OCD Tendencies-My Travel Packing List

As I've been travelling more and more the past couple of years, my OCD tendencies have taken over my packing habits. Days before the actual trip, I find myself making endless mental notes about what to wear, bring, eat, and see on the trip. In order to preserve some smidgen of calmness before a trip, I find it absolutely imperative to use a packing list. I created the list using Google Docs which means it's linked to my gmail account, rendering it easy to update and easy to access. Now, I'm very much a relaxed packer as I can robotically and calmly follow and check off my list every time I travel. Okay, there are still a couple of  "I''m not boarding the flight until I can stuff two more pairs of stilettos into my bursting at the seams Gucci duffle" moments. But I'm working on packing those away.

For your reference, here's my list. Just in case you are OCD-inclined like me. If you already have a packing list, I'd love to hear what's on it!

  7. WOW! You pack heavily, ha? :)
    I usually try to take as less as possible, in my beauty bag you'll find a good face scrub, toner, moisturizer with and without sunscreen, a good makeup remover face wash, glass nail file, make up of course (only the basics) and that's it! Wish I had the energy to take more!

  8. In Paradise there are no stories, because there are no journeys. It's loss and regret and misery and yearning that drive the story forward, along its twisted road. Cheap Flights to Karachi

  10. I would never leave my house without my body and oral products such as toothbrush and mouthwash. They are always on top of my list. I can't travel without them.

  11. I always take time packing the staffs I need everytime I’d be going on a trip. I normally spend about a week preparing them, I also give enough time when it comes to preparing the things I need for my hygiene most specifically when it comes to my oral hygiene.
