Packing for a vacation

I love making lists, and I love making plans for vacation, and collecting things bit by bit for the vacation. But this means I usually end up with boxes and bags of things in the kitchen for several weeks before the vacation.

edit:I forgot to mention that I am talking about a driving vacation to the beach, so I'll pack some foods and linens, etc.


How do you handle vacation packing?

I think about how many days I will be gone, and have an outfit for each day, and double the undies.  Try to limit on shoes because they are so bulky, and my PJ's.  I may not be understanding the question right because I am not sure why you woul have boxes for a vacation in the kitchen?  I make a list for packing, and kind of run down it.  Sometimes I add more as I go.

 I do that too but I only pack ahead what I can keep out of the way.  Normally in my bedroom.

 When we go camping I have to make lists for several rooms and a big one is the kitchen.

I pack the day before. Usually with no list. I rarely forget anything- but I do frequently "over prepare" in terms of wardrobe- what if it's hot- what if it's cold-

 I make a list and then if i have to pick things up here and there then they go directly into the suitcase and then I straighten it all out on the final pack.

The garage is near the kitchen, so I pack things in there (not clothes) so it is one trip. I am talking about a driving vacation, I should have mentioned.

A friend of mine doesn't make lists. I suggested that she should make a master list and have it on her computer to print out when she goes on vacations, but she doesn't want to.
