College Packing List!


See updated packing list here!

With 3 weeks down in the big apple and only one week left, I think I am finally adjusting to dorm life. It has given me a good taste what to expect when I move into the Furman dorms in August. A few nights ago, it was entirely too hot to leave air conditioning so instead of exploring New York, I decided to make an in-depth packing/shopping list for college! My friend’s mom started this list and then I went through and added all the stuff I thought I would want. Being the type A person I am, I color coordinated the whole thing to make it easier to read. If you want to use it, I would suggest simply copying and pasting it into a word doc and printing it from there!

  4. There is every good aspect which have been emphasized with simple categorization and would be more easy for us to regard it as important as we can do with.
