Lists are a Travelers Friend




If you hate stressing about forgetting something when you travel then create master packing lists to reuse each time you travel.  I have created lists on 3x5 cards that walk me though all the things I might need to pack or remember to get done before we leave.  I don’t necessarily need everything on my lists for every trip, but it helps jog my memory to be sure I don’t forget things.  Here’s the what’s on my cards:
