I know there are several threads about what People Have Packed…What They Didn’t Need…but they go away so fast. By the time I go to start writing them down they are gone. So I thought I would start a thread for us Fabulous MaySurgers. Even if you cut and copy someone’s ideas that you see. Anything is helpful. I just know that I am swamped at work and by the time I go back to find it it’s gone.
So what’s in your suitcase?
