      It's the only way I have of making sure there's some decent underwear, hand gel, sunscreen etc.....roll-up slippers, 2 pairs of spare glasses ( which I was glad about when the arm snapped off on Ventura!)....my precious denture repair kit in case that front tooth comes off again....I also have a multitude of sewing kits, as everyone thinks "cruising" when it comes to presents, and a replenished firstaid kit!
      Any more bottom draw-ers?

        There's not much call for cruise stuff in Alloa M, so you'll need a bottom drawer to keep it in LOL

          As one who packs the day of the holiday, or the night before, I race around the house with the print out of my check list. Everything's always clean and my family joke that if they stand still long enough, they might get put in the washer. I was told years ago by a friend who had a very upmarket dress shop that the way to keep drawers and wardrobes fresh, is never put worn clothes back. A point I always follow and it works. It also means I can pack and travel at a hours notice, which I have done in the past.

              I am going to sound a bit naive but what do you do with the clothes if you don't put them back in the wardrobe? I too am a last minute packer and that is the joy of a cruise drawer! Again, I too use a list and would be a sorry sight on a cruise if I didn't! My family don't ask me if I have packed yet - they just ask if my list is done!::o

                I have an interesting wardrobe set up which includes an open hanging space for clothes 'on the go'. I would be lost without my set of lists, a basic one and then various ones depending on the climate, type of holiday. I've got it down to a fine art!

                    Do you mean that fat drunken woman in the kareoke?
                    No, we've not been on RCI- yet.
                    2006 was Princess and (whisper) Louis cruises.

                      I am also a last minute packer as the clothes don't crease if you pack them as late as poss. but I don't write lists I don't have the time or inclination. so as long as you have your tickets, passports, money, cashline and visa cards and a change of underwear you cannot go wrong :D
                      don't want to work, just want to cruise.

                          Morton, I've got to be laid back cos hubbie gets so uptight about travelling. it starts from the moment we leave the house till we arrive in the cabin, only then does he relax. I think his problem is that he doesn't........... book airport car parking for HIS car (I'm only the passenger!), book cruise, fill in online forms, pack suitcase, read tickets for flight times etc, know cabin number..........oh I could go on and on and on.:D
                          our suitcases weight is about 20-21k each, and they are hard bodied cases, so I've even got that down to a tee.
                          my holiday starts from when I leave the house so I just savour every moment and don't worry.
                          but to be fair he is getting better at least he doesn't sit right outside the departure gate as soon as the screen informs us that we can go to depature lounge. I am allowed to go to the duty free shop and he will even have a coffee in the cafe..........as long as it is the cafe beside the departure gate.
                          don't want to work, just want to cruise.

                            Ahh, you see, that's what a husband is for in this house. He does everything. Me? I just have 'The List' and make sure everything on it is packed. I agree with you the holiday starts from shutting the front door. I enjoy it all, including the travel.
