  1. Our kids are definitely grown now: 42,47, and 49! Grandkids are 13 to 23- so no little ones anymore. These ideas are fantastic and I love to read these ideas. One idea I used 40 years ago was how to limit, in a loving way, what they all wanted to take on a road trip, without overfilling the van. I ended up buying each one a moderate sized plastic file container with a handle. I wrote on each one, (name)’ TRIP TRASH and they were allowed to put in each one what they wanted to take. They were able to choose their toys or games to fill the container but they weren’t able to exceed its size. Worked great for us and at the end of each day they had to repack each one and not leave stuff in the van. They knew that one kid wasn’t going to be able to take more than the other one. One of our kids still has his and uses it for his daughter. Peyton is so proud to be able to use her dad’s “suitcase.”

  2. I loved, loved so many of those car hacks! I will definitely be using a lot of those! My only suggestion would be to add a container of baby powder too. When at the beach, just pour it over the sand that is on your feet and ankles. Then just wipe off and the sand is gone!
