Tip of the week: A great group packing tool

As an alternative to clunky spreadsheets or endless email chains, WhoBrings is a brilliantly simple way to figure out who’s bringing what.

Just type the name of your packing list into this free website, add some items, then share the link with the rest of the group. Anyone who has the link can then claim responsibility for an item or add new items to the list. You can also specify a number of units for any item—12 beach towels, for instance, or three packs of beer—and people can choose how many they’ll bring.

The great thing about WhoBrings is that it doesn’t require any registration, so anyone can use it with practically no friction. I’m looking forward to using it for future trips and sending far fewer emails in the process. Check it out →
