The worst offenders tend to be loaded with sugar, sodium, and bloat-causing preservatives, and all that packaging isn’t doing anything good for.

three snacks we love Besides grabbing a piece of fruit or whipping up some homemade hummus, it’s always good to have ready-made snacks to throw into your workout bag, backpack or kid’s lunchbox.

  • When I go to the beach I bring two hydro flask water bottles (like the heavy duty water bottles that keeps ice in it for 2 days and doesn’t sweat and even after the ice melts the water is still ice cold. I have the 40 ounce sizes). Anyways long story short one is full of just ice and the other is full of water and ice. As for food/snacks I freeze the applesauce/yogurt pouches and use them as ice packs and pack everything in reusable containers. I usually pack a sandwich or salad and a frozen yogurt or applesauce and my own homemade trail mix

  • Did you have to take out the snack bags at security? Did the applesauce give you any issues? Love the info! Planning our first big family trip with flights.

  • Cedar wood, you would not be able to use that from one country to the next, unless you brought a piece every country you went to, some country’s do not allow timbers etc into a company

  • Great ideas there, those snack pots are genius! Too many snacks??? Hey, whatever it takes to get you through hon. Last thing you need is 3 hungry, grumpy kiddos!
    You are such a thoughtful, loving mom. Great video, can’t wait to find out if this was a success, hope so. �� xxx

  • Being a bit of a photography geek I would like to chime in on camera lenses.
    Zoom lenses are great and all but make sure to get one that has a wide aperture across the whole range of focal lengths.
    Most „travel zooms“ with an aperture of 3.5-6.3 in my experience do ok in bright daylight but as soon as it gets a little darker (or overcast) they start to struggle. For most things a 28-70mm f/2.8 and a 50mm f/1.8 will do fine (I was lucky to get an f/1.4). You can even get by with just a 50mm. Your mileage will vary, of course. Stay away from specialty lenses like massive zoom lenses, T/S or fish eyes unless you are absolutely 100% sure you need them, which ties in with the idea of „get rid of stuff you rarely (if ever) use“. An extra pound or two of dead weight in glass quickly becomes a massive pain in the butt. I‘ve been there and I hated it. Speaking of „pain in the butt“: maybe a bit „duh“, but: bring spare batteries AND memory cards. Use smaller memory cards and swap them every once in a while. Sure, having one massive card that holds two weeks worth of pictures may seem convenient, but if that one card either dies or gets lost, you will beat yourself up over it. If you can, dump your raw files (or at least some JPGs) online. Maybe even mail memory cards home. A Gnarbox may be another option (but I have not yet had the opportunity to try one). If you are serious about photo stuff it is easy to end up packing everything bar the kitchen sink.

    My 2 cents. Hope this helps!

  • Some great travel tips! Just a comment on Zips. When a zip fails that is usually game over coats, jackets, bags, pouches buying cheap is definetlty a false economy, buying light means more fragile, so a good shout to think about zip usage once a day usage packing cube light and / or lower cost, frequent daily use go with high quality gear. I have a Lowe Alpine day pack used daily for some ten years the fabric is now wearing at rub points but the Zips still work great! Happy travels…

  • I don’t have kids. I don’t have plans for kids. I have a loose commitment to revisit the kid-conversation with my husband in a few years. So why do I want that Mory June Moses bag so badly?!

  • Im going to North Carolina in 3 weeks! I wanted to see traveling hacks and your video was the first one that popped up Jordan:) Thank you for sharing what you pack for all those beautiful humans out there, You inspired me to be more organised than rather just shove things in my bag. Your really a life saver and thank you sooo much for this video because without you I would just be shoving things in my suitcase lol! im so happy I saw this video:)
    Have a good day Jordan,
    Bye:)

  • Only problem with Merino is cost and Moths love eating holes in it (Uk) store in sealed plastic box. Cycle World gas given the run and hike community arm and leg warmer tubes which are very light / compact and make shorts and T-shirts more versatile and tubes can be rolled down or removed when warmer.

  • wish i was going to the beach, its under 60F here:( but, can you do some lunch videos for the summer?
    love this <3 hope u get a great week

  • We are going to Mexico too but on a cruise btw I love you videos and I found a unicorn scoot case for my daughter she is gonna love it thank you

  • I don’t have kids but this was such a good idea! When I was little, I loved having my little stash of things to do on car trips. ��

  • Instead of a water bottle I take a stainless steel flask with me on each trip. This is clean and empty; when I reach security I take the top off and leave it open in the bin so that security can check it. Once I’m through security I get it filled with coffee at Starbucks or wherever and this will then last me for a short haul flight… it’s easy to just keep sipping through the flight, and you get a discount from the coffee shop for using your own cup.

