We just got back from a week at the beach. In addition to our clothes, we had to take bed linens and towels for our stay. Our family of six traveled in a Chrysler Town and Country mini van and we didn’t have to use the roof carrier!

My favorite vacation packing tip—-


I packed all of our clothes and linens into 4 laundry baskets. (I even had extra shoes, diapers, sunscreen, and some of our food in there too. We use the large rectangular ones. They will fit stacked 2 high.

Here’s a picture of the van after one laundry basket and some other stuff (like a Pack n Play) had already been removed. It’s not the best picture, but I, believe it or not, wasn’t thinking about getting a picture for the blog!
Packing in laundry baskets definitely “Works for me” and I hope someone else finds it a useful idea.

  1. Great idea! I will try that the next time we take a trip.

  2. Me again (anonymous). I wanted to let you know your Twitter link doesn't go to your Twitter page.

    Also, if you want to know who this Anonymous is, I'm Amanda at Moving Forward (http://movingforward-amanda.blogspot.com) and I am a fellow homeschooler.

  3. Hmmm! That is a neat idea. The dirty laundry is already in the basket. Clever!



  4. What a great idea! One benefit is that you don't have things rolling around all over your vehicle. I am so going to have to steal this idea. 🙂
