When asked, travelers said that the planning stage of travel was the most stressful part of a vacation, especially the packing. This should be a chance to relax, unwind, and have fun, so find ways to cut down stress wherever possible. If you are a mom packing for her husband and kids, then the packing struggle is even more real. Therefore, consider embracing minimalism. Even if you have three or four children, one bag packing is possible. Cutting stress in this area allows you to spend more time planning activities, so you and the family can really enjoy your trips together.
