Happy August everyone! Wow, can you believe that summer is almost over? August officially marks BACK TO SCHOOL season! I know that many of you are starting or going back to college in mid-August.
The summer before college, I spent my days researching what to pack. I looked at every Pinterest packing list there was on the Internet. Looking back, some of the packing lists were very excessive. While an “ULTIMATE guide to college packing” may be helpful. It can be easy to go overboard with buying dorm things.
After two years of living in a dorm, I have a pretty good grasp on what college students NEED to pack. Instead of what they would LIKE to pack. I admit that I overpacked for my freshman year. When it came time to move out, I looked at many of the items hidden under beds and in closets asking myself “did you even use this?”
I want to share with you a packing list f items that you will actually need for college. These are the bare necessities you will need to live comfortably in your dorm room. You are more than welcome to add or take out whatever fits your lifestyle. These are the items I needed for my lifestyle in college. And I can vouch that you will not need an ironing board in your cramped 8′ x 10′ dorm room. Save yourself the space and money by reading my minimalist packing list for college!
When are you starting school? Is there anything you regret bringing in college? Or wish you brought? Let me know in the comments!
