When I am packing to travel, whether it is for work or play, I am always afraid I will forget something, and I definitely do not want to waste precious vacation time looking to buy the items I left behind. For my peace of mind I have developed a personal packing list to set my mind at ease. I include items such as the clothes and shoes I want to pack, any toiletries such as contact solution and lens case. I print two copies so I have one list to pack for the trip and I stick the other copy (with a pen) in my suitcase to use to pack for the return journey. Since I have been keeping this list I worry a lot less and the day of departure is much less stressful. Hope this travel tip helps you.
