Pack Attack


Coming up on the holidays, a lot of us will be doing a lot of traveling, and with all the presents and pies and whatnot that need remembering, it's easy to forget to pack something essential. That is why I created my Master Packer List. Never again will I find myself stranded without a toothbrush or a phone charger. And now I share it with you, so you don't have to, either.

I have a similar list (though much smaller) and its the best thing I ever did.

A few things I noticed absent on your list were: contacts / contact solution / glasses / glasses carrying-case; mp3 charger; small notebook; pen / pencil

Thanks for the suggestions- I will add them! Ironically, my short-sightedness on this is due to my 20/20 vision.
