The packing spreadsheet

Postby LMQueen on Thu Apr 17, 2008 4:15 pm

So I am very much a list person in life in general, but I've always made lists before I pack to make sure that I don't forget critical items.

A few years ago I took it a step further and created a spreadsheet and discovered it worked perfectly. I list the days/nights down the left side to create rows and I have columns labeled top/bottom/shoes/handbag/jacket (when necessary) going across.

I can work on it at work or at home any number of days before I actually have to pack. I can put multiple outfits on certain days just in case I'm not sure what I want to wear, but this way I don't forget anything that is crucial for an outfit.

When it comes time to pack, I just print it out and I don't have to think, I just check off that I have grabbed everything on the sheet. I even include all of my tolietries on the bottom of the page and other misc. items like camera/ipod/phone chargers.

It never fails me.

Do you use Google spreadsheets so you can just access it anywhere?

Packing is miserable. And I never travel.

My method is to think my way through, day by day, of what I might need. Then I start from the feet up. Shoes, check. Socks, check, pants, check oops might wear shorts Check, Underwear. Got it. Etc, etc...

In the end It'll be a 4 day trip and I'm taking like 6 pairs of shoes, about 15 shirts and 5 baseball caps.

It's terrible.

I Love your idea.
