    Started packing some of my bags for the trip next week:thumbsup: got laundry done and everything hanging in the closet ready to go. Packed the shoes and part of the carry on bag. Have my envelopes for each day labeled and filled with $$$$...so excited!

    So how soon do you pack for your trip?

    I started packing a few days ago (toiletries and miscellaneous things) and yesterday I started getting clothes into the bag. I have all my groupons, show confirmations, myvegas printouts and other miscellaneous paperwork (as well as my daily envelopes that I will fill once I am in vegas) in a folder that will be packed into a backpack that will be my carryon. I will finish up the packing Monday night. Tuesday morning out bright and early for the airport :banana:

    My cat gets anxious when she knows I'm going to be away and it makes me feel so guilty about leaving. So I wait until the very last minute to pack. It's the last thing I do before heading to the airport. :eek:

    I usually end up packing the night before but usually it takes me into the wee hours. I find trying to narrow down which shoes to take is the hardest part, I try to keep it down to about 5 pairs.... I love shoes.... :D

    I have almost 2 weeks to go...but clothes are hung together in the closet already, underwear in my suitcase, bathroom bags done. I have a detailed check list I keep on the computer and print out a month before my trip. I have 2 of everything I could possibly need for the bathroom bag so that can be packed and ready to go a month ahead of time. Meds are already bagged....suitcase and carryon are out with some things tossed in as I get them ready. The last minute items are the hardest...making sure I don't forget the dh's electric razor or any of the chargers we use on a daily basis...other than that things get checked off as they go in the bag.

    Started this morning, half done on the checked in bag and the other half will be done once the Monaco F1 GP is over. Off to the airport to drop the bags off in just under 2 hours to save both queueing and time tomorrow morning. Once back I'll start thinking about throwing the carry-on together but knowing me that will probably actually get done last thing tonight.

    I feel packing early only increases the already agonizing anticipation that seems to drag on forever. Therefore I pack the night before and yup, I usually forget something!

    I always make a list of all the clothes and other items a couple weeks in advance. I try to pack as light as possible, this trip will be 8 days and I am packing only a backpack, and I never wear the same shirt twice. All in all I am packed up atleast one day in advance

    I pack the night before. Takes me a while to over pack so much :)
    I get things other than clothes ready a few days before hand.

    I always wait until the very last minute. It helps with trying to keep our cats out of our suitcases. Have a great time, win lots, perhaps we will run into each other. :)
