AUGHHHHHHHH..... What will I need for college besides the basics?
LOL, we were there last year and boy oh boy, did we pack wrong! Please know that you will NOT need every article of clothing from your closet, dresser, floor and hamper. It will take up way too much room in the car, you will have to lug it into your building (up who knows how many flights of stairs too!), you will not have room for all of it and will you wear it all right away? Chances are you will be home before you need your next season of clothing. Pack for a long vacation...
We did bring towels, but too many... You should know your child's bathing and cleaning habits by now, and they are not going to change. How long has their bath towel been hanging on the hook or laying on the floor before you have to wash it? ... or do they go through a new one every shower? Plan out the number of towels they need based on these daily habits.
Office supplies... LOL, for the year of digital COVID learning, we did not need everything we picked up. There were no in person classes because the dorm room was the new classroom. What will your school require this year? Try to think ahead about your study space maybe a little more before buying everything you think you need.
To help you out, we have put together a great check off list to help you get ready. Remember, you do NOT need everything on the list, but it will help you see what you might possibly need. Also, if you are moving in with people, you should probably contact them first so that you don't have too many of the same thing. Sharing is a wonderful and it will save everyone some money too (which is also wonderful).
