:
The kids cubes are fantastic! You will need two sets to pack exclusively with the kids set, as they aren’t huge. If your children are ages 7/8 and up, they should just use a 5 piece set.
Maybe you’re like me and need to travel for business, for days at a time. You’ll need ways to spruce up your limited attire, so I always use one of these jewellery organizers, to keep smaller items safe and stowed.
And the cherry-on-top is that these packing cubes are environmentally friendly, made from 18 recycled water bottles. The 5 pack set is available in a wide variety of colours.
Pro Packing Tip:
When travelling with kids, you’ll need to have something for them to do in the car or on the flight. To ‘Be That Mom’, be sure to have some granola bars and other light snacks on hand (beware of liquids!), a journal for your child to doodle or write in, a video game system or tablet, and a few new toys for a fun surprise along the way. Travelling with children doesn’t need to be hard, but you do need to plan! Store your carry-on items in one of the smaller packing cubes and keep in an accessible place.
