Holiday travel. What a trip! After the baking, buying, and wrapping, sometimes you’ve gotta schlep across the country to be with the ones that matter most. Here are some ideas to make the journey easier, whether you’re traveling by car or plane, and here’s to making memories!

Doing this makes for a neater presentation, and by making things ahead of time, you won’t have to fight over oven space at your destination.

Travel during the holidays is already chaotic. Add the tsunami that is traveling with children, and suddenly one duffle bag turns into half a dozen suitcases, backpacks, and countless toys. Limit what your kids pack by giving each just one gallon size Ziploc® brand storage bag. Whatever non-essential items and toys fit in the bag can come along for the ride, and that’s that!

No one wants to arrive at an 85-degree vacation spot wearing layers of clothing. When going from a cold to a warm climate, pack a change of clothes in your carry on using a Ziploc® Space Bag® Travel bag, so they only take up a tiny bit of space. Simply zip up the Ziploc® Space Bag® Travel bag, seal, and roll it while pressing out the air. You will have two times the space!
