When I’m heading out on a business trip I want to pack as light as I can, but I also don’t want to forget a thing! On a business trip there is no time to rush out and replace something, and if your hotel gift shop does have it – you can be sure it’s really going to cost you!
You only need to forget something once – which we did – before you realize how important a packing list is. Our little mishap was on a business trip to Vegas, my husband, the last minute packer, realized he forgot to pack his laptop power cord. We checked with the hotel and they didn’t have any available (I guess we weren’t the only ones to forget!), so the only solution was to head to the nearest electronic store. We definitely could have saved ourselves some time and money if we had remembered to pack the essentials.

*check ahead with your hotel to see if they provide some of these items for you
