Since this week has been my college's move-in week, I produced a list of things that I'm very glad I decided to bring!

1. An Ottoman

These are a godsend. They are amazing for extra storage, and if you get it in the right size it can fit right under your bed.

2. Scissors

How many times have I needed scissors during the move-in process? At least 3 dozen times. Not only does it come in handy to cut things open but when you need to decorate or cut wire its a blessing.

3. Extra blankets
