Packing for a trip can seem a daunting task. Remembering everything and abiding TSA approved specifications are a lot for anyone. As someone that only travels with a carry-on, it makes travel easier but you also need to be sure everything fits. Since I travel frequently, I like it’s because I can be sure luggage isn’t lost because I haven’t checked anything. Not to mention I am also not dealing expensive checked bag fees.
I’ll be honest, my first trip to DC was unexpected. We took a spur of the moment trip to visit family in Gaithersburg Maryland and thought, well, why not? We’re here, right? That unexpected trip from sunny South Florida to the Maryland/DC area in the dead of winter was so unplanned that I didn’t even have proper attire. Boy, was I cold! That trip turned out to be the first of many weekends to DC as it is now one of my all-time favorites.
Staying organized just before leaving and while on a trip helps keep me on track and keep my family on track. These past few years I’ve traveled more than ever. While some are road trips, some are weekend trips or even longer stays, it’s always important to stay organized. To keep it all together, I’ve learned a few tips along the way I’ll share. Let’s face it, we all have mishaps and out of those arise some great ideas and reminders!
