We just moved into our forever home last week and it was quite a production. The last thing I did before we said goodbye to our old home was pack up a few overnight bags for the family. We were planning to spend one night in a hotel (which turned into two!) but this bag (or bags) also comes in handy the first couple of days at a new house. I included all the staples you want to have when traveling:
- travel size shampoo & conditioner
- bar soap or body wash
- hair brush/comb
- hair products if you use them
- make up if you use it
- two to three changes of clothes
- chargers (cell phone and anything else you rely on)
- prescriptions and vitamins
- pain reliever & allergy medicine just in case, especially if you have little ones
Those are the things I would normally include in a go bag. One thing I added specifically to plan ahead for the first few days in the new house was a healthy and easy breakfast solution. I absolutely love the new Nature Valley Bistro Cups. They really are the perfect breakfast.
Because we are creatures of comfort, we packed the things we couldn’t risk losing into our car and let the movers worry about the rest. So, in addition to our go bags, our computers, our daughter’s favorite toys, husband’s gaming miniatures, and my sewing machines, we also packed our brewing machine. (Can NOT live without that!) My daughter was so excited that first morning to push the button. We asked, “Do you want to #BrewYourBreakfast? and she jumped up and down with glee!
We asked if she wanted Apple Cinnamon Almond or Brown Sugar Pecan and she couldn’t decide. We brewed one of each and she ended up mixing them together! 😀 Now through October 9 you can get $3 off to try for yourself!

One last thing, I’m hosting a giveaway for $10 (via PayPal) so you can try Nature Valley Bistro Cups!