  • I’m really interested in the aer travel pack 2 but I’m worried that it wouldn’t work as a personal item that fits under the seat in the planes. You have have any thoughts on this?

  • Wow never thought I would see the day when people would have to watch a video on how to pack or how to dress. I must be blessed, these things have always just been natural for me.

  • Does TSA allow metal knife, fork, and spoon? I was stopped by TSA in San Jose when I had a nail clipper tiny Swiss army knife. McDonald’s was not allowed to give me a flimsy plastic knife to cut my pancakes. I watched similar videos where they recommend a reusable spork that has a serrated edge for cutting food. Camping spork with the fork on one end and spoon on the other with a serrated edge in middle. What about a multitool? Multitool useful when camping or removing boot bindings. Shampoo bar instead of liquid shampoo. Reusable containers for toiletries.

  • When I went a holiday overseas and went to 4 country’s the thing I learned is don’t pack a backpack full of activities, it’s too heavy to carry around the airport, just have a device and headphones and snacks. And if the flight has TVs each seat then only pack headphones and snacks.

  • Did you also make videos for cases, when you’re on a budget?
    For example…items from peak design are quite expensive. not everybody can afford this

  • I did the snack bags in the carry ons for our trip to France over the summer. My partner even got one, because he’s worse than our son when it comes to snacking. I even put hot cocoa packets, oatmeal packs, snacks, and flavored water packets in the checked bags so we had easy options at the hotel so we weren’t stepping out for every little thing. It worked so well. It also was great to have a gallon ziplock on the flight, because we could put all our trash inside to throw away before we landed. Also in the bags was disinfectant wipes for the tray tables/arm rests and hand wipes. I did a bunch of other prep before the trip for various things and it worked so well to solve those simple worries or needs and keep my anxiety at bay. For example combination locks for all the bags, same combo for everyone… packing cubes to keep clothes as wrinkle free because we were attending a wedding… travel size iron….travel size folding booster seat…. clear toiletry bags for everyone…enough cables for each device and the proper converter to handle them all at once so no one fought… Tile tracker on my sons carry on backpack…a scannable ID bracelet that had our contact into if he was lost and couldn’t find someone to speak English… etc etc etc. So prepared. It went insanely smoothly. Thanks for the tips,:)

  • As an experienced 8hr traveler myself with 4 under 8, you can NEVER go overboard with snacks. We just started traveling with backpacks this year but they get 1 toy, 2 books, 1 coloring book and 1 zip lock of crayons. But we definitely stock tons of snacks for an adult to dole out. My toddler ate an entire box of vanilla wafers one trip! When mine were all littles, I would prepack the jumbo boxes of fish/grahams/etc into snacksize zip locks so I could just toss it to them without too much thought and baby food pouches are your friend! I still don’t understand why being in the car makes them bottomless pitts, but I think you chose well with your food items! Oh my word though, I wouldn’t be able to handle the cats by the return trip lol

  • I’ve been wondering where you were, but if I lived next to a beach I wouldn’t care about YouTube either! Have a great day at the beach!

  • My tip: mail things to yourself instead of carrying them. You can mail things to yourself at a family members home if you’re going there, or to a hotel if you’ve made reservations ahead of time. If you don’t have a reservation, look into the post office and see if you can mail something to yourself c/o general delivery. Many post offices will hold items for you for a short period of time. This way you can have your full bottle of shampoo, your favorite pocket knife, or whatever you feel you need that either the airlines wont allow, or is just too much weight or takes too much space in your bag. In fact, you can often travel with just a small hand bag or fanny pack, carrying your ticket, I.D., a comb and lip balm, just a few basics, and just mail all your clothes and toiletries ahead. This works for the return trip as well!

  • Never heard that tip before, practice your trip. Seems simple but kind of blew my mind lol. I’m very nervous about traveling, but will definitely try this. Thank you so much!

  • I don’t think anyone is going to say you over packed. If you have taken a trip with kids you HAVE to bring a lot of snacks. A hungry kid turns into a hangry kid. Which is what you are trying to avoid on a trip. Im flying with just one 7 year old and I packed enough snacks to last us a week.����‍♀️

  • They still sell juice boxes here in the US. I may have laughed at your water container that you said was huge. That would be enough for me, what would my kids drink?.. but I guess not everyone drinks as much as me��

  • This is quite refreshing in my opinion. usuaIIy when l type ‘what to pack for a vacation’ I always get women with WAY too bright bedrooms talking like ‘Hey guys! welcome back to my channel, OMG!!1!’ I mean, like what you want, but I prefer these type of videos. Thank you!

