Yes, yes, this is another one of my own style dilemmas...but I figure someone else must have the same issues I do, so...
Must pack. Someday. Leaving in 2 days for the beach. Won't have time to pack until tomorrow night, probably. And have to do it with baby and baby gear in tow. So compact packing is key. The good thing? It's the beach. Beach requires little real clothing. It's the Outer Banks, so there's absolutely no need to dress for anything. If I bother to throw in a nice skirt, it'll be a Big Deal. And there's a washer and dryer, so if I underpack, no problem, just toss it in, and reuse.
How to pack quickly and not forget anything? Make a list, probably...so here goes...
Very Important Must Not Forget
Bikini (wanted to get out and buy another one, but don't think I can even fit in a quick trip to Target before we leave)
Wear around the house yoga pants and tank
Razor & new blade
Could Really Live Without It If I Had To, So Maybe Shouldn't Bother
Shorts (the single pair I own that are really too big for me)
Cargo pants (also really too big, but they're cool and have loooooots of pockets)
Beach towels (the benefits of traveling with mommy, as she brings these things)
The bigger list(s) will be for The Bean & her paraphanalia. But we'll deal.
