consider packing in a laundry basket.
I came across this laundry basket idea out of sheer serendipity. We have been living a nomad lifestyle since we moved into 822....moving from bedroom to bedroom as we have renovated them. Hubby has a professional job, so his nice suits, starchy shirts and ties have remained intact in a closet in the upstairs bedroom, but I have kept mine in a couple of laundry baskets here and there
We have taken a couple of road trips and it's just so much easier than trying to locate the suitcase...and out of probable laziness...I find it just easier to pack the basket.
I really like this laundry basket idea--for 2 reasons.
1. Practicality, in that you can put your dirty clothes in it each day and be all ready for washing when you get home
2. It doesn't take up space in the car..you can stack other stuff right on top of it...
Another thing I like to do is pack my
1. No dirty clothes when you get home
2. New stuff when you get home that you really want besides
Now, before you go thinking I'm un-swank through and through, I do have an elusive suitcase or two and I do pack like a normal person when I fly. I have even been complimented on my outfits, hats and gloves.
But this week, when we take baby bo peep across Texas, driving from the top to the bottom and stopping at all historic points in between like the Alamo and Fossil Rim Wildlife Range...ending up at the beach...I will have all my sundry items in a large laundry basket, stashed in the back among wedding presents that will be dropped off to the newlyweds on the way back home. (32 pack...as in glasses...see how you are!)
And there is a very good chance there will be few clothes making the trip home..but more like
1. sand and seashells and I'm looking for a great piece of drift wood
2. a sword from the Alamo
and maybe a giant stuffed ostrich from Fossil Rim~
Another thing I'm doing this trip...I got a camera disc just for this occasion and intend to purchase one of those photo show frames just for Betty. It's kind of like watching tv...only YOU are the star!
