Simplified Travel Checklist & Packing Tips



Being a mum of 2, I have a very limited memory capacity, & what I worry most during a relaxing vacation would be realizing that I, forget to bring this or that upon reaching the destination, especially those important must bring stuffs like charger or universal adapter, or for certain people, some baby stuffs that are irreplaceable, like the pacifier or pillow. Seriously I would be very angry at myself.

Fortunately, apart from those that I have briefly mentioned above, most other stuffs can be bought even if you forget to pack them along.

There are many travel checklists available on the internet, but some could be too complicated (in a good way, they're so detailed), most stuffs may be slightly irrelevant & it made the list really long, so I've came out with a simplified travel checklist after studied through tons of them. These are the essential stuffs that I would bring for most (if not all) vacations (well you know, except for a very long vacation away from home, or if the destination is like the freezing death North Pole or something? Then I would have to pack differently, lol).



I wasn't very good at packing stuffs, really, I literally just chucked all of them into the bag & that was it, until I came across these travel bag organizer on Groupon, oh wow, these are my savior!!! They made packing so much easier, now I could pack very neatly (almost) & they help save up lots of space in my luggage too.



This is our bag for a 5D4N vacation locally for a family of 4, net weight of 19kg. I have friends who wondered how did I do it? My hubby always think I over-pack stuffs, hey, who doesn't like to travel light? Who likes to wait at the conveyor belt looking at 1 piece of luggage after another & yours will always, & I mean always, come out last! 

Anyway, see how neatly have I packed the stuffs & there are still plenty of space left! For MORE stuffs! It means I can have more shopping space! Hehe.



1 more great stuff that I have to share as well. 


This is a roll up cosmetic case, I place the toiletteries stuffs in there, along with chargers, digital camera, luggage scale & stuffs, these make all my small toiletteries stuffs organized & I'm loving it.

Look how compact it is after rolling up.


I hate packing (& unpacking too!), I always pack at the very last minute, having said that, I've tried only started packing my stuffs few hours before we left to the airport. :p 



It's harder to pack if you have little helpers like mine that think they're really helping you out. Well, by throwing out all the stuffs that I've packed into the bag, & replaced them with their favorite toys.


Happy packing everyone! I'm off to clean the mess!
