I was way excited for our box and packed all of the items for our trip out of town. What else did I take with me? Well, these tips for traveling this holiday season.
Tip 1: Check out Autotrader: Making sure you have a car that will get you from point A to point B is crucial. Anytime you plan to head out of town make sure Autotrader is the first thing on your to-do list.
Tip 2: Make a checklist: Checklist are a great way to stay organized. It helps to remember everything you need and make sure nothing gets left behind at home.
Tip 3: Check the weather: always remember to check your weather app because being stuck on the road in bad weather can be not so fun.
Tip 4: Pack snacks: What is a road trip without snacks right? As you drive you are sure to see a ton of tempting restaurants. Having snacks will not only save you money but also save you time by not having to stop.
Tip 5: Pack a potty: Yes, this might make you giggle but traveling with littles can be unpredictable, and sometimes they just can’t hold it. No rest stop? No problem, because remember that potty you packed in your trunk?
Tip 6: Dress comfortably: Being on the road can be exhausting. Make sure you dress comfortably rather than dressing to impress. Your family won’t care what you wear and your body will thank you for the comfortability.
Tip 7: Bring chargers: Rather you bring along your phone, tablets, laptops or any electronic device to make sure you always bring an extra charger or two. Because if your spouse is like mine he either 1; forgot his charger and 2; now wants to use yours. It’s always great to have backups.
Tip 8: Have fun and make memories: Traveling during the holidays can and probably will get crazy. Don’t forget to take those crazy moments in and have fun. Take a moment to close your eyes and take it all in. Cherish those memories grab your Instax camera and flick it up!
