When We Needed Extra – Frugal Novice

When We Needed Extra


I have, over the years, developed a love for traveling with minimal baggage. I used to over-pack for trips, thinking of every possible thing I might need while away. Now, though, I pack the bare minimum. This is largely because I know we’ll also have luggage for four other people in our vehicle, and because I know that whatever I pack will eventually have to be unpacked upon our return home.

There’s one exception to this rule, though: supplies for cleaning up. Napkins, towels, wipes… we’re prepared, folks. And it’s not just because I was a girl scout. It’s because we learned from our experience. From our oh-so-unpleasant, toddler-puking-all-over-dad-in-the-middle-of-a-restaurant-and-then-again-in-the-car experience in the middle of a different city, right before we were supposed to get back on the road to head home from a day trip. We had to make not one but two trips to the store to get a bucket, a change of clothes for both my husband and son, paper towels, and trash bags.

There are just certain things, certain necessities, you want to make sure you have extra of – because you definitely don’t want to run out of something crucial when you really need it.

Toilet paper is definitely, definitely on my list of things I always make sure we have plenty of. And Sam’s Club makes it easy for us to stay stocked up on Scott toilet paper – we got the bonus pack which gives an extra 100 sheets per roll, for a total of 3600 extra sheets!  This Scott 1000 bonus pack is available online and in select clubs. With holiday entertaining coming up I know we’ll go through more than normal, so having extra toilet paper is great for being prepared.
