Trip Packing List {Just in Time for Holiday Travel}


With the holidays approaching, there will be many people traveling to see family and friends. I have always been a list maker and making one for a trip helps me to not forget anything. I have a note saved in my phone titled “Trips” and the second I think of something, I add it to the list (otherwise, mom brain will make me forget).


We don’t travel often but it’s helpful to have when we do. See my packing list below.

  • The number of outfits per person (includes outfits for the day you’re leaving and coming back, not including include extra outfits for your children or special occasion outfits).
  • Dental items (Toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, mouthwash, etc.)
  • Shower items (Soap, shampoo, razor, loofahs, etc.)
  • Other bathroom/toiletry/personal items (Feminine supplies, makeup, jewelry, brush, comb, hair stylers, deodorant, etc.)
  • Glasses/contacts/contact lens cleaning solution
  • Undergarments
  • Socks
  • Shoes
  • Pajamas
  • Swimwear
  • Dirty clothes bag
  • Coat
  • Cell phones and chargers
  • Other devices and charger(s)
  • Comfort items for the kids (blanket, pacifier, lovey, etc.)
  • Stroller
