Who is traveling for the holidays?

Since my extended family lives out of state, my husband and I travel frequently with our kids during the holiday season. After the many hours spent together traveling, it's safe to say I learned a thing or two about packing effectively! Plus, I'm a professional organizer, so packing is my jam. With the holidays quickly approaching, I thought it would be helpful to partner with The Container Store to combine their products with my expert tips to tell you everything you need to know about packing for and traveling with kids.

Tip 1: Make A List

The first thing I do before any trip is make packing lists for each member of my family. I love using Pack This! Classic Checklist for each family member. With pre-made packing checklists, I cross off unnecessary items for that family member and add missing items. For example, I add blankets for both my kids but cross off chewing gum and sleeping pills because they don't need those things.
