Don’t Forget These Oft-Forgotten Essentials When You Pack

You’re all ready for that vacation or business trip and have checked your list four times, but as you leave your home you still get that nagging feeling that you forgot something, right? Us folks at Smart Park know the feeling all too well – even though we are in the travel business!

It seems only normal to worry if you forgot your underwear, but it’s usually those little annoying things we forget to throw in our bag that make us imitate Homer Simpson with a “D’oh!”

Let’s look at some essentials you should pack in that first aid or toiletry kit that you may not have thunk of, but will be a lifesaver if needed.

  • Medicated Cream
  • Tylenol or Advil
  • Band-Aids
  • Allergy Meds
  • Scissors or tweezers
  • Contraception
  • Spare Glasses
  • A few days worth of extra meds and vitamins in case your trip gets unexpectedly delayed
  • Dramamine (for those that get queasy)
  • Backup charger
  • And don’t forget some extra clean underwear – your mom would be proud!

You may also want to jot down a list of prescriptions before you go just in case you get separated from them and need to refill.
