The checklist includes columns for you, your spouse, and up to four children. A number of commonly needed vacation items are included on the list, but it's likely that what has been provided doesn't exactly match your needs. Use the red "X" buttons to remove items that you don't plan to take and use the green "+" sign to add blank rows that you can label with any item(s) of your choice.
Once you are finished customizing the form, you can print a copy and check off each item with a pen or pencil as you pack it. If you prefer, you can mark items complete directly in the form by clicking on the box in the appropriate column.
