"Spring Break, here we come!!!!"It’s probably a good thing we only have one child. Because I just can’t imagine packing for anymore than him and myself— and I undoubtedly always forget something. Like his underwear in Hawaii. Or enough long-sleeved shirts in Canada. My husband insists on packing for himself, always has what he needs, and it all shockingly fits in a small carry-on which he stores neatly in the overhead bin. Me? I need stuff. Lots of stuff. Which is why I survive off lists.

Here’s my personal list of things to pack to customize and make your own. Every  time you take a trip, tweak it for next time so you don’t forget “Fluffy” the bunny or his favorite DVD.
