How To Pack For a Long Weekend

How To Pack For a Long Weekend

We love a weekend getaway! Taking a long weekend [or three-day trip] is a great way to unwind and recharge. The change of scenery can be extremely reviving. Whether you jump in the car or hop on a plane, venturing out makes for a fun way to shake things up for the better.


Traveling alone is an integral part of growing up. As we build circles of friends and expand families of our own, it can be precious to travel with loved ones too.


Maybe you are just packing for yourself. Maybe you’re the designated packer for the whole family. Keep the joy alive when preparing for a trip by following a standardized list.
