Meanwhile, at home, we have been packing packing packing. I have been setting aside the vacation underwear. My husband has been experimenting with the vacuum sealer; he thought it would help his long underwear take up less room in the duffle. Yeah, whatever. My theory of packing is that you use the long underwear to wrap around the oddly shaped and/or fragile things, instead of turning it into misshapen stiff blue boards.
I was indulgent though, for a time, in the interests of marital harmony. However, I was forced to confiscate the Foodsaver when he vacuum packed some clothespins.

Clothespins. Those Foodsaver bags cost about 40¢ a piece! I think the bag cost more than the contents.
This is going to be some trip.
