Going Out Checklists

Google Doc    |    Dropbox Paper    |   .PDF

We created some super helpful checklists of things we need to remember to pack whenever we go out. We have lists for when we go to doctor’s appointments, a hospital overnight stay, preschool, vacation, the granparent’s house and even the beach. We literally use this every day! We recommend copying and pasting these into to your notes application if you have an iPhone. You can create a checklist that you can share with your family and collaborate on the simple task of leaving the house. 🤷‍♀️

We've found it super helpful to set proper expectations and avoid potentially awkward conversations with anyone who stops by : ) Click on the link above to download a printable .pdf.
