College Packing Checklist
A College Packing Checklist Makes The Transition Easier
Packing for college requires some advance preparation and a college packing checklist. A few years ago, when it came time to move my daughter into her freshmen college dorm, I was ill prepared. Once we arrived at the school, we made so many trips to the store to pick up items that we had forgotten or simply had not even thought of. It was all so exhausting. Plus most stores nearby the college were pretty well picked over.
I wished I had been better prepared for the transition to college. Given this frustrating experience, as soon as I got back home, I developed this college packing checklist for future years. I then used this checklist for the next three years. It has been a real life saver.
Keep in mind that every college and university is different and the amenities they provide are different. Also, this college packing list is geared more toward females than males (you will get it when you read the list). This college packing list is a good starting point and no doubt you will be adding your own unique items. I also found that by the time you get to the fourth year, your child is much for involved in the process and knows exactly how to go about packing and getting ready for the new school year.
Trust me on this and start gathering all your items early and have them packed well before your departure. This is an exciting time for both parents and college freshmen. Getting all your packing organized and completed in advance is a huge stress reliever. And don’t forget to pack their very own cosmetic bag filled with some fun things from home to keep them from getting too homesick
