Packing for a trip is always such a pain...and unpacking is absolutely dreadful...but that's jumping too far ahead.
I'm leaving to go out of town next week for my brother's wedding and I'm putting off packing...it's so much more fun to be stressed and yelling at people instead of doing things early...isn't that what everyone does???
So instead of waiting till this weekend - we leave on Tuesday - did I mention I have to pack my kids stuff to go to Nana & Papa's house too?!?
I'm starting today *patting myself on the shoulder* and I have something to make the packing better....
I put all my kids clothes, for each day, in a gallon ziplock bag. It has everything they need in the bag, ie clothes, socks, hair bows.
They hold all my clothes...one bag even has two sets of clothes....and my jeans - with a jacket and top...me and my suitcase are now in heaven!
I put the jewelry that goes with each outfit in a sandwich size ziplock bag inside the big bag. When I'm done wearing the clothes, I'll stick them back into the bag and zip it up - just in case it stinks - I'm not a stinky person - hiking can make clothes not smell pleasant...
So now when the lady ask to search my bags, I will gladly hand over my beautifully organized suitcase and I'll wear my ugly bra, just in case.
