There are five people in my family, and when we go places, so do our things! I’m talking clothes, toiletries, toys, “what-if” essentials like BandAids and medications, shoes that require their own space…

We take a lot of stuff, okay?

While I’m the packing pro, I can make anything fit inside a bag or suitcase, I am not the girl for the trunk job. My husband is the only one who can visualize the potential of the empty trunk, putting every square inch to work. The man has a gift, I tell ya. His trunk-packing skills are the stuff of legends, of lore! But lucky for you, he’s sharing his tips for properly packing a trunk. You’re welcome.
