I’m a list maker. I make grocery store lists, to-do lists, and before any trip I make detailed packing lists. It stems from being a mom, a Brownie leader, and cheer coach. If I didn’t want to have a little girl without her pillow or retainer, I’d better provide a check-off list. It has become a bit of an obsession. The main difference now is that I am only responsible for packing things for my husband, the dogs, and myself. Believe me, it’s a lot less stressful than a list for twenty girls!
We have had a discussion on the BlogPaws Newbies Group about what we should definitely remember to bring. I appreciate everyone’s input and you’ll see several of the items below. I hope that this list will help you remember everything to bring.
BlogPaws 2015 Conference Packing List
When you are deciding which clothes to pack, remember these things:
You’ll want to be comfortable.
You’ll be meeting brand representatives that you may want to work with in the future.
There will be a lot of different pets to pet which means bending, stooping, and hair.
Some of the meeting rooms are chilly, so throwing a light sweater in your bag is a good idea if you are cold natured.
Do not stress out about dressing up for the Red Carpet Nose-to-Nose Award Ceremony. It is a fun night to dress and walk the Red Carpet, but there are people in jeans or khakis with tee shirts.
You will want to leave room in your luggage to bring home your samples and swag. A table will be set-up to leave any items that you don't need. Those items will be donated to a local shelter.
This list is a general guide and will be helpful if you print it and check the items as you pack them. It keeps you from wondering, “Did I pack…”
