As hopefully you know by now, we travel frequently – even if just for a long (3-4 day) weekend. I thought I’d give you a sample of what our packing list looks like.

socks (1 pair per day)
jeans (1 pair)
undershirts (1 per day)
button-up or polo shirts (1 per day)

dress shoes (ditto)
running clothes (1 set)
toiletries: toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, shaver, razor
and he’s set!

personal pharmaceutical company (small pill bottle containing Excedrin, Tylenol, aspirin, ibuprofen, and allergy pills)
1 dress (that I won’t wear the entire time)
1 skirt (ditto)
camera (prolly doesn’t leave bag if we’re going somewhere we’ve been a lot)
iPod (won’t get used unless I run…and we all know how likely THAT is)
However, with all of these items…I will still forget to pack a sweater, even if it’s May and we’re going to San Francisco. Please note that the red thing I’m wearing is a sweatshirt I got that says “San Francisco” on it. And yes, it was just a bit brisk.
