Often when packing for a trip, I start in a very good manner and following the best techiniques available.
Once I am kind of done with the basics, I start noticing little things that are missing: my agenda, the battery charger, the set of keys, that extra pair of socks that may be useful at the end, etc.
When it is time to unpack or use any of the items, the problem starts:
- Did I put the agenda next to the shoes or, instead, in the little pocket of the bag?
- Weren't the socks just underneath the umbrella?
This leads to unpacking most of the suitcase until I find the item and all the beautiful order is lost.
So I wonder: how do you people keep track of where are the little items in the suitcase so that you can directly access them instead of just trying to guess where did you place them in the last moment? Maybe tracking it with a paper?
