These lists helped us prepare for our daughter's big move to college.
They are from gifts.com
They were a good starting off point for us(and I liked that they weren't trying to sell us anything).
This one got cut off but there was also comb/brush, hairdryer and curling iron/straightener.
Of course we didn't buy everything on the list. You need to check with your college to see what you can and cannot bring plus she is living with 3 other girls and they have a full kitchen so we didn't want duplicates of things like microwaves and coffee makers.
We did end up buying a lot and here are just *some* of the things we got.
Cotton Topped Mattress Pad (Target)
Chevron Mug (Target)
Ikea bowls, silverware, cutting boards,plates,
Mini Ironing Board
Space Saving Hangers Like these.
Plastic Drawers (we bought these once we got up there).
Sterilite Milk crate, turquoise from Target.
Moroccan Lantern and Flameless Candles (no real candles allowed).
I think we did pretty well. We only had to pick up a few things at Target once we got up there and only brought home a set of bed risers and one storage crate!
Have you sent a child off to college, any words of wisdom for us?
