Serious Packing

I read somewhere online about a woman who packed for her kids by putting a complete outfit for each child in a ziplock bag and marking it with their name and date to be worn. Since I am going to Hawaii in a few days, I thought I would try it. Packing for 3 kids under 5 for 7 days felt like a daunting task. At first, I wondered what I had gotten myself into. I was surrounded by a thousand little ziplock bags and piles of clothes… But when it was all said and done, this is what I was left with!

A wonderfully organized, easy to look through suitcase! To keep the system going, all you do is put the dirty clothes back into the ziplock at the end of the day. No more rummaging through a thousand articles of clothing trying to figure out what to wear. Hooray! Hawaii, here I come…
