A Clean Manor provides fresh and simple ideas for a clean and organized home.
May 31, 2010

Our entire family is going on vacation together soon and its time to think about packing for vacation. There are times when this becomes a bit overwhelming to us! We have 6 adults, 1 toddler, 1 baby, and a whole bunch of stuff!! We loved being organized. Therefore, we took a moment to think about the best way to organize ourselves to prepare for vacation, which brings us to our LIST. Lists aren't always the most easy to make (more on that at a later date), so we began by creating categories for items we would need.  Here is what we came up with:

 First we started with the essentials: Clothing and toiletries

 Next we made a list for kids: Toddler/Baby items

 Then we moved on to technology. Yes, it is now an official item on the list. We have computers, cell phones, portable DVD players, GPS units, and chargers for each one! You just can't leave it off the list.

 There is always a need for this category just IN CASE: Other/Miscellaneous

Once we had our categories we just began filling them in like crazy!  We are also planning on cooking our meals while we are there. Therefore we planned our menu ahead of time.  Then decided what food we'll be taking with us and what we'll need to buy when we arrive at our destination.

 Below are 2 Google documents of our lists as well as blank lists for you to create your own!  Happy packing!
