A list template for all those annoying little things, you inevitable forget to pack.
I’m already late for work and trying to remember everything I need to get in my suitcase before I leave. Just trying to decide on the right clothes to match my unpredictable future mood is difficult enough. (How the heck am I supposed to know if I’ll want to wear a maxi skirt or jeans on a Saturday afternoon? It’s impossible to know in advance.)
The Friday morning before a weekend trip is always a disaster. As a result, I usually forget something vital like a strapless bra or a hair brush and then feel a little off for the rest of the weekend.
I’ve found keeping a last minute packing check list permanently saved on my phone (I do it in the Reminders app) and going through it before I’m about to leave keeps me organized and calm as I’m heading out the door.
Last Minute Packing List
- Bras – 1 reg, 1 strapless
- Sleep mask
- Magnesium supplement
- Toiletries – I now keep a travel bag with mini versions of my cleanser, face oil, and toner ready to go
- Hair brush
- Curling wand
- Phone charger
- Take out garbage
- Check appliances are shut off
- Water plants
- Shut windows
- Turn on the dishwasher
