Quick Tip: Use Camera Equipment Inventory as Pack Checklist

I have an inventory of all my camera equipment in an Excel spreadsheet. I have models numbers and serial numbers, descriptions, etc. Keeps me from buying the same stuff twice (most of the time). I added two columns to the table, called "Things to Pack For Trip" and "Packed". Now when I am going on a phototrip, I print out the inventory, check the items I want to take in the "Things to Pack For Trip" column and when they are packed I check off the "Packed" column. Keeps me from having to create a checklist specific to each trip.
