I have a place out of state. I evolved a list of things to take when I go there.. it works well.
I've done the same thing for tear vacations... it also works well, in addition to the above mentioned one. It helps keep me from forgetting the things I forgot before adding them to the list........ and the lists are by area of house (upstairs, downstairs), then garage, then shed.... it is a huge help. I pack faster and don't worry about forgetting things.
It's normal clothing items, vitamins, etc.... but also includes things like electric toothbrush, laptop computer (for longer duration trips)..
Lots of mundane things, like jacket, dog food and so on, but it keeps me from worrying too much about "what did I forget)...
