Don’t Stress! Make a Travel Checklist

One way to alleviate some of that travel-related stress is to be prepared by using a travel checklist or two. Doing so will help to ensure you pack what you need (without forgetting anything) and are prepared before you leave on your trip. 

How to Start a Travel Checklist: Determine What You Need for Your Trip

1. Your Destination

2. Travel Companions

If you’re traveling solo, travel-sized items are probably all you need. But if the whole family is coming along, you’ll need to add toiletries for each person on your travel checklist.

3. How Long You’ll Be Travelling

The longer your trip, the more items you’ll need. Remember, the more days you’re away from home, the more variance there could be in the weather.
