Here are the 20 things I wish I would have brought to college BEFORE I moved in!
My roommate and I always needed scissors when we moved in so we had to go to our neighbors when we first moved in.
2. Nail Clippers
Even to go around my hall NO ONE HAD THEM. So my roommate and I went and bought our own.
Everyone has pain some days, we just forgot to bring some...
I learned my first 8 weeks that color coating is the way to go when you are writing notes, I had to go out to buy some multicolored pens because I was tired of looking at the same black, blue, and red ink.
5. Extension cords
We were always just out of reach of the power outlet
6. Power strip
There was never enough outlets in the room to fit our needs
7. Electric kettle
*Easiest way to heat up water for Ramen*
8. Britta Picture
You DO NOT want the dorm tap water
You always need extra lighting at your desk
10. LIGHT BULBS
My roommate and I forgot to buy light bulbs for our lamps...
11. A FAN
Your dorm will be VERY HOT AND YOU WILL FEEL LIKE YOU ARE DYING, so please bring like 3 fans.
12. A HEATER
I am always cold so I keep heater under my desk for the "cold" fall days
You will want to "fix" things that require tape to fix
14. A Stapler
There are no staplers on campus, you have to search high and low to find one. So, now I keep one in my bookbag and one at my desk.
When you want to do dishes, it is kind of strange to ask the "floor mom" for dish soap
Please bring them, the floors are gross..
17. Command Strips
TO DECORATE OBVIOUSLY
18. Extra Phone Charger
You constantly lose it.
19. A comfortable chair
I constantly drag my comfy chair around the hall to sit in other peoples room.
20. Tool Kit
To take apart the things that I don't want together (safety bar on the bed)......
