I have found a spreadsheet that can help. It’s a downloadable spreadsheet from Google Documents.
Go to google.com Click on the little tab that says “more”. Choose “documents”. Login to your google account. What?? You don’t have one yet? Well, it’s free and what are you waiting for. Click “Create an Account Now”
Once you’ve logged into google, click on “more” then “documents”. Search Packlist. A copy of Packlist and Trip Preparation will come up.
It’s great for packing for a short trip or a big move and is customizable.
There are three sections one for physically packing items, one to do list for before you leave and one list for caretakers left behind. I really like that from this main spreadsheet I can print off a list for the petsitter, babysitter or housesitter. One step down! The less steps I do, the less stress for me.
Here are some other items I have found helpful during my many moves:
