Here is my Ultimate Packing List. I keep this on our computer & whenever we are packing for a trip I print it out for each person to tick off as they go. Sometimes the contents alter slightly, depending on where we are going, but usually by only adding or taking off a few items.

The Ο is for ticking as you go & the  represents non-essentials that get left at home if space/weight is limited.

I find this really easy & time saving, hope you find it super helpful.

Feel free to print….
