Summer is basically here! The kids are out of school and your out-of-state family is expecting a visit! It’s time to start planning a family road trip in your new Toyota! Once you’ve figured out the dates and destination, start thinking about what you need to bring… overwhelmed yet? Packing for a whole family can be stressful but Toyota of Orlando sharing some tips to make it less stressful, and even how to get it all in the car!
What do you NEED to take in your new Toyota on this summer road trip?
While packing up your Orlando Toyota, think about how long you will be on the road and on vacation for. Pack the right amount of clothes for everyone in the family, and maybe an extra outfit or two just in case! Depending on how many people are in your family, your new Toyota in Orlando could already be starting to fill up just with suitcases and luggage.
- Road Trip Life Hack #1: Buy a medium-sized plastic storage bin to store shoes! Shoes can take up a lot of room in a suitcase. Instead of the kids having to bring more than one or two suitcases, have the whole family consolidate the shoes they’re bringing into one storage bin! You’ll save space and even stay more organized!
- Road Trip Life Hack #2: Keep all toiletries in one bag! Don’t waste needed space in suitcases. Consolidate them all to one bag to stay more organized! We suggest keeping the liquid toiletries in sealed plastic bags so they do not leak onto other items.
Don’t forget the most important part of a road trip: the snacks! Start gathering good road trip food a week or two before the trip, so it’s all ready to be packed in your new Toyota when the time comes! Hungry kids plus a long time in the car does NOT equal a fun time! Also be ready with drinks and bottles of water to wash down the snacks!
- Road Trip Life Hack #3: Bring a small cooler or ice chest in your Orlando Toyota! Keep drinks and waters cold in the cooler, too! When you pull over for rest stop, reach in to the cooler for a fresh sandwich and ice cold bottle of water!
