In our previous articles, we covered some packing strategies for traveling with kids, and now we will move on to share some other strategies.
1. Match your clothes
No matter where you travel, clothes are the most important items. But they can take up a lot of space in your suitcase, so you should think carefully about what clothes you'll need to carry and how you'll pack them. A general rule you can follow is to only bring clothes that you can mix and match and wear multiple times. For example, classic white T-shirts, loose pants, and multi-purpose scarves are suitable for various scenes, and you can choose these types of clothes as much as possible.
2. Follow one-week rule
The number of clothes you bring does not have to equal the number of days they travel. In other words, a three-week trip does not mean that you will bring different clothes for three weeks. Can you imagine how much clothes you'll need to pack when traveling with kids if you're only going to use one suitcase? So this packaging strategy doesn't work at all. Even for long trips, you only need to pack a week's worth of clothes. You only need to hand wash or pay for the laundry service provided by the destination, and you can guarantee that your clothes will last even 3 weeks. This also avoids paying for excess luggage at the airport.
3. Limit your fluids
When traveling with kids, you obviously need to pack a lot more. Generally speaking, your kids need products that are appropriate for their age, which means you can't use the same products and save space in your hand luggage. So it's best to keep these products at home in lots of small bottles or buy sample sized products. If you're just taking short trips with your kids, liquids in these containers will be more than enough for use. If your travel time is longer, you can also buy it in the local supermarket at the destination. Not only will this help you make the most of the space in your hand luggage, but it will also save you a lot of time because you won't be stuck at the airport having to scan all your liquids before boarding.
4. Utilize every corner of your suitcase
In addition to being careful about what you bring, you also need to make sure you're making the most of every inch of your suitcase. Smaller items such as socks, handkerchiefs and underwear should be rolled tightly to fill small gaps or pockets in hand luggage. Or stuff your shoes with socks so you can also maximize the available space.
