Trying to remember everything you have to do and pack before leaving for a vacation can be stressful. Grab a pack of index cards and make a packing list for different types of vacations and trips you might take. This could include cruises, day-trips to the beach or a cottage, bike trips, and longer vacations. You can also make a card for things you need to do before you leave, such as water the plants, go to the bank, or turn down the air conditioning. Knowing that you have everything taken care of before your trip puts your mind at ease!
