How to Pack for Your Family for a Spring Break Road Trip

Posted by Adele Poudrier on

With the official start to spring just weeks away, we can’t shake the excitement for spring break. Whether you’ve had your trip booked for months or plan to stay local for a little staycation, it’s always nice to set aside some time to reset in spring. If this year’s spring getaway is with the whole family, it’s easy to get overwhelmed just thinking about packing for everyone. However, we consulted with the best of the best when it comes to prepping for a big road trip. Our resident public relations expert, Jenna, is no stranger to travel. Between frequent business trips and annual family vacations, she’s become a packing pro. She’s gearing up for her upcoming spring break trip with her husband and toddler to Siesta Key, Florida and shared her top packing tips with us.

“Instead of taking two hanging organizers on our trip, now I can take just this one. It fits full-size shampoo bottles and the best part about it is my husband and I can pack together.”

“Rylee gets her own rolling luggage and her own cosmetic. I always like to pack this [Medium Cosmetic] for her so I don’t forget all of her necessities.”


“If you don’t want to spend all of your time ironing when you get to your destination and you want to fit a lot in your bag, go ahead and roll all of your clothes.” 

“Clearly, I like big bags and I can not lie! This is the new Lighten Up Large Family Tote and [it] fits 12 beach towels!”
