How many times have you packed for a vacation at the last minute and forgotten something? If I'm being honest, it’s happened to me more times than I'd like to admit. It can even happen if you're one of those people who actually starts packing well in advance (a characteristic I'm highly envious of, by the way). With so much to remember, it's just too easy to miss an item or two.
One way to avoid leaving an essential behind is to make a list every time you pack, but who has time for that before each trip? Not this editor. If I had to do that, I'd be making upwards of 20 lists per year. That’s why today I'm bringing you a complete packing list that can be used for any and every vacation or getaway. From clothing and accessories to toiletries, tech necessities, miscellaneous items, and even an optional section, see everything you need below and then continue on to shop the items. Don't forget to save, pin, or screenshot the list so that you have it on hand for future travels.
