Complete College Packing List

The thought of only having one more time to pack everything up and head to college is so weird to me. I am without a doubt questioning where my time has gone and have officially felt like a parent telling other people "it goes by so fast." In some ways college makes you feel like a nomad since you are constantly packing up to move about. Over the years I've started to better understand the importance of not taking everything I own along with me each time I re-pack to head back to school. Less is most certainly more in this case since it doesn't take long for a small space to feel cluttered. 

With that in mind I am once again sharing my complete college packing list. If you've been following the blog for a while there is a good chance you may have seen this before but I like to think it is worth re-sharing. In fact, I use this list when I am packing up each year just to make sure I haven't forgotten anything to important. If you're traveling far from home this list will also help you to see what stuff you may need to pack and what stuff you can purchase upon arrival in your college town. 

While all of this stuff isn't absolutely crucial when it comes to your survival in college for the most part this is what I bring and enjoy having on hand at a moments notice. I have purposely excluded clothing & food from this list because you'll want to pack the clothes you like that will work for the season and when it comes to food it makes more sense to just get it when you get there. Another note about packing clothing is that it saves a lot of space to rotate your clothes out based on the season. What I mean by that is go ahead and bring any summer and early fall pieces you can wear now to have for a couple of months but come fall break (or parents weekend) pack that up and put it in your closet at home to trade it for your fall and early winter pieces. This saves so much room and will save you some time since you won't be looking through all the clothes you own to find the one summer top that is your favorite.

While I attempted to make this list as complete as possible if you see something I've missed definitely let me know! I highly suggest that if you have a roommate that you communicate with them in order to split up some of the higher price tag pieces that you may want in your room. By doing this hopefully y'all won't show up with a ton of overlapping things and you may even be able to coordinate some room decor if that is something that sounds like fun to you! One last tip would be to look on your schools website to see what is provided in the room. For instance, Furman provided us with a micro fridge so I didn't have that on my list because I knew there would be one waiting for me when I moved in. If your school doesn't provide a fridge and microwave of some sort I would consider purchasing one as they get more use than I would have ever imagined!