  • We did something similar when my kids were little and we drove from Alabama to Disney World in Orlando. Back then(the mid 80’s) we had Tupperware Containers for their snacks.We bought a few special toys that we gave them when they became irritable or just needed to quieten them down. LOL

  • I love this! I packed 3 kids ages 17m, 6yrs, 8yrs for our 24+ hr car ride to florida from Wisconsin (brothers wedding and disney (obviously lol) )
    I made seat back organizers and put together pencil boxes with magnets for alphabet magnets to practice spelling…complete with their own grade level word lists, lego boxes, coloring books, reading books, snacks. They thought it was great! I also had a giant basket of snacks all sorted out for each person (we also traveled with my dad so there was 6 of us in a rented mini van and I was pregnant. It was quite the adventure). I’m glad I did everything the way I did because it made life soooooo much easier!
    Keep doing videos like this, I loved it!

  • Energy balls are amazing and I love how versatile they are. And yeah, they still sell juice boxes! We pack a lot of similar things when we go out on the lake on my parent’s pontoon.

  • I’m a truck driver. What is the best way to live out of one bag. But keep your dirty clothes seperate from your clean clothes. That has been an ongoing issue.

  • I love these types of videos! You didn’t go overboard at all! You have 3 young girls and a long trip in the car. You might be adding more stuff for the Christmas trip �� I know my two youngest kids get bored easily. I need to get those cups and snack cups for mine. That is genius!

  • I’m 13 and my mom for some reason gave me the water coloring thing and all I do with it is open the bottle thing and just pour it on the pages instead of actually coloring. XD

  • OMG your so organised and i love that about you, you think of every thing and every possible situation and prepare thanks so much

  • Are the kids suitcases the ones with the scooter. I saw a vid of one on Pinterest and just thought it was ADORABLE. If so how much were they??❤️❤️

  • Rather than give my boys all their surprises at once, I used to wrap up small treats/activities/etc and keep them up front with me. Every hour (or some other predetermined interval) they
    were allowed to choose and unwrap a new one (which then went into their special travel bags). They enjoyed doing this as it gave them something to look forward to during a long trip.

  • What I’d recommend if you want to wear a specific outfit on a specific day is to get packing cubes and pack by day. Roll everyone’s clothes up in the cubes (undies, socks, and sports bras as well) with the shirt. That way no one where’s their matching shirt on the wrong day and can plan according to events

  • I usually bring reusables with me like a waterbottle, my own utensils, hankerchief and an extra bag. They not only help me save money but also save the planet. Also a tube scarf is pretty versatile. I use mine as a eye mask, face mask, headband. Baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and a little bit of lemon juice can be substituted for a lot of toiletries such as dry shampoo, tooth paste, deodorant and mouthwash.

  • BTW, Dr. Broners comes in a bar, soap. I use both my lush shampoo and solid soap, when they become slim, I dry them, break into small pieces and use them on short trips, carry in a small medicine bottle

  • Man your kids are so lucky! They all look so happy, even tho they all have to share things and are siblings under the same roof. What I wouldn’t give to have my own siblings lol

  • Don’t you iron clothes prior to packing?? all the clothes are creased…..it is far better to roll NEATLY and tightly into packing cubes and/ziplock bags for the kids too…my OCD/anxiety is through the roof lol! you should cover shoes due to germs and dirt transferring to the bag/case and to the clothing items… those little cases/scooters look good but the internal capacity in them is useless,you could have fit that tiny amount into one packing case and put that into the backpacks easily. You are not using the cubes properly as you are really underfilling them and by not keeping the clothes neat/tight it defeats the object. Apple sauce would be considered a liquid… ” i will show you how i made the snacks” you putting packaged foods into bags LMAO!! on a positive note great invention….

  • At Walmart they sell a container for the tuna salad and crackers and I think they are 1 or 2 dollars. I love all your ideas. I’m trying to find a hack to keep my bread from getting smashed. Do you have any hacks?

  • Love the tips and love your videos!!! For one of my trips ( road trip for 10 days) in the car, different hotel every night, I packed each outfit for the day in a Ziploc bag ( undies, socks, shirt, top, bottom). I wrote each kid’s name and numbered the outfits day 1, day 2 etc so we could keep track. I also placed them in order obviously. It helped a lot so that in the morning I would just toss a Ziploc bag on the bed for each and no more searching through the entire bag for one item. Saved lots of time and nerves ��

  • Recap:
    1. Lay everything out (get an overview)
    Sort by:
    Frequency of use
    Item type
    Outfit packaging /activities type
    2. Compartmentalise (packing bags/cubes)
    3. Multifunctional items (pick up a buff)
    4. Merino wool (natures magic fabric)
    5. Keep everything fresh (cedarwood)
    6. Get some solid soap (multifunctional)
    7. Bring a compact bag
    8. Plan your flight (bring a sling)
    9. Strategize to save money (bring nuts)
    10. Practice your trip (try to live from your back when home)

  • I love your video go girl your awesome iam new hi and your funny girl your cool lol god loves you ������ and have good day sister.

