    I just went to Dollar Tree last night and bought some things for my trip in June!! :thumbsup2 I only spent $20 but I got all kinds of stuff from this list: pop up boxes for organizing my kiddos "stuff" in the room, new toothbrushes for everyone, and these super cool drawstring backpacks for their travel "fun bags"! With 5 kids under 12, and a 20 hour drive, we need plenty of fun things for the trip!

    I haven't seen it listed but I actually learned this tip on Disboards, I use a clear backpack instead of a diaper bag. It makes it so much easier to go in the parks.
    Dog tag w/ info for my little one to wear as a necklace (maybe) or on shoe
    Bug repellant/ citronella bracelets.

    You could have a mixture of cold/hot weather, even in the same day! I would go for either t-shirt or tank, but add a light hoodie. Something you can easily roll up and put in your bag.

    Not sure if this is already on the thread but: glow sticks/bracelets

    Glow sticks go everywhere with us. I can snap a glow stick/bracelet and leave it on the night stand to act as a nightlight in the room. I snap a stick/bracelet and attach it to the towel rod in the bathroom. You can also easily take it off the night stand en route to the bathroom. I snap a stick/bracelet and attach it to the stroller at night in the park so I can find my stroller. When DD was little, I attached one to the back of her jacket, shorts... So I could see her if she wandered away from me in the park at night or we got separated in the crowd at night. And what kid doesn't like a glow stick during fireworks?
    I've also been known to hang one in the window of our room at CBR when I would go to the food court to get a snack at night. Always knew which room was mine on my return trip.

    I didn't see duffel bags.

    When we were at the World a decade ago we bought to much and needed to take our clothes carry on. We found these really cool bags at Wal Mart.

    It zips up into a little square say 12 x 12 and an 1" thick.



    Also another one similar to the glow sticks is a night light. Take out the standard white bulb and use Christmas bulbs. I like blue as its light enough but not to bright.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for mentioning corkscrew. We're getting wine from Garden Grocers and I would have been bummed if we couldn't open it.

    Don't laugh. Battery operated xmas mini lights for your stroller. This is a easy cheap way to tell your stroller apart from the other thousands of strollers, plus easy to find at night!

    :rotfl: Just checking in after a while away and getting caught up. You are 100 percent right about overpacking. Everytime we go I travel a little lighter. Now I just copy and paste the original list into a word document and erase all the stuff that doesn't pertain to me. It makes it very easy !


    Glad you enjoyed them ;)



    I should mention that the list was started before luggage fees :lmao:
