OCD Tendencies-My Travel Packing List

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

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!
