Some Things to Pack For Your Vacation
I love to prepare for vacation - to the point of making a to-do list and checking each thing off as it's done. Even if you don't go that far, you should know what you should take along and make sure your travel bags have everything you need when your car rolls out of your driveway.
Here are some things to remember when packing for your vacation....
Gallon Zip-Loc bags are great for temporarily storing wet things such as bathing suits (but don't leave them in the bags for long or they'll get sour).
A plastic garbage bag folds up to almost nothing, and will hold your dirty laundry.
A Swiss Army knife can come in really handy.
A canvas tote bag will hold the tee-shirts and knick-knacks you buy.
Don't forget the tweezers and some safety pins.
Hopefully you won't need your insurance policies, but if you do, it's nice if they are in your bags.
Don't forget your passport if you are going into Canada or Mexico!
Go through your laptop case and make sure you have everything you may need, including necessary passwords.
If you are traveling along, download a couple of books from the library to your Ipod. Books can make time fly when you're driving!
Consider investing in a device that will allow you to use your phone hands-free in the car. Many states now forbid the use of cell phones in moving autos, but hands-free is usually allowed.
Think about putting a can of pepper spray in your console. Just in case.
Hopefully your vacation will go smoothly and you'll have a wonderful time!
