There are two types of people - the ones that pack days or weeks before leaving, and the others that pack at the very last minute.
But no matter which type of person you are, it's likely that you will, without a doubt, still forget something. There are some pretty common items that people tend to forget when packing and often regret forgetting them.
Forgetting to pack things that you know are important can make the start of your vacation or travel plans anything but seamless. Can you imagine sitting on the plane without headphones to drown out the sound of crying or forgetting your pillow to make napping with your bad neck possible?
These are just some of the things that make traveling more enjoyable. And we often don't realize that we left items that you can't get just anywhere until it's too late, like your eco-friendly floss or the only lotion that you can use for your sensitive skin. Forgetting either of these things will leave you looking ashy, scaly, and with stuff in your teeth.
There are things that you simply cannot do without when traveling, and forgetting them will mean one of two things - either you'll have to do without them, or you're forced to pay big money to replace them.
We all have weird items that cannot be found in just any store, and if you are traveling to another country, there may not even be a replacement for what you're missing. This is why making sure that you have everything that you need before you leave is so important.
Your vacation is supposed to be stress-free, so let's make sure you have the following items in your travel bag before you leave so you can enjoy this well-planned vacation.
Here are the most forgotten items,
For some reason, it's easy to forget about our chargers, but not our phones. And traveling without a phone charger can make everything more difficult, considering everything we need is accessible through our phones. Sure, you can purchase a new charger on the go, but you better be willing to spend big bucks for a new one.
You may want to consider leaving one in your suitcase so that you never forget it again.
It might not seem like that big of a deal when it comes to forgetting toothpaste. After all, you can literally pick it up anywhere. But if you're like many people, you have a particular brand that helps with your sensitive teeth or use toothpaste tablets, and you can only purchase them online. Would you be willing to use something different during your vacation? Probably not, but it will undoubtedly be inconvenient and disappointing.
Shampoo & Conditioner
Most hotels and even some air bnbs supply small shampoo and conditioner containers, but this can be a real inconvenience if you use special shampoo. Your dry scalp or perfectly dyed hair cannot handle a week of regular shampoo.
Hair Brushes and Combs
Keeping up with your basic grooming is important, but for some reason, your hairbrush and comb are the easiest things to forget. You set it down on the bathroom counter after using it that morning. This is another thing that you can keep a spare hairbrush in your luggage.
We often don't think about it until the rain begins to fall. You come out of the airport to a downpour, and you're totally not prepared. Rainy days shouldn't stop you from enjoying your vacation or going exploring. And it doesn't have to deal with the many choices of travel-sized compact umbrellas that can easily fit in your carry-on.
Reusable Water Bottle
We love them, but for some reason, we forget to grab our yeti cup or insulated reusable bottle before heading out on vacation or for our business trips. Stowing away an empty water bottle is a great way to stay hydrated or to enjoy a hot coffee while on the go.
There's always going to be something that we forget when traveling. After all, it's murphy's law! But you can eliminate many of these items by keeping a set in your suitcase. It's important that you don't forget the things that will make your traveling uncomfortable or impossible to get.
