MBA Excel Travel Checklist

Below is the checklist I use for international travel.  I leave the majority of the liquid, medicinal, and hygiene items in my suitcase, so I don’t have to repack them unless I need to replenish them.  (ie toothpaste or mouthwash)  All of these items fit into a carry-on and laptop backpack, with room to spare.  By far, bringing an additional pair of workout or dress shoes takes up the most space in your suitcase, so make sure you need it before you bring it.
