fouth of july and a fabulous friday freebie!

Happy early fourth of July! (I just had to share this picture of the boys last year in the Fourth of July parade! Too cute!) The boys and I are packin' it up and hittin' the road this weekend for some good 'ol fashioned family fun time! I don't know about you, but when it comes to packing for a big trip, I'm usually always the one in charge of getting everything together and get super anxious thinking that we're going to forget something! And in my house, since we have twins, if I forget one thing, we end up having to buy double when we arrive, which can be VERY expensive! So, I freak out and end up making about 10 different lists of things to pack; things to bring for myself, a list for the boys, a list for Kit, and scribbles of ideas that pop into my head last minute on post it notes. And then, after all that, I end up sticking them everywhere but where I can remember to find them! But this time, I finally got it together! I should have done this years ago, but last night I typed up a colorful, organized, simple list of the things we always pack for trips, printed it out on a big (hard to miss) sheet of paper and stuck it to the fridge! It looked like this:

Since many of you guys are probably heading out of town for this holiday weekend as well, I thought I'd share my list with you for a less stressed attempt at packing for the family! Just fill in the quantity for each item and scratch it off when it's packed! Tip: I print two of these lists for each trip, one for the way there, and one for the way back! This list prints on a regular 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper, so just click on the link below and press print! Have a happy and safe holiday everyone!

P.S. You can find this freebie and other goodies at Today's Creative Blog!
