Packing overwhelms me. Entirely.
We are headed out car camping later this month. And I knew that I had to pull together some first aid supplies for the trip. I googled and googled "camp first aid kit," "ultimate camping first aid kit," "everything you need for safe camping..." and was totally overwhelmed by all of the options. We live two plus hours from the nearest big box store, where they sell small versions of every ointment and supply that you could dream of. Plus I have a closet full of never-been-used first aid supplies. I didn't really think it made sense to buy everything over again, just because it wasn't the right size or exactly what REI suggests that I bring. Naturally, I coped by hitting the craft supplies.
I made a huge canvas pouch with boxed corners. The finished size is 13" tall x 10" wide x 4" deep. I slapped a freezer paper red cross symbol on it and then ironed on a little quote that makes me laugh. Then I filled it with anything and everything that we had that seemed like it might be helpful - since we'll be car camping, there's no real need for a compact kit in this case.
I have been told that I make an art out of fretting about things and packing a first aid kit is enough to send me right over the edge - enough to keep from ever heading out into the woods, actually. What if I don't pack the right thing???!!! This little quote on the back of the supply kit is a reminder to me, from me to get a grip:)
