We all look forward to our summer vacations. If you are lucky, you will get to kick back and relax, read a good book, have fun with your family, and maybe avoid cooking and cleaning for a few days or more. If you are a mom though, the magic of a summer vacation does not come without some major preparation and planning. Am I right? What you need is a packing checklist that will take some of the guesswork out of preparing for your trip.
When you are married with kids, packing for a summer family vacation is a whole new ballgame. You don’t just worry about forgetting items you need, but you also worry about forgetting items your family might need. The younger your children are, the bigger a worry this is.
I have used a number of packing checklists for my family over the years. What I have found is they were either way too vague or way too detailed. I also found that many packing checklists were more suited to individuals. They just didn’t make sense for families. That is why I created The Essential Summer Vacation Family Packing Checklist. It lists everything you need to remember to bring so you can relax and have an awesome vacation with your family.
