Totally not crazy! If I could have started, I would have already. (too busy with work schedule) But I am starting next Friday. That will give me 3 weeks to get the last minute things or see if I am forgetting anything! Let me know if you have any other tips as you pack. It's almost here!!!

Gonna think I'm crazy

Okay, so you're gonna think I'm crazy, but you can also use the paper toilet seat covers in public bathrooms. I had a friend tell me about this and I thought she was crazy, but they really do work!

That's what I do,,matching hair band too! (Minus the number and spreadsheet however). It's certainly a time saver during our stay!

I am the opposite, we get new clothes ( especially t-shirts) as well as some new undies and socks for our trips. - The undies and socks are usually to supplement what we already own so we can have nice ones for each day of our trip

I most certianly don't want to look like a grubby frump in old clothes in all my vacation photos. I am not 'sylish'. I am a shorts and t-shirts kinda gal, but I am not going to go on holidays wearing things destined for the rag bag, so I have more room in my suitcase going home.

The $20 saved in extra bag fees are not worth it to me! YMMV

Saved Lots of Money with this one.

I had cases of water shipped down to our disney resort before we left. I went to samsclub.com Pick the ones that say shipping included, it was about $7 a case. If you try and ship it yourself it will cost to much so don't bother. I also bought a soft sided thermos bag from target and filled it with ice at night to get the water cold, then I refilled in the morning with more ice and had cold water all day long. One note is that the bag is heavy but we use a stroller for our youngest so it is not a big deal.

I have to agree. I usually buy all new clothes for Vacay. Especially for my kiddos because I want them to wear Disney shirts etc. If I let them wear the clothes before, they would be all stained up...lol I do like the idea of bringing toiletries that are almost all used up so you can just throw them away though

We prefer to put it in the closet instead.

Great Idea! I have considered the garden grocer but all I want is water. So you have it delivered to the resort and then you go to thje front desk???? I am not a Sam's Club member but I do have costco...I wonder if that would work. Thanks
