The details are going to vary for each person.

If I'm checking a bag I make sure my carryon contains the things that will keep my trip from being spoiled if the checked bag should go missing:

* my everyday needs (toothbrush, saline and case for contact lenses, spare contacts, sunscreen/moisturizer, comb/brush),

* a couple changes of clothes,

* any electronics I'm bringing (camera, netbook, chargers for these, electric adaptors if needed),

* if I were to bring any other valuables, those would be in the carryon (but I don't)

* things I might want in transit (ibuprofen, antacid, reading material) or immediately on arrival (address and directions for where I'm staying) or emergency (copy of passport & travel insurance)

If you have any prescription items, put those in the carryon and also bring a copy of your prescription. Any of the rest of the items - toiletries and clothes especially - if necessary you could usually buy at your destination if you forgot to bring them, or if they were in lost checked bag.

So far i've never lost a checked bag, but I did have a time when it was delayed over night and I didn't get it until the next afternoon.

Make a list of what you need/want every day. If you had to go a few days with only what is in your carryon what would you put in there?

Just enough to get you through one day.......just in case your luggage is lost.

Swimwear, clothes for a day, meds, toothpaste-brush, De-O, comb, shaving stuff. I think you get the idea. Only take jewelery that you will wear.
