2. Fill laundry baskets with spare outfits, boots, hats, and other items for a road trip that you might need to grab easily.
Depending on where you’re driving, you might want to stop spontaneously at a hiking trail, an Instagram-famous site, or a playground with your kids. You’ll need to have the proper gear with you, and you definitely won’t want to search through tightly packed suitcases to find what you need. That’s where the laundry baskets come in: You can load ’em up with stuff that you’ll be able to grab at a moment’s notice, like a camera, sneakers, and gym shorts.
