I love to travel and unlike a lot of people I enjoy packing as well. That's probably because I like challenges and making sure you got everything you need is certainly one 😛
I do make things easy though, I make lists! Oh, dahling, I love me a list, or maybe a few hehe.
I use evernote because I can access it on any and every device, pure awesomeness. I have here an example of the lists I made for our recent trip to the mountains in Georgia.
We stayed at a cabin with a fully equipped kitchen so I figured I would bring all food that I would cook that way we didnt waste time grocery shopping.
So, for that reason, I prepared 3 different lists:
* menu for the week
* foods to take
* things to take for each member of the family
I only packed enough food for the trip. For example:
* 12 tablespoons of coffee in a mason jar ( we drink 2 per day and added an extra 4 spoons just to be safe)
* Pre made all cake mixes and pancake so there was no need to take flour and other ingredients
* 2 cups of white rice in a mason jar
This method definitely worked for me but if you have other ideas, please share, don't keep those great ideas to yourself!
