Labor Day Weekend is upon us! Get ready for a plethora of discussion around leaf-changing, apple-picking, and PUMPKIN EVERYTHING! Labor Day is the unofficial end of the summer, and we’re sure that you’re currently in the throws of Back-To-School and Fall Mania, so we’ve put together a few tips for how to make the most of your Labor Day Weekend!
Last Minute Trip
Given the number of travel sites on the Internet today, it’s gotten to be pretty easy to find a cheap, easy getaway package, especially if you’re not picky about where you go! Sometimes it’s fun to just set a 4-hour flight time max and click GO to find a great and random trip. Or if you’re feeling really adventurous, draw a circle around your home-town on your map and do some quick googling to find a random, family-friendly destination close enough to drive without it feeling like a “road trip.” Pro-Tip: Our Roasted Broad Bean Crisps make an amazing on-the-go healthy snack!
It’s the end of the summer, and we’re assuming you had at least one or two major vacations over the past few months, so sometimes you’re just over planes, trains and automobiles. That doesn’t mean you can’t still “get away!” Spending a night or two at your local hotel can feel exotic, especially if you pamper yourself with a massage after laying at the pool all day! Since you’re saving on the plane ticket, we recommend upgrading to a suite and treating you and your significant other to a fancy dinner! And of course, you can have our amazing ice cream waiting as an in-room dessert.
Well, if you’re like me you love cool-weather clothes over warm-weather clothes ANYway, so this is the perfect weekend for a transition! We absolutely love these Compactor Storage Bags from The Container Store for packing away a lot of clothes into a small (and cute) space. As you’re pulling out your Fall clothes, here’s a pro-tip for you: Hang your clothes up with the hanger backwards on the rod. When you wear something, put it back the 2nd time the right way. After the season, you’ll see all the things you DIDN’T wear, making it easier to purge!
