    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.

    Definately make a list.
    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.
