Travel In Style- Pack Light With Kohl’s

As most of you know, I travel often.  As airlines have gotten stingier and more impossible with baggage (they are now even making it next to impossible to take both “allowable” pieces with you as carry on), you want to make what you take with you count.  That’s why I love garments that transition easily, wash well, and don’t wrinkle.  Yes, that’s a lot to ask of an article of clothing, but not really.  I expect the same from my 6 year old  🙂

    you’re going to realize quickly that space is tight. Living in such close quarters does carry the risk of
    causing tension between family members, so don’t contribute to the problem by loading up the RV
    with unnecessary bags. Every bit of space is precious–pack only the essentials and help the rest of your
    family to do the same.
  2. Bring Lots of MusicAn RV vacation means lots of time on the road, and no road trip is complete without a soundtrack.
    Today, with the advances made in MP3 player technology, we can carry thousands of songs in the palms
    of our hands. Now that there is no need to take up space with CDs or cassettes, there’s no reason not
