Packing for vacation: just pack or make a list and check it twice?
For me, I always have to have a list, then pack only what I really need. Gives me an excuse to do some extra shopping when I get there.
Definitely compile a checklist. Vacations are meant to be fun things - the last thing you want to do is spoil it before you go by forgetting something important. I am a bit neurotic about these things so I'll always tick things off on a checklist as I pack. Vacation preparation matters so much, I've even written a trio of pages on the subject, including one specifically about checklists (see below). Hope it helps someone.

It helps me to spread everything out on the bed, or floor and go through the checklist AS I'm packing.
I love to pack for a vacation, so I don't need a list. Whatever is missing can be purchased at my travel destination. Since I don't want to spend any extra money on missing items, I seldom leave anything out. For me, packing without a list adds to the excitement of traveling.
