Is it Possible to Pack Light for a Family of 6?

And this is how.

If it is an overnight, you pack a pair of pajamas for everyone, a pair of clean underwear, a pair of clean socks, and a swimsuit (if you are going to need one).

Take a toothbrush, deodarant, a comb, and a couple of hair binders.

A camera.

A sleeping bag.

A pillow.

Make sure everyone is wearing shoes or you may have a problem.

If you have a baby, don’t skimp on the diapers and wipes.
Dad may want a new clean shirt.
If you have a potty training little dude, bring an extra pair of pants and underwear.
(Not that we would ever need anything like this!)

There you have it.  In one bag.
Then, the second bag can be food related–snacks, sippy cups, paper products, etc.

Each child can bring 3 or 4 toys.
And we are done!

One night in a hotel can be accomplished in two bags.

Now, did we do this? 
Not so much because we had to bring Christmas presents and a cooler, but I guess I’m trying to say that we could have.
Or maybe I’m trying to say that we should have.
Yeah, that’s it!