  • One perk with Nr8. putting your pocket dump into a sling is that you don’t forget about your edc-blade… heard airport security doesn’t like them….

  • I also pack empty water bottles! I have been doing this for a while!

    I do pack myself snacks, but ALWAYS take the free snacks from airplanes if offered, weather I eat it right then or later.
    I pack nausea meds, allergy, and Tylenol, my iPad with downloaded movies, I also bring my charger box thingy so I can charge my phone everywhere, and my own headphones (some planes offer them now but not all)

    I pack extra earrings, and always pack extra underwear! I also always make sure I have athletic shoes with Me, sometimes there is activities you do on vacation that do require closed toed no sandals, shoes.

  • When traveling to a country with questionable water quality, bring a reusable water bottle that has a filter in it. I brought a LifeStraw Go Filter Bottle with 2-Stage Filtration (22 fl. oz.) with me to India and Nepal in last month. Since I had never used it before, I tested its effectiveness bit by bit. First, I used the filtered water to brush my teeth, then I started to take it with me on day trips, sipping from it periodically.

  • Beautiful ��,pretty cooler, Good display and explanation of food and drink items. I AM A BIG, BIG FANOF WHEY PROTIEN, it is SO VERSITAL. �� �� �� �� �� �� ��

  • I have used a Contigo water bottle now for 4 years. I use it every day. It has the oz marker and holds 32oz. I aim to fill it no less than twice each day and I don’t give myself a coffee or other beverage until I have drank half of it. I have since bought the travel mug for hot/cold and use it around the house. I never get my drink when it is still hot from a normal mug, and this literally keeps my drink HOT all day! I use the dishwasher for everything. My travel mug said it wasn’t dishwasher safe due to the color of the stainless, but it has held up well despite my inability to follow the instructions! I love all that you packed! You really are better to have too much than not enough, and with the weather this year and at this time of year, an 8-hour drive could be delayed. Would love to see what else you pack for long journeys. We used to bring pillows and blankets both for comfort and for safety in our cold (Canada). I don’t know what type of car you go on your trips with but it would be cool to see how you organize the car itself so it doesn’t feel like a cluttered mess while still having everything within reach. Praying you all have had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a great start to December!

  • Merino wool is really only useful when it’s cool/colder outside, which for many, is only a couple of months a year. For the rest of the year, you need a wicking-style shirt, but only if you’re NOT layering it, because wicking only works when it can reach the outside air. If you’re wearing body armor, coat, dress shirt over the top of that t-shirt, it’s going to get soaked no matter what.

  • Here’s another tip: use gallon size ziplock bags to pack your kids clothes! You can put undies, shirt, pants, socks, hair bows, etc all in one bag! Then just write their name and the date they will wear it. It makes things so much easier!

  • I would’ve never thought to use an old thermos for snacks! Thanks for the idea! You can also freeze the fruit pouches…I do it all the time!

  • This channel has totally revolutionized how I travel. I took my first urban backpack trip this year and realized that I could do even more to minimize my load. The time, money and energy I saved by going minimal was awesome! I love this channel!

  • Love this video we are going on vacation with two girls (age 3.5 and 1.5) and we are expecting our third daughter in July. Happy to find someone who has three girls need all the advice I can get lol

  • I travelled 18 months straight with 28 Liter Mission Workshop Rummy carried on planes the whole time, through summer and winter. I’ve probably used this bag for about 7 years worth of travel in total. Your bag is too big, it’ll often get rejected as carry on and you can’t put under seat in front (the best option for total access and not relying on overhead bins).

    Messenger bags are better, you have easy access without taking them off.

    You have way too many packing cubes within cubes (that’s a lot of bulk and weight) with zero compression. Use 1 or 2 compression sacks for all your clothes (apart from stuff you don’t want to crease, but including jackets and hoodies) will save a ton of space and let you carry a smaller bag.

    Shampoo bars are hard to replace on the road, just take 100ml bottle with shower gel and refill from places you stay as you go.

    A second bag, another nono, it’s yet more weight. If you get your bag down to 28 liters or below you can use that as your day pack too, it’s already small. Less duplication bro. Same for fanny pack, yet more bulk and weight.

    Buff is cool, been using merino for 20 years.

  • Your videos always make me giggle! Have fun at the beach! Do you guys bring an umbrella or do u pop a big tent/canopy? Also…recipe for the protein balls please and thank you! ��

  • Won’t make a difference because you may help produce or lower zero waste, some people are doubling or tripling their amount of waste.

  • Great ideas Kim!! That’s a great picnic bag you have there. You have some good, healthy snacks. By the way, you look great in your bathing suit. Hope you and your family have a great day at the beach! Yayyy summer!! Man, it is hot over here! Very high humidity. Wish I had A.C.
