#1 Cooler 1: Use one cooler for drinks only (use can use ice cubes here if you like), pack water, juice, ice tea, energy and coffee drinks (for those moments when you need the caffeine to stay awake for driving).
#2 Cooler 2: Have one cooler for sandwiches, individually wrapped cheese sticks, carrot sticks, already sliced fruits like apples and pineapple, peeled oranges or clementines, washed grapes that you can portion into snack-sized baggies, anything that should be kept cold(use the re-freezable gel ice packs here so they don’t melt all over your food like ice cubes).
#3 Hard-sided Bag or Box or Plastic Container: Pack room temperature foods without them getting crushed. Use a small cardboard box that you can toss along the way as they empty out.
Use shoe boxes for each person so that they can pack individual snacks that they each like. Younger kids can decorate their own shoe box or wrap it with your favorite comics strips.
