Moving with kids? Just like packing a Move Day bag for yourself, you’ll also need the bags for your kids and pets. The kids’ bag (or pack one separately for each child) could include: Their toiletries Medications Diapers Wipes A first-aid kit Clothing (including pajamas) Favorite toys Stuffed animals Extra bags for dirty diapers and messy clothes Formula Juice Snacks Sippy cups Bottles Extra pacifiers iPad with games Blankets Anything else you’ll need on moving day and immediately after Moving Day bag for your pets If you are moving with pets, you need to be including items for their needs in your Move Day bag as well. The bag (or box) should contain things your pet might need during the day and immediately after, including: Vaccine records I.D. tags Medications Food and water dishes A few days of food Treats Kitty litter and scoop Harness and leash Waste bags A blanket/throw/towel Toys Move Day bag tips Keep your Move Day bags out of the movers’ sight. Put your Move Day bags in your car or another designated place where you can ensure they won’t end up getting loaded for transport. Build up the Move Day bag while you pack. If you encounter an item while packing and you know it’s something that you’ll need access to right away, put it in the bag. Use a suitcase, or several, for long-distance moves. For longer moves (for instance, when you’ll be staying in hotels on the road trip), you can replace the bag with a suitcase or several, for each family member, and include more clothes, toys for the kids, etc. In other words, pack anything you and they will need on the road to stay comfortable.
