Using my @Verizon @Samsung #GalaxyNote tablet to plan for upcoming travels to #Disney & #NicheParent14 #VZWBuzz

I travel quite a bit for the blog for conferences and media events. Each trip, I create a new packing list with uPacking List and as something comes to mind that I should take with me, I add it on my list. What if I was to tell you that you can pack for a conference trip that’s five days, all in a carry on? Well, you can! I’ve been named as a ‘Clown Car’ of packing when it comes to fitting everything I need in a single carry on.

Packing for a trip, doing everyday shopping, sharing your packing/shopping list via email with friends – now you can do all these things and even more with cool app uPackingList. You’ll never realize that you forgot your passport or tickets or other necessary thing at home on your way to the airport.



You can easily create lists of necessary items and control packing process. Update your packing list whenever you think you need yet another thing to take. You can create and maintain an unlimited number of lists and use a built-in items catalogue, which is simply customizable per your needs. Besides of the things a list can include the task you need to complete before leaving. This way the preparation for your travel will get simpler – just check every item you packed and no detail will be lost.

Another program that I love to use, and that’s also an app, is Microsoft’s OneNote. You can get this on iTunes or Google Play.


OneNote is free on iPhone, iPod Touch, PC, Mac, Android & many other devices.

Harness the immense potential of your thoughts and discoveries with OneNote, your very own digital notebook. With OneNote, you can capture that flash of genius, that moment of inspiration, or that list of errands that’s too important to forget. Whether you’re at home, in the office or on the go, your notes travel with you. And you can share your notes and collaborate with others, across multiple devices!

All you need is a free Microsoft Account to get started.

Recent updates include:

  • Updated navigation makes it easier to view and find your notes
  • Improved note formatting and consistency across your devices
  • Edit existing table
  • Ink annotations and rich text formatting now viewable
  • Sync your notes stored in OneDrive for Business and SharePoint with your iPhon
  • Most recently used notebook lists sync across devices

I created this on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) tablet. I am able to edit or view on my Galaxy Note 3, iPhone, PC, MacBook, iPad and pretty much anywhere from


Why do I love this program and app? Well, because I am able to add ALL my travel plans to this and my travel partner, Shannon, can log on and see what our confirmations are, what the conference schedule is, packing ideas and so much more. She can add in her own notes and it will sync across her device to mine.

My upcoming trip will be to Disney World, without the family (I know, I’m sad that they can’t come, but it’ll be a great learning experience for myself as a blogger) so I wanted to share some of my favorite travel tips & what to pack for a conference, but I’m also added in some ideas for what to pack for Disney, when you are going without the family/without kids. All the list that I see out there are travel pack lists to Disney when you are traveling WITH kids. This is for when you are traveling as an adult, no kids.

I am so excited to be taking my Verizon Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 version) tablet with me to the Niche Parent 2014 conference in two weeks. I have my uPacking list and One Note all set up on it and ready to go!
