Do you use a packing list or checklist when you go on vacation or a business trip? Or, are you like me and just go through everything in your head? After a while, you learn that your memory isn't good enough, so you start making packing lists, however incomplete they may be. The especially smart people (like my wife) have learned to save a copy of their packing list to make life a little easier the next time. Now you can benefit from that wisdom. The vacation packing list, travel packing list, and college packing list below were created by group effort from the experience of a number of different people and families. I hope you will find these useful.
