Works-For-Me Wednesday: Kids Packing Idea

My older kids are at my mom’s this week. While I was helping them pack, I was afraid that my daughter would run out of matching clothes, since her jeans will match anything, but she had other pants and skirts that needed a certain shirt to match them.

I had packed her swimming clothes and pool shoes in a ziplock bag all together, but I didn’t want to use all my ziplock bags just for packing. So I just used some plastic grocery bags. I didn’t tie them or close them, but I just folded them closed around each outfit. That way she could see what was inside, but it would be clear what things needed to be worn together so that she would come out even at the end of the week.


  1. Now why didn't I think of that? LOL! I, too, love the idea of bagging the matching outfits, but don't want to indulge in the over-expensive ziploc bags. Phew... WalMart bags here we come!
    I hope the kids have a great time.

  2. That is a great idea! Very frugal and we're all looking for ways to save money these days!

  3. I do this with the ziplock bags from Dollar Tree!

  4. Neat idea. We run into the same thing on many of our trips. We always count outfits before we leave, but something always happens. We will try to place each outfit in it's own bag on our next trip.
