Looking forward to a family getaway over the Holidays? Use These Tips … #PGMom

Trips may be fun, but packing can be another story – especially with teens! So the next time you plan a trip, ease your stress and let your teens pack their own bags. To teach them how to become smart packers (and make sure you never get blamed for leaving behind their favourite sweater), show them these simple tips.

As you know, I have a teen!  We have travelled together and packing isn’t always fun; however, over the years I have learned how to make it less stressful.  I know how anxious my daughter is so I have learned to pull away and let her do “her thing”.  She needs to pack very early on … too early for me!  Actually, both my partner and daughter are very alike in this respect.  In order to maintain the peace, they both pack early while I pack one or two days before going on vacation.

There is one packing tip that I’d like to suggest; as it works for me:

sample sizes

Take Sample-Sized Product:  it’s a good idea to pack sample-sized products to use while travelling.  You can use the product and once it’s used up, you can throw away the empty package and then you don’t have to bring it back home.  Whatever samples I don’t use, I just leave behind for the next traveller to use.

Do you have any travel tips?

  1. We always made our teens pack their own bags, with one child though that was never a success. Still is not and he is now turning 20. My thoughts on that were always we can buy something if left behind. I also still think making a list and checking that they have packed electronic charges is helpful for not hearing the groans when they forgot their phone charger.
