Travel Tip – Take This Item On Your Next Trip!
In a few days my family is heading out on a week long cruise and I couldn’t be happier. We’ve been saving and counting down the days for a very long time. Traveling with me is my husband, 2 young girls and a smelly teenage boy….all in one cabin….one small tiny cramped cabin. Things get messy very fast. Here’s one tip that will help you out a ton!
The first thing I put in the bottom of my suit case is a pop-up laundry hamper. I’ve had this trusty laundry hamper for 15 years and it’s served me well! Bringing this little bit of home with you on vacation will help keep your room much more organized.
On our first family vacation I didn’t pack a hamper. Sure, they had a thin plastic laundry bag that held like 3 things, but that didn’t work for my family of 5. I had a heck of a time trying to keep my children’s clean and dirty clothes separate. They would take off their damp beach clothes that were full of sand and drop in their suitcase with their clean clothes! Now I place the laundry hamper in a corner of the room and that’s where all the dirty clothes end up.
Along with packing the laundry hamper you’ll need a large trash bag for the clothes on your travel back home. When you get home all of your dirty clothes are in one spot and ready to wash. I’m not sure how 1 week of vacation clothes can somehow turn into 18 loads of laundry! It’s mystery that may never be solved.
I hope that this travel tip helps you on your next family vacation, it has sure been a major help in my travels!
