No matter how many times you check, it always seems like something gets forgotten. I'm coming up on some vacation time and no matter how hard I try to plan ahead, I always end up packing last minute. I always make a travel list and write down what I need to get and bring, but it never seems to help.

I always tend to pack heavy and I've tried to condense what I need to bring. There are some basics like your license and debit, credit card, toiletries and clothes, but what else?

What's something you always forget when you travel?

I can't figure out why I never seem to remember this, but I always forget to pack my toothbrush. I remember it usually when I'm already on the plane and end up having to buy an overpriced one in the airport when I land, go figure.

A basic travel list:

Here's some other basics I've come up with that everyone should have for a summer vacation:

  • Depending on how many days you're going, bring multiple outfits you can wear
  • Bathing suit
  • Cover-ups
  • Sandals
  • Suntan lotion
  • Towel
  • Headphones (usually mine always break on vacation)
  • Hair products
  • Sneakers

Is there anything else you can think of that's essential for when you travel? Share your list and let us know what you think on the station app. Have fun with your travels this summer.
