Make a list…and check it twice
If you’re finding the idea of packing for a particular trip stressful, or if you’re overwhelmed by the whole process, then this next hack can help you make the chore more manageable. Most flight attendants agree that you need to have a packing list, especially if you’re going to be doing lots of different things on your trip.
These days you can download ready-made packing lists online, or you can make your own in good, old-fashioned paper and pen. Think about the whole thing logically, either breaking things down by day, event, or item. If you’re using packing cubes you could even stick the contents on each cube.
