Organized packing list?

Previously i had my packing lists on Numbers but was thinking about creating a packing list in Obsidian.

Its a bit more a list, categorized by day trip, over night, camping, abroad.
However im sure im not the only one here with packing list and quite sure somebody had got better ideas. So it would be great to hear how you have done it!

Thanks :slight_smile:

I use checklists for everything, it’s so useful.

The way I do it is I have a folder in my vault where I put all my checklist templates. Then I have a Templater script which I assign to a hotkey and to a button on the mobile toolbar.


When I run the script it presents me with a list of the checklist templates, and I pick one and it makes a copy of it in the correct destination folder.

Then I just start checking things off. When it’s time to go through that same checklist again, I run the script, get a new un-filled-out copy, and start checking things off.

const checklistTemplateFolder = 'Utility/Checklist templates'
const checklistDestination = 'Checklists'
const dv = app.plugins.plugins.dataview.api
const templates =  dv.pages(`"${checklistTemplateFolder}"`)
const template = await tp.system.suggester(, templates)
if (template === null) {
    return ''
await tp.file.create_new(tp.file.find_tfile(template.file.path), + ' ' + moment().format('YYYY-MM-DD'), true, app.vault.getAbstractFileByPath(checklistDestination))
