Travel Tip Tuesday: Hit Up The Dollar Store Before Heading To The Airport


Have you ever traveled with a little one and forgot to bring a bag full-0-tricks? Nightmare…

I always make an effort to visit my local dollar store and stock up on little goodies I know will keep my kids occupied for the long haul. New books to read, coloring activities, paper dolls – you name it – they have it and it’s a dollar! And though I won’t admit it to most – well except for the thousands of you that read this blog – I even take a walk through the candy section and pick up a few boxes for the trip. Getting caught at the terminal trying to grab snacks and being ROBBED at the cashier angers me to no end.

What do you bring on board a flight with the kids?
