Travel Bins for Road Trips with Kids

This is our dry food bin. Basically anything that doesn’t need refrigeration. It was large…but not enough for a week at the beach.

Becuase we were using The Principal's hotel points we had to make reservations for each night. That meant we had to be at that hotel for that given night. That made for a bit of stress.
