How on earth do you pack light for a trip?
We are going to see my mom for 4 days, 3 nights. The train ride each way is 12 hours so we have to bring a bag of just toys and snacks. Just the girls and I are going, so diapers, wipes, pjs for 3, swimsuits for 3, toiletries for 3, 3 outfits for 3, and sandals for 3 since you have to wear closed toe shoes on the train. The trains are known for being either ungodly hot or freezing, so I packed hoodies for the girls and a receiving blanket for my baby.
Somehow this adds up to a backpack and 2 crammed duffle bags. Plus I am bringing the stroller so its slightly easier to get around the train stations.
How could I cut down on "stuff" and make this manageable? Its ridiculous!
