When you pack for a trip are you packed in advanced or do you keep packing up until the last second you have to leave for the airport?

I plan ahead, but there are last minute things (curling iron, etc) that go in as I get ready

I have a packing routine. Only thing that gets packed in the morning are make up, contact case and glasses. Everything else is packed ahead of time.

I went to Europe for a week in April, I packed the night before.

As a frequent traveller, I have a packing routine that works but is last minute. If I plan for an extended trip or vacation, I inevitably overpack.

Almost everything is packed the day before. The only thing that gets packed the day of is toiletries, make up, etc. If we're going camping, the cooler food, too.

I used to pack at the last minute, which caused a lot of anxiety & an occasional forgotten important item. Now I have an all-purpose trip check list in an iPhone app, which I fine-tune well before a trip, and I start packing as early as feasible.

I do both. I mostly pack ahead, but think of something at the last minute.

I always try to pack ahead, but then my procrastination kick in. I flew yesterday, and didn't finish packing until just before the taxi picked me up.

I have all of my clothes packed by a couple days ahead of time. I have a travel bag as well. So, all of my basic amenities are all packed and ready to go as well. I do a lot of traveling and packing isn't much of a big deal for me. I do have a

tendency to overpack, though. :) I figure... I'd rather have more than to not have enough!

We leave tomorrow morning and I'm still doing laundry! I'll be 98% packed before I go to bed tonight. I'll leave meds and make up for the morning.
