I'm tired of lugging that thing in and out of the trunk and not all of DD's stuff fits in it anyway. She still loves her Kiss and Cry and always brings it to the boards so that will have to stay. I'm thinking about a transport skate bag, but does it hold lots of other junk?
Here's our typical list of paraphernalia in the Zuca (we are a family of over-packers):
skates, guards, soakers, towel for wiping down skates
large ziplock of assorted foot junk (foot powder, blister pads, moleskin, gel sleeve, Band-Aids, foam pads, and scissors)
hairbrush, scrunchies, pony holders
3-4 pairs of gloves, headbands, extra skating jacket, skating socks
We bring tissues, water bottle, ipod, music CD's, ibuprofen, and freestyle punch card in the kiss and cry
A third bag holds her skating binder, gym shoes and socks, ankle weights, a jumprope and a yoga mat.
I feel like we bring an extraordinary amount of stuff with us but we use it all at one point or another. I could probably take the less often used stuff and put it in it's own bag that gets left in the car - like the extras and foot stuff. Also, I love lots of pockets for organizing everything into it's place, but DD doesn't follow that same method and just sort of shoves everything everywhere, leading to lots of searching. I feel like she would almost be better off with one large space to dump everything in with the exception of her skates. Maybe a skate bag, a duffle bag, and her kiss and cry?
Anyway, does anybody have a great method of getting your stuff to and from the rink?
