Is this what your luggage looks like when you're taking the kids with you for a long weekend? If so, you may need some tips about packing light. Rachel of Small Notebook only packed what you see in this photo when traveling with her 2 kids. Abroad. For 3 months. So what are her tips for packing light?
Rachel says you have to pack smart when traveling with young kids. For the younger set, she recommends a light stroller so your hands can remain relatively free. She recommends bringing a portable high chair seat. When packing the kids' clothes, Rachel used zip up pouches so their clothes weren't lost and messy in the larger suitcase. She even packed an entire suitcase of food. But even if your family doesn't, it's always a good idea to bring plenty of familiar snacks and staples in case nothing is open when you arrive or your flight is delayed.
