The Eagle Creek Pack It Cubes keep kids’ clothes organized.

Packing Cubes: We got these awesome packing cubes before we had kids to fit our Eagle Creek suitcases, and I’ve never looked back. It turns out they fit kids’ clothes perfectly, too.

JetKids Bedbox: I’ve only recently discovered this new product, but it’s crazy useful for airline travel with youngs kids. It turns any airplane seat into a flat bed surface and doubles as not only a suitcase but as stroller, too. Brilliant!

Kids Rolling Suitcases: My kids pack their own suitcases of important things these days. I love the bigger Yodo Kids brand with more pockets, as well as the smaller Popatu type for younger kids. They both turn into backpacks to navigate trickier terrains or if they need their hands free.

Everyone in our family uses these labels for everything.

Labels: I confess I use these labels for school and everything else, not just travel. But they come in especially handy for labeling suitcases and anything else that might go an unintentional adventure without us.
