Traveling with my family is a priority! I work really hard to be able to travel and vacation with five kids. Time spent together away from the hum drum of daily life and responsibilities always brings us closer. The memories shared are priceless. Along the way I have found some great Family Travel Mom-Hacks.
Take a winter holiday.
Our most recent family getaway was to South Padre Island, Texas. As a homeschool family we plan for a long break over the holidays with time for a getaway, because by December we are so exhausted from school and activities. It’s my favorite time to getaway. It’s not just kids that need a break from school!
Look for deals!
I found a fantastic deal on a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom condo right on the beach! Seriously, you guys, we spent $50 a night on a condo for eight. (More about that coming soon.)
The only thing that concerns me about traveling in the winter with kids is the germs. We have spent many, MANY trips with sick kids. I want to have the best time, and sickness always puts a damper on the fun.
Pack Nice ‘n CLEAN Antibacterial Hand Wipes.
In preparation for our South Padre getaway, I stocked up on Nice’N CLEAN Antibacterial Hand Wipes. I left a pack on every surface in the condo. They are so handy! Guess what? No one got sick! Nice ‘n CLEAN Wipes are now #1 among my family travel mom-hacks.
I saved money by purchasing quick foods to eat in the condo instead of going out to eat. If you don’t mind spending your time cooking, then you can save even more! I, however; purchased some of the kids favorite meals and snacks that we don’t usually have at home, and we all lived it up. The only rule was that before eating, they had to use a Nice ‘n CLEAN Antibacterial Hand Wipe. The wet wipes also came in very handy to clean off surfaces.
I felt so much better watching my kids eating finger foods knowing their hands were clean and virtually free of germs!
Family Travel Mom-Hacks: Why Wipes?
Wipes are better than gels! Did you know 80% of common infections are spread by hands? Nice ‘n CLEAN Antibacterial Hand Wipes kill 99.99% of germs. They also remove dirt, food, and bacteria from hands and surfaces – something gels don’t do! That is why they are amazing Family Travel Mom-Hacks!
Head into your local Walmart to purchase Nice ‘n CLEAN Antibacterial Hand Wipes 5 X 20ct. Family Value Pack today! Whether you are planning your next getaway, or just want to keep them for your car, purse, backpacks, kitchen table, etc, Nice ‘n CLEAN wipes are great to have around!

Sanitizing hand wipes are a must not only when we travel but every time we go out of the house. My family and I always take a pack with us in our bags and we also have one in the car. It is always best to practice hygiene. Keeps illnesses at bay!
Yes! Last year we all got the flu, and I’m doing everything in my power not to get it again this year.

My family always kidded me growing up about my cleanliness and hygene but as an adult, I carry these. My husband appreciates the excessive planning and being prepared so it’s even more rewarding these days. I love these things!
I was just the opposite. I rarely washed my hands when I was young! I somehow stayed healthy. My kids though…watching them go through terrible sicknesses has opened my eyes. I want to avoid all the nasty germs as much as possible.
I thought once my kids were out of the baby and toddler phase that the messes would not happen. Now that my kids are 10, 9 and 7 I know that is not the case, they are still so messy! So being prepared when traveling is a must.

That is a definitely MUST when traveling. We always come home from vacation with some sort of bug someone has picked up!

We all need a break especially in the cold New England winter here. I love hacks that will help us save money so we don’t break the bank when travelling. Hand wipes come in ‘handy’ when you need them most!
