PackWhiz – Generate Packing Lists For Trips

My wife and I love traveling and have been on a lot of trips in the US. We have found the trips we enjoyed the most were the ones we prepared well for and remembered to pack all the things we needed.

So, we usually make a checklist of items to take either in a list app in iPhone or in a plain excel spreadsheet.

We have an upcoming trip to California in a few weeks with 2 other families. And I have found an excellent tool to create and share a packing list with our friends.
