Stress-free summer

Top home organisation tips from Benella: this month, get organised for a stress free summer... 

At home:

- Plan days out utilising the internet to find good deals and book tickets in advance

- Train tickets are often reduced in July/August – beats road congestion and car parks

- Organise childcare swap days with friends to keep children entertained and parents able to juggle work

- Keep a large bag ready filled with picnic rug/frisby/wet wipes etc to grab if weather looks good to head to beach or lake – just add picnic!

Going away:

- Plan clothes to be packed in advance and make a packing list

- Use clear zip lock bags to store toiletries in suitcase

- For long haul flights – use zip lock bag again for travel toiletries under 100ml in your hand luggage

- Check passports/visas/immunisation requirements in advance and keep everything together

- Consider using the Post Office’s money card to pre-load with currency and avoid credit card charges

- Pre-book any excursions to avoid queues

Relax and have a wonderful summer!
