Packing for a jaunt is so dreadful, it often makes me second-guess the whole darn jaunt. However, years of packing have taught me two important lessons:
First, pack ahead of time. Most people get a little anxious within 24 hours of flight day for a whole host of reasons. Hence, pack a few days before while you still have a clear head. You will be way more efficient. Just leave the bag unzipped so your hanging clothes don’t get wrinkled.
Second, have my simple, clean list printed out and ready to utilize as your check-off list. Then, you can think a little less, and not forget anything.
