Important Things to Pack on Vacation
Whenever I go on vacation, the most important thing for me to do is figure out what I need to bring. I like to write out a list of things I’ll need, and take into account what type of activities I’m doing to make sure I’m well equipped. Yet, somehow I always feel like I missed something while packing.
Before you even start getting your luggage out to pack it, jot down a list of the places you’re going and activities you’ll be doing. You can gauge what types of outfits you’ll need for each activity and see if you can re-wear anything. From there, narrow down your list to what essential items you’ll need (clothing, accessories, shoes, cameras, hygiene products, etc). Depending on what kind of trip you’re taking, everyone’s lists will be different!

The most important things that should be packed are:
- Clothes (Don’t forget a sweater & pants for the plane ride!)
- Hygiene products (tooth brush, deodorant, face wash/face wipes, hair products)
- Charging cable for your phone
- Paperwork (passport, boarding passes, itinerary)
Some items that should also be packed, but not greatly important are:
- Sunscreen, Bug Spray, & Body Lotion (you can most likely pick this up at your destination)
- Shampoo/Conditioner (optional –airbnbs/hotels sometimes provide these)
- Towels (optional – most airbnbs/hotels include these)
Creating a list and checking everything off is great, but until you lay everything out and actually see it, is when you’ll realize if you have too much or too little. It’s very easy to overpack for a vacation (I’m guilty of that), so it really helps me to see everything in front of me at a quick glance vs. having it just written out.
