There’s always a lot of packing to do before you set off on that long-awaited RV trip, and much of it is community property. Most of your gear can be packed in boxes, bags, and totes for ready access by the whole family. But when it comes to each person’s personal toiletries, or electronics for that matter, packing separately takes a little more time but pays off in the end.
Here are three easy ways to keep track of everyone’s toiletries in the RV.
1/ Separate Toiletries With Personal Backpacks
Lots of RVers choose individual backpacks for each of the kids. It’s a good way of keeping all their personal belongings in one place, and most of them are very comfortable with carrying their own backpack.
You can fill backpacks with each child’s towel, shampoo, hand soap, and favorite electronics, too. Backpacks are handy due to the zippered compartments most of them come with, and you can also use zipper lock plastic bags for small items.
2/ Use Small Plastic Totes for Easy Stacking
Small plastic totes are nice because they stack well against the wall or can tuck away in the trunk of the car. Kids can open their tote and grab what they need. As long as they return things when they’ve finished with them, you’ll have a winning strategy. You might try color coding the totes and items inside for easy sorting, if things start to become jumbled.
3/ Get Quick Access With Clear Organizers
Some RV families like to use hanging shoe organizers for small items, the ones with clear plastic pockets. You can fill them with all kinds of objects that get used during an RV trip. Each child can have their own row or column to keep things easy.
Most of all, find ways to pack like things together. Make it easy for kids to grab one bag when they’re headed to the shower or when they plan to play a game. You’ll all enjoy the trip more when you aren’t spending your time on the hunt for that frizz-taming conditioner your teenager must have and can’t find.
