Visual List for Gear

If you routinely need to assemble a number of small objects, here is a way to make sure you don't forget anything.

Construction is obvious: I took a white plastic shopping bag from a clothing store and cut out a rectangle. I then drew outlines of all the list items using a permanent marker.

If the outline is covered, then you have the object, otherwise the empty outline shows you what you still need to find.

You could use paper instead of plastic, but using flexible plastic makes the list much more durable, and you can wad it up to store it away.

The pictured list is for the gear I take with my GoPro camera, but you could use it for many things:

  • Hiking ten essentials
  • Bug out supplies
  • Toiletries
  • Repair kit
  • Photography gear
  • Spare parts



    • Trash to Treasure
