Now, on to my tips:
1. Make a list. I know it sounds silly, but for a vacation, it helps to have a list of the things you'll need. I use the reminder app on my iPhone so that I can have lots of lists at once, and check things off as I go.
2. Put on a comfy outfit and some music. I know this sounds silly, but it is so important. For me, I go back and forth between two different rooms while packing, and I'm sitting on the floor while I fold/pack, so I like to be relaxed and comfortable. While you're at it, turn on some music and turn it up real loud. I swear, this part is important.
