What about school supplies ? Separate bag out have kid be responsible? She'll be 7 in oct
The idea of living on only one carry on is scary, we are over packers, even for our short holidays we have massive luggage... I decided to go with a backpack instead to force us to pack light. It is very difficult to choose what to take what to leave behind. But having a backpack limit the amount you can put in. I read so many lists on blogs that we have an idea of what essentials to take in general. I bought a few items like convertible/multiway dresses and zip-off pants just to add to our options but we mainly will take things we like wearing at home. We will be gone for a full year and; I don't want to have to buy too many things on the road if I can help it; as, we will be traveling on a budget so we are working very hard that list.
