Multitasking Mom Packing Method

Since we’ve been traveling for a while now with a lot more coming up soon I have come up with a packing method that saves time and energy. When I get us ready for a trip I totally feel like The Multitasking Mom.

Here’s what I do:

  1. All laundry is done the day before packing begins.
  2. Every person is in charge of getting their own clothing and putting them on our dining room table.
  3. They are to be put down as outfits, including underwear, socks, etc.
  4. Other items such as pajamas, bathing suits, sweaters, etc. are put left out individually.
  5. I use my checklist which is saved on my computer to go over all the items we need.
  6. The suitcases are then packed by outfit so there’s no need to hunt and peck for what you need to wear.
  7. I also keep small bags for our personal items ready and just replenish as needed.
  8. My daughter has a small bag for Disney things, like her autograph book and pin lanyard that is ready to go too.

The only things I need to change is when we fly as I add a few carry on bags. Packing like this is a huge time saver. My family makes me like the best mom ever when this goes along smoothly.

  1. Sounds like a good method- you sound organized!

  2. We’re hitting the road to go to Baltimore again this weekend – perhaps I need to print this post out and use it as a guide for when I pack again on Friday!
