The Handy Dandy Vandy Packing Packet Printable

posted in: Travel 15 comments

Long, name, amaaaazing results!  Presenting the Handy Dandy Vandy Packing List. I have a huge cheese ball bone.  Pardon the bad jokes and rhyming and alliteration around here.  I love printables and lists make me very happy.  When we travel, planning is key.  It feels so good to pack the right stuff and not forget the things you need.  Over packing or under packing can be a real bummer.  And hey ladies, studies have shown we have a tendency to over pack by 50%!  If you’re traveling by air or by car, too much stuff can be a hassle.  It can cost you money or make your car stuffed to the gills.

Check it out and head to the bottom of this post to download your awesome packing list.  Say hello to your new title, Packing Ninja!

You can also check out my tips on How to Pack a Suitcase.

I would love it if you would like my Facebook Page and share this article on your social media network of choice if you download it.  Pinning is winning with this sort of thing.  Or just to say hi over there or anywhere and show me some love. :)

I’m not a big fan of requiring anything for you to download the packing list, but I do approve of asking nicely so I am asking.  It would mean a lot to me.  This is a new website for me after 5 years on my old site, and it takes social sharing to build a good reputation online.  Let me know if you want to link to this on your website.  I am totally happy for you to share this post with a link back to this site for the download.  You may not provide this as a download on your site.  Thank you.

Let me know if I missed anything.  I am happy to make updates.

    Oh, this is so handy! (Ha! See what I did there?) I have half a list from one of our last trips and I keep thinking I need to round it out. Now I don’t have to!

    So handy and totally easier than what I usually do which is write an illegible list that ends up being no help!

    As someone who hates packing with the fire of a thousand suns, I NEED a list like this. Also? I consistently forget things. Important things. Like makeup.

    I’m awful. I literally just make piles and hope for the best. When we moved here I about lost my mind so I bet your list would have come in very helpful :)

      I love my checklists. Otherwise I forget something and then I am all annoyed. I suppose when you move everything chances are most things end up with you!

    I don’t like lists. I swear I don’t even know why they let me have my own blog . LOL
    I will share it and pin it for you and the other people who truly love lists, because I know that the bloggers I hang out with are going to love this and use it. Me? I start packing about 2 weeks before a trip, just put things on the bed, in the suitcase etc and as I remember them they go in. I’ve never had an “HOLY SH*** I forgot” moment yet.

    I am actually a little envious of people that are list makers, spreadsheet lovers. I just don’t have the gene for it.
    (Maybe that’s a blog post all of its own….?)

    We are getting ready to head to Hawaii next week and while I’m in denial about the logistics (just me and the three kids), the packing is another obstacle! I love that you have a printable outfit planner and packing list- with three of us to pack for to last throughout our vacation, the more efficient we can travel, the better. Off to print!

    This is great. I’m a whiz at packing for myself because of all the travel I used to do for work. However, I tend to over pack for the kids. By like a lot.
