Before you head over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house for Thanksgiving this year, check out all of our family travel sanity-saving tips. After years of packing up the kids and traveling by car to Iowa and by plane to Texas, I’ve put together some great tips and ideas on how to make your trip way less stressful and actually have more fun. Lessons learned – don’t bring sticky foods in the car, buy hand sanitizer in bulk, don’t put the dessert you worked so hard on in the back of the car with the dog. I’m just saying.
Here are some of my top blog posts to help make your Thanksgiving travel one less thing to worry about this crazy Holiday Season. (Psst! Don’t forget to pack your fat pants. I know I always need them after gorging on Thanksgiving dinner.)
