So, did you get the memo? We're going to try something different with Works-For-Me Wednesday this week. Instead of sharing a new WFMW idea, go back in your archives and find your WFMW that you consider your best one. Then re-publish it! It's sort of a "Greatest Hits" edition. Here's mine; it's actually the first WFMW I ever did, back on April 19, 2006--
Here's a little idea that has made packing easier when traveling with kids. I buy those two-gallon Ziploc bags (they are MASSIVE) and label one for each day we are traveling. Inside each bag is every kid's clothing for THAT DAY, all the way down to underwear and socks. So, no more rummaging around in a crammed suitcase or having boy #1 use up all of boy #2's underwear. I simply pull out that day's bag, dump it on the bed, and they can dress themselves. An added bonus is that it keeps the clean clothes away from the dirty ones. Here's a photo of the idea in action, from our recent Disney trip:
Such a simple little thing, really, but it made the biggest difference in our trip!
Share your WFMW "classic" below. If you've already prepared a new one, and you're itchin' to share it, go ahead. (WFMW guidelines can be found here; please read through them if you have any questions.)
