15 Things You Now Officially Know You Totally Did Not Need For Fall Semester

Whether it's the first time or the fourth time you're moving into college for the fall semester, you want to cover all of your bases and pack up your entire room so that you're prepared for any possible situation. Now that it's mid- October I bet you're realizing that there are plenty of things that didn't need to make the trip.

1. 16 pairs of jeans

Let's face it, you wear leggings 5/7 days of the week anyway. 4 pairs would have more than sufficed.

2. All of your makeup

80% of it has gone untouched, right? Next time, just pack your everyday makeup and leave the fancy stuff for weddings.

3. Your entire shoe collection

Close up on big pile of colorful woman shoes.

How many times have you worn your nicest pairs of heels on campus so far? None. What about the 7 pairs of sneakers you had to pack?

4. A Keurig and 100 K- Cups

You just bought coffee everyday, didn't you? It's just dusty and taking up space on your desk.

5. 18 blankets

It's not even really cold out yet. 1 or maybe 2 blankets is plenty.

6. 10 Pillows

Do you even make your bed ever? They're probably just on the floor.

7. Bed risers

Were they really necessary?

8. 11 sweatshirts

You know you only wear your favorite two.

9. High school apparel

You just wear your college sweatshirts anyway.

10. Tons of dresses

It got to fall temperature pretty quickly and you didn't want to wear a dress anyway.

11. Excessive decorations

It looks super cute, but you didn't need all of it.

12. Every shirt you own

You just don't have room for it all or ever wear half of it.

13. Copious school supplies

A few pens and a notebook for each class is fine. Leave the paperclips, push pins, stapler, and binder clips at Staples

14. An iron

Be honest. have you ironed one thing so far?

15. Lots of jewelry

If you wear the same earrings and bracelets everyday at home, why did you think that would change at school?

We've all made these mistakes, haven't we?

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
