Since we're kicking off travel season, I thought we'd kick off our organizational printable month with lots of fun travel printables. Today, I'm sharing a free printable Ultimate Packing Checklist. This is a very thorough list to make sure you never forget a thing when getting ready for long or short vacations.

Happy June, y'all! Today, we're kicking off a month of organizational printables with some fabulous travel printables. Although a little out of the ordinary, we're spending some time chatting this week about organizing for travel. Because organized travel is a whole lot better than unorganized travel (I've definitely experienced both!).

This checklist can go under a travel section in the Home Organizational Binder we're working to create this month. I have several other organizational printables coming out this week, including children's versions of this list, a family vacation planner, coordinating luggage tags and more! I hope you'll join us every weekday this month as we work on getting organized together (trust me, nobody needs this more than I do, y'all!). 

Below is an example of how I use this list. I laminate mine (details on an at-home way to do this without special tools, below), and use a dry erase marker to mark the list as I go. I also pack it in the bottom of my suitcase to make sure I use it on the return trip, too. It's that best way to ensure everything makes it back in my suitcase. Laminating means I can keep it in my Home Organizational Binder for years and just refer to it when I prepare for a trip.

I'll be honest, I don't pack everything on this list, myself (there was definitely a time that I did). I'm now in the habit of only doing carry-on luggage. But, I wanted to include a very detailed list that will work for those who check luggage as well. This would be a good list for a road trip, too!

There's even space to write in extra items that you like to include, too.

To make these reusable and dry-erase friendly, I laminate these at home with these
 Avery Self Adhesive Laminating Sheets. I've actually been using these Self-Adhesive Laminating Sheets since I was a preschool teacher, about seven years ago. They're awesome to do quick laminating at home, without having any kind of special machine. I get mine at Amazon here. The key is to print on regular paper, not card stock.

I also use these fun fine tip dry erase markers on all of my laminated lists, including this packing one. These are also fab for laminated calendars. Click here to find them at Amazon.

Download your favorite list below. All of the organizational posts for the month will be available in the following three patterns. You can make your entire binder mix or match. QUICK TIP: You may want to start a Pinterest board dedicated to a home binder so you can pin all of this month's posts to have them in one spot when you're ready to create that binder.
