If You Really Want The Kid To Feel At Home, Don’t Forget To Pack Some Extra Bubble Wrap

Listen, everyone. We need to have a talk.

I’m not here to tell you what you can and can’t do with your money. Most of you have probably earned it in a reasonably ethical manner and should therefore have the right to spend it as you so choose. But just so you know, if you spend any of it on the $250 an hour fee it takes to have a professional organizer pack your kids’ summer camp bags full of soap and candles, you’re an awful person and a worse parent.

No, I’m not going to sit here and argue this with you. You are wrong, and that’s final. Stop ruining the world by way of helpless loin lemon infestation.

It takes three to four hours to pack for clients who demand that she fit all of the comforts of home in the luggage, including delicate touches like French-milled soaps and scented candles.

At $250 an hour, the cost for a well-packed kid can run $1,000.

“I talked three people off the camp ledge,” Reich told The Post. “For a lot of mothers, particularly when their child is going away for the first time, it’s very stressful. Clients will say, ‘I need to touch and feel the sheets for softness.’ ”

Some of her clients have requested she recreate their child’s bedroom so they can feel completely at ease in their air-conditioned bunks.

“It’s really about bringing the feel of home to camp,” Brandoff told The Post.

“A lot of the parents that I work with want to duplicate the bedding that they have at home. They’re sending plastic boxes and shelving to give their kids more space.”
