When it comes to packing for other people, I do a pretty good job: I remember socks, pj's, all the really important stuff. However, when it comes to packing for myself, I seem to forget everything I'm going to need to get through a normal day. In fact, I usually end up making an emergency run to the nearest drugstore for stuff I've left at home.
That's where the Universal Packing List comes in. This is a fantastic site that helps you customize your packing list to the nth degree: by weather, destination, trip dates, what you want to see, your luggage size, and more. If you're a forgetful packer like me, this site is a lifesaver!
