If you’re setting off to college or sending one of your children off to college, you have a lot of packing in your future. There are tons of things to remember to bring with you to college, but of course, if you forget some things, they can always be easily replaced. With that being said, there are a few essentials that you can’t do without.
1. Rain boots, a rain coat and an umbrella
Being on college campuses means walking a lot, and this is great for your health most of the time, but when it’s raining, it can be terrible for your health. Make sure you have the essential rain equipment.
2. A mini fridge
You won’t have a kitchen in your dorm normally, but you’ll want to have cool drinks on hand and maybe a few other snacks. In this case, a mini fridge will come in extremely handy, and you can even set things on top of it.
3. A book bag or back pack
Bringing your books and notebooks to and from class is essential. Make sure to purchase a comfortable and durable book bag or back pack for your commutes.
4. Essential under the bed and closet storage
Storage is often limited in dorms, so you’ll need to make the most of the space that you have. In order to do this, make sure you have some storage unites for the inside of your closet as well as under your bed.
5. A laundry bag
Laundry is usually found in dorms, but of course you’ll need to get it from your dorm room to the laundry room. That’s where a heavy duty laundry bag comes in handy.
6. A shower caddy
The shower situations at some colleges can be tricky. A lot of colleges have shared showers, so to take your shower things to and from the bathrooms, you’ll need a handy caddy.
7. Shower flip flops
Again, the shower situation is different at each college, but for many people, shared showers are the norm. And in this case, you’ll want to keep your feet safe from athletes foot with a pair of simple shower flip flops.
