Kelsey’s tips for staying organized on the road
- Be intentional about your possessions. Pare down what you bring and what you purchase when you’re traveling.
- Have a place for everything and put things back where they go. Put things in compartments and use packing cubes.
What really should go into trail mix
Sam – “the nuttier the better” – cashews, almonds, (Kelsey vetoed pecans in trail mix), plus some raisins or dried cranberries.
Kelsey – almonds, sunflower seeds, raisins, dried cranberries, cashews, and pretzels
The real debate… chocolate or no chocolate? Sam and Kelsey both agree that chocolate can be messy in trail mix. The exception is M&M’s. Bonus points if it’s dark chocolate.
