The next post in the HOW series focuses on bringing our ultralight travel tips into daily life, specifically in the use of a packing or list-making app. Oftentimes it is our intentional lifestyle that gives us new ideas for streamlining our travels, but increasingly we have discovered a new tip or two from our travels that helps us in our daily lives. It is wonderful to have that “ah-ha” moment when a small change has huge benefits to daily life! We hope the alternate use of this app will give you the same excitement that it does for us. Now on to the app!
The trusty Packing Pro App is a staple in our travel preparation and recently, we have used it for more than just travel packing lists. Since we have it programmed (see this prior POST) to contain a general account of all the items we own, we can use it for more daily lists such as:
- diaper bag essentials
- daily outings nessesities
- gym bag
- grocery list
- pending home improvements
- party planning (especially if you are hosting at your house or a park, and thus have more stuff to manage)
- kids clothing organization to plan for the next size up
- new school year supplies
- the list could go on and on!
The gym list in particular has saved me several times from forgetting those easily forgotten items when rushing to get two kids out the door and to work (shower shoes, I am talking about you!). This app has given me some of the brain power that is lost to having two small children, and for that, I am very thankful.
Have you ever used a packing app for more than just travel planning? Do you have a favorite packing app to reccomend? Stay tuned as we evolve in our travels! Please comment with your tips and experiences so we can all learn together.
Happy (and Light) Travels!
