What to put in his suitcase? That’s the question everyone asks themselves before leaving on a trip. Often, we forget the essential when we are in a hurry to leave. Then, there is the stress too. To make sure you don’t forget anything, check out these tips before you leave.
Write down everything that’s important
With the many details you have to remember before departure, the ideal is to make a checklist of things to do and things to bring. For this purpose, take a notebook to write down everything that is important. Just when you remember that something needs to be brought before you leave, the best thing to do is to write it down. That way, when you need to remember it, your notes will be available in an instant. All you need to do is keep your writing in a specific place. Choose a place that you can easily remember. This is important so that you don’t waste valuable time trying to find your notes.
Record every idea
A journey begins with good luggage preparation. This step may seem easy, but it can become a real headache. The success of your adventure will depend on the things you bring with you. Another way to make sure you don’t forget anything is to pack everything you can think of. You might be driving, eating, or doing something else when a good organizational idea comes to mind, or you might remember something important that you really need to bring. In these cases, instead of getting your notebook, record these ideas so you don’t forget them. You’ll always need a small tape recorder or cell phone handy to be ready to record the things you think will be useful on your trip.
Do a final check
This step is really necessary before going on a trip. Don’t forget to make sure that you have followed all the necessary procedures for a trip abroad: formalities, insurance, etc. Then, before closing your bag, review your notebook and do a little reminder. Check that everything is there: identity document, means of payment, electronic devices, clothes, shoes, toilet bag, first aid kit. Everything is present in the luggage and you are about to leave? The last thing to do is to check your home, especially the bedrooms (are the shutters closed properly?), the kitchen (have you unplugged everything?) and the garage. If you have a pet, to leave on a trip with peace of mind, it is best to put it in good hands. Entrust it to a trusted relative or neighbour. Now you’re ready for that dream trip!
