loading the carWhat’s your biggest challenge when it comes to actually packing up the family and heading off on a family vacation? Chances are it’s knowing what–and how–to pack for everyone.


First you have to have the right suitcase. Then you have to know what to put it in. Finally, you have to know how to pack everything you and the kids will need into that tiny little suitcase.
