Every time I go somewhere, I forget something. I could be going to the store, or spending the night somewhere and I will never have everything I need. What’s worse than that is when I actually remember everything and, because I’m so used to forgetting something, I spend my time trying to figure out what I left behind.
I’ve been told that making a list is helpful, but I even question the list itself. If I can’t remember to bring everything, then I’m definitely not going to be able to write everything down that I need. Making lists does help, but I kind of do it backwards.
When I plan on going anywhere, I start to keep everything that I will need in the same area about a week in advance and then I take inventory of everything I have in my travel pile. I’m not the most organized person, but this system seems to work for me.
