Road Trip Essentials - Girls Weekend Must Haves

As a full-time SAHM my days are spent hanging out with our son, doing kid friendly activities, watching cartoons, reading childrens books. While this is exactly how I want to spend my days, I have to admit that sometimes, I find myself wishing for some one on one time with my girlfriends sans kids. With that in mind, a girls only weekend was planned and kicks off in approximately 17 days, not that I'm counting or anything. I am excited for 3 days of laughs, making memories and time spent with dear friends. To prepare us for our trip, I've put together a monogrammed road essentials kit that is certain to keep us satisfied.

I always make a quick Walmart run before we get out of town.  I like to stock up snacks like crackers and cookies that are easy to pack, along with a few health and wellness products. Because there are 3 of us traveling together, I gathered a small variety of items from the snack aisle: BELVITA Chocolate Sandwich Breakfast Biscuits for mornings on the go, HONEY MAID TEDDY GRAHAMS Graham Snacks, a childhood favorite, and OREO Mini Cookies for a sweet indulgence. Walmart has plenty of easy to pack snacks to choose from, like these variety packs with something for everyone.

Select Walmart locations have a great in-store coupon booklet with awesome savings on RITZ Cracker Sandwiches, BELVITA Sandwich Breakfast Biscuits, SWEDISH FISH Soft & Chewy Candy 1.9 lb. bags & TRIDENT Unwrapped Gum. Now through July 24th, you can stock up on your own road trip essentials with your chance to win weekly prizes and the grand prize through the Mondelez Road Trip #GetPackingSweepstakes.

Once I had our crackers and cookies, I headed to the candy aisle to grab one last item for our trip: my all-time first pick for car snacking, SWEDISH FISH Soft & Chewy Candy. Any time we stop for snacks, I make a beeline for SWEDISH FISH. They are hands down my favorite snack candy.

Along with these easy to pack snacks, I grabbed a handful of personal care items for each girl. Kleenex, hand sanitizer and lotion along with Advil. With these items and our snacks, I filled our monogrammed travel bags with the perfect road trip essentials. From headaches to hungry tummies to dry hands, our kits have us covered. And I plan to keep the fun going with these road trip ideas and printable games.

With Summer in full swing, families are traveling now more than ever. Where are your headed this Summer? No matter where the destination, don't leave home with your favorite snacks!

Happy traveling, friends!
