    Default Travel question - packing

    Who is the head luggage packer in your family?

    I had always prided myself on being an excellent luggage packer especially given all the experience I've had.

    Then in 1982 DH and I were getting ready for our honeymoon. Everything was laid out on our bed, DH was at work so I packed our bags. He came home and proceeded to repack everything.

    He didn't do it with an attitude; he just did it. I stood there watching him and made a wonderful major decision.......no need to get angry, he is forever more the designated luggage or anything packer. Guess what - he still is and he still does a wonderful job - better than I could!!

    So who gets the job/award in your home?

    We all do.

    When we go on our annual trip to Disney for Christmas, everyone is responsible for packing their own clothes. We have two large suitcases we always take. One holds clothes for warmer weather and the other for cooler weather. Each person puts his/her things in the appropriate suitcase.

    Each person knows what they will wear and need and can do it for themselves.

    Hubby wins the prize in our family, hands down. That man can find space where I swore none existed. Not only is he super efficient in packing bags, but he is also efficient in packing the trunk, the glove compartment, etc. The only thing I really pack better is my purse...........

    Everyone packs their own now. If we are going camping I pack the car and make the list as I will be cooking.
    DD just went on a weekend. I never asked her about what she brought.
    We are boyscouts after all.lol

    I start packing everyone a week in advance.. I make a check list for each person of what is packed and what still needs packed, then when all done, I check off everything and put the list in each luggage, so on return we can make sure we have everything..

    When we're flying, only carry-on is allowed.. I refuse to pay extra for under plane..

    We each pack our own bag, but I am better at squeezing things in when there's no space left.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. KH
