[QUOTE=DisneyTeacher;1082609]:laugh: this is so funny because I leave tomorrow morning and I just started packing a couple of hours ago. I put it off all day and finally got started after dinner. I never start more than a day or two before because I jus pack and unpack over and over.[/QUOTE]
I do the same thing. But we’re a family of 7. So I generally pack full sized bottles of shampoos, body washes, etc. Which of course we use til the AM of the trip. Same with the clothing. There are always things we wear a day or 2 prior to the trip that needs washed. Usually the packing goes like this:
4 Days out:
Suit cases come out
Beach towels are counted/packed into the beach bag.
Inner tubes/wings for the little kids packed.
Snacks/Drinks get bought
3 Days out:
Last clothing items are bought that I deemed needing replaced OR swim suits get replaced if they haven’t been already
2 Days out:
I plan out each outfit for the 5 kids and dh. I gather what is clean and pack it.
Pack PJs-you’d think this would be simple, but not with an 11 yr old dd in tow :pinch:
Online Check In
1 Day out:
Wash all clothing items going on the trip & pack
Pack up any shower items that can be packed
Pack up any non refrigerated snacks
Any and all packing left, which isn’t much, just the shower stuff used that AM by me and dh usually.
Pack the van
Gone by 7:30 AM.
