I usually start the night before we leave.  With the RV, I started packing it 3 days before since that was a bigger job to set up the kitchen, bathroom, beds, etc.  We keep toiletries packed, so it's just a matter of throwing a few clothes in a bag.  I can pack for a weekend in 30 minutes for myself and my daughter.

I start making list a few months before. About a month begore i start shopping & piling up new clothes. The week before is usually when i start to actually put things in suitcases. Ive found, the earlier i oack the more i bring so i try to wait as long as possible.

I make lists a few weeks before, but don't pack until a couple days before.

I use to keep our RV stocked with all kitchen, bathroom and bedroom items.  I had dishes, linens, towels, etc. that always stayed in it.  Each season, I would buy the usuall and leave it in for the season.  This incleded spices, coffeee, creamer, shampoo, soap, toothpaste, etc.

It works pretty good.  Everyone adds what they need or what the know we are running low on.
