Dear Anne, I’m gearing up for a beach getaway with my whole brood as soon as school gets out for summer. Any sage advice for lightening up the packing? I’m crossing my fingers for smooth sailing and as little baggage as possible. —Pamela S.

Dear Pamela, Sigh. First comes love, then the babies, and finally the supermom-slash-Sherpa lifestyle of lugging the gang’s gear around to destination: everywhere. The day you’re able to successfully pare down your family’s packing list to carry-on size is no small victory. If there’s a single, hard-and-fast tip for traveling light, it’s putting together multipurpose pieces for the plane ride. Everything here does double—if not triple—duty. Bingo.
