Tips for Family Travel

By Trisha

I remember the days flying with my five kids, packing and checking seven over-stuffed suitcases, portable cribs, strollers and then walking onto the plane with a minimum of seven carry-on items, several backpacks and a diaper bag. Today, with all of the new regulations and changes, we have become a smart packing flying family.

If you see my family at the airport these days you would notice each of my children pulling their own carry-on suitcase filled with everything they need for a family vacation, along with a backpack– no more over-stuffed checked baggage.

This mom has learned a few tips and tricks when it comes to packing a family of seven for one, two or three week vacations all in carry-on suitcases.

Packing for a family of seven in carry on suitcases! Wow! If that's manageable, then I'll use it as I definitely have problems packing for ME and looking like I've packed for a family of five, haha!
