What are some things you seem to always forget when packing for a few days or more away from home?

I always seem to forget my hair straightener and my fan. I can't fall asleep at night without a box fan blowing on me. I think the cool air and the noise from it puts me to sleep and when I forget to bring it along with me on trips, I sleep terribly the entire time.. if I even sleep at all!

  • The very first thing I always intend to put in my bag, a toothbrush. I don't know how many I have bought.
    I had an aunt who lived in kentucky and she had box fans all over the place. It would kind of do this sound against the back of a wodden chair it rested on while I fell aleep. Now I fall alseep to the sound of the cieling fan though.
    But all this reminds me of the little one story home she had and the double doors that opened up to the front porch from the bedroom we slept in.

  • For some stupid reason I forget socks. I can remember EVERYTHING else but if somebody doesn't remind me to pack socks I seem to forget them.

  • I actually have the opposite problem...I pack too much ...stuff that we wouldn't possibly need.
