The Most Common Things People Forget to Pack for Vacation

Sometimes no matter how much you plan, you still forget essentials. When it comes to vacationing, the last thing you want to do is spend an exorbitant amount of money on something you’ll only need for a couple days.
Below is a list of the most forgotten items. They tend to be essentials and can really create a headache if you forget them.

Sunglasses Don’t forget to grab these as you head out the door. If they’re prescription, then you’re definitely in trouble.

Sunscreen No matter where you’re going, don’t forget this.! Sunburns feel terrible, and they’re so preventable.

Bandages It’s easier to prevent something from happening in the first place than deal with the rough consequences. Bringing a small first aid kit will prevent you from being dragged down by cuts, scrapes, and blisters.

Snacks It’s Always a great idea to have some snacks on hand because some things you just can’t control - like if your plane will take off on time. Healthy snacks will hold you over until you can get some real food in your system.

Chargers for phone, laptop, etc Despite being constantly attached to our technology, chargers made the list. Charge things the night before, and pack the charger as soon as you unplug it.

Extra memory card This is a huge one. Do not underestimate how many photos you will be taking. Bringing an extra one won’t cause you any harm but being short one will. Capture all your special memories.

Leave space for things you purchase on your trip This isn’t so much an item that people forget but something to be aware of. You’re bound to buy some stuff on your trip so save room within your bags to be able to pack your new purchases.
