My Travel Packing Checklist

personal travel Mar 31, 2023

I spent last week in the Dominican Republic with my family.


While I was packing all the warm weather clothing even though it was snowing buckets at our house, I thought to myself "man, this piece of paper makes my life so much easier." I was referring to the packing checklist I was holding and walking around the house marking things off as I placed them in my bag.


I created my own packing checklist for our travels but never meant for it to ever be seen by anyone else other than me.


I wasn't happy with all the packing checklists I saw out there and due to my efficiency and organization brain (and my enneagram 1 "we can do this so much better and easier" thoughts), I created my own to make packing easier for myself and our family.


I had some friends and family ask for mine and decided what the heck, let's just make it so anyone who wants it can use it too!


So, if you're looking for a way to make packing for your trips easier, you can snag mine and make it your own!


It's completely customizable to your needs and printable too.

Also, since we're on the topic of travel, we recently got rid of all our old checked and carry-on luggage and purchased THESE checked bags from Quince.


I was looking at luggage from Away, Beis, and Monos and these from Quince were the winner for me and have been awesome.


If you haven't noticed, I'm a very particular person haha and I do my research on products. I will spend hourssss researching options and reading reviews.


You may not have heard of this brand (yet) but we've become pretty obsessed in our house. Basically, they provide luxury items (think Mongolian Cashmere, Italian Leather, Turkish Cotton, etc) to everyone at low prices by removing the middle-man. They explain more about how they do this on their website and I'm probably butchering it but you get the idea.


They have a great affiliate program too so if you are looking at new bags or anything else they offer, you can use my link HERE to get $20 off.


I hope this was helpful and makes your travels easier too!
