As I’m sat here writing, the rain is lashing on the window, the six week holidays are over, summer has well and truly gone. So what am I doing? I’m thinking about a holiday! We haven’t been abroad as a family since well before Archie was born and due to his Autism we haven’t even considered going too far as he struggles in many situations but I think next year we might actually be ready for it.

For the past couple of years we’ve had our beloved Campervan so know how to pack on limited space but packing for a family of four when your going abroad? This is going to take some planning!

The packing ALWAYS falls to me, every time, but I am a it of a control freak so I’m not sure I’d let the hubby take over anyway! I like to have a family holiday checklist so I know everything that needs to be packed is packed so seeing as I’m writing mine I thought I’d share the printable with my lovely readers too, I’m good like that. Just click on the image & download and it’s all yours.



There’s also a fab video that shows you how to pack in 18 seconds!

Are you a pro packer or do you need the lists like me?

I’m joining in with these lovely linkies

    Oh this is good. I HATE packing and always take way too much. We need to pack 2 in the next 3 weeks. Thanks for linking up to #TheList x
