So you're going on a trip...

I hate living far from my family, but I'm lucky to live close enough for weekend trips.  Between my fiance's family and my own, traveling for work and seeing friends, we are gone quite a bit!

This may sound silly but I get a little nervous leaving our house and I like to just make sure everything is taken care of before we head out.  I made up this little list to help give me peace of mind while we're away.
As you can see, I have an upstairs page and downstairs page.  This way, I can take one and my fiance can take the other and we are done in half the time!  It takes maybe five minutes (if that!) to quickly go through the list before we are ready to hit the road, jack. 
I laminated my lists and keep them on a clip board in our living room.  We use a dry erase marker (which wipes clean off of laminated pages) to check things off and make any notes.  If you don't have a laminatorsheet protectors work just as well :) 
Knowing that everything is taken care of at home helps me relax and enjoy my trip :) Do you have any tips for traveling?  I'd love to hear 'em!

Thanks for visiting,
