Don't leave your toothbrush when travelling- A guide to packing just what you need

Just recently I had to travel to the country to attend my Grandfather’s funeral. Usually I prefer to pack at least a week before the day because I tend to forget stuff. This time I was feeling prepared. I didn’t pack in a rush and it was in advance so I was good. About an hour into the journey, I’m like “ Oh Snap! I left my toothbrush.”  

Has this happened to you before? I feel like this happens all the time. If it's not the toothbrush, it's the hair brush, it's lotion or something important. I hate being unprepared, I do! Especially when I try to prepare in advance but still leave behind something as simple as a toothbrush. So I was inspired to write this post.
