Have you ever forgotten something important when packing for a trip?

I am on vacation right now, and I think I actually did pretty well packing as lightly as possible and still having what I need for comfort.


Have you had any packing problems?

I always make a list a few weeks ahead of time, and walk through the house to make sure. It has worked so far!

I've never forgot something. One time I forgot to grab my shaver so I threw it in my purse thinking I'd throw it in the suitcase once we got on the road. I forgot about it and when I put my hand in to grab my wallet the next day I took the top of my finger off. I'm now very careful when I pack to follow my list and do it in an organized manner. It's been a smooth 2 years since I've changed my style!

The first time my hubby and I went camping we forgot pillows. Another time we forgot the pump for our air mattress. Now I make a check list and everything that we need goes on it and gets check off as we pack it.

One time I left all of my hanging clothes behind. I was lucky that there was a mall not too far from where we were staying and I was able to assemble a couple outfits for not too much money.

I went home for a visit one year (from NY to Indiana) and packed dresses and some skirts, but forgot to pack a single pair of jeans. Thankfully my mom and I are the same size. 

I've also gone on trips and forgotten pajamas, but that isn't nearly as big of a deal. I usually have something in my suitcase I can sleep in.
