Our travel editor Serena Brower was trolling around the Internet the other day and discovered a great website for anyone planning a trip. -- AP

That’s right, Anastasia. The website is Packwhiz. If you’re super-organized, you probably don’t need to bookmark this site, but really, how many of us are super-organized? I know I’m not, and I travel for a living!

Packwhiz is a free site that lets you generate packing lists based on where you plan to travel and what you need to remember to do before you leave on that trip -- like take out the trash. You can create your own list or search public lists and edit according to your own needs. Their Top 20 includes everything from a  Weekend Camping Trip to a Mediterranean Cruise. Check it out!

What a great idea, Serena! I’d definitely use Packwhiz if I were going somewhere, but these days my travel is confined to the office and supermarket. What about the rest of you? When I did travel, I always arrived to find that I’d forgotten to pack something. That ever happen to you?
