The College Packing List (of Everything You Probably Forgot)

Thinking back three years ago, I remember the excitement I felt about moving off to school and living in the dorm. Dorm life isn’t all that great, but I’d be living on my own for the first time, and my future roommate and I were talking every day about things we needed for the dorm, things we already had, etc.
The College Packing List (of Everything You Probably Forgot)
It’s funny now, when I thought of this post, I asked her “what did we forget for our dorm?” Well, I’m one of those people who can usually think of everything that I need, and my roommate from freshman year is the same way.
Thankfully, I had some awesome blogger friends who helped me think of some things that you probably won’t think of bringing until you get to your dorm (or even your apartment).
22 Things You May Not Remember

  1. water filter
  2. pepper spray
  3. shower shoes
  4. command hooks
  5. bags for shopping
  6. bug spray
  7. air freshners
  8. trash bags
  9. extra batteries
  10. Flashlight
  11. clorox wipes
  12. mini vaccuum
  13. extension cords
  14. extra phone charager
  15. first aid kit
  16. 3m strips
  17. ethernet cord
  18. step stool
  19. dryer sheets
  20. ear plugs
  21. Ziplock bags
  22. A swifter
  23. paper towels
I know, some of these won’t apply to everyone, but it’s always the little things I forget to grab before I move. If you’re still panicking about what else to bring to your dorm, here’s a great article from The Blogging Brew full of the basics and the expanded things to bring.
I’d also like to thank these ladies for suggesting some ideas.
