Packing always requires a list. It’s certainly true if you’re going away for a few days but in my opinion just as true for shorter excursions; from a day at work to popping out for a packet of tea.

If you’re anything like me packing for the simplest excursion can take ages. You fight the urge to pack for every eventuality. You inevitability leave something really important behind.

One list is for day trips:

The other is for longer trips:

A little bit of forward-thinking that makes life so much easier. Do you have a packing list for day trips? What would you add to the list?
