What to pack for college (+free printable)
It's that awkward inbetween month where your jut waiting. Whether you're waiting on results from an exam or for your acceptance to university, either way you're between school and uni and your starting to think about wahat your going to bring and what your going to leave behind. I had devised a handy packing list for when I was moving over seas to university which might come in handy. Let's break it down shall we?
So moving from Ireland, I only took things personal to me; portfolios, some clothes, books, all that sort of thing. But when I arrived to my house with my dad we had had a look around to see what I would need to get for university. I then picked up anything from the likes of Argos, Ikea, wilkos and Primark (UK).
Of course not everything on the list is essential, I'm just trying to cover every aspect and remind you of anything you might forget to pack for college. You an can save this pictures directly from your browser or phone so you can take it with you when you go shopping. I also left a little space for you to add some of your own university essentials. Keep an eye out for more University posts to come!
Don't worry if you don't get everything or forget to pack some stuff for university, you can always pick up new bits as you go along. I think I left with like twice as much stuff!! Oh, don't forget some method of transport (if you need it!) I had a bike which was so much fun! Actually let me show you these 2 super cool things!
so your kind of lucky I had these pictures because I took them yonks ago to show my sister. The top picture is a jewelry hanger from Primark that cost like £2! It's pretty cool, you hang your bits and bobs on it and then it hangs flat in your closet or on a hook or door handle. It's great for when you don't have a lot of space. The second picture is an over the door coat hook. It fits over the top of most doors and allows you extra storage space for coats and bags without damaging your room and causing you to loose your deposit! I got this from Ikea, they have a small variety of cool hooks and stuff.
Are you getting organised for going to college yet or do you prefer not to think about it yet? haha don't worry, I was the same! Let meknow down below if I forgot anything or if you'd like to add something to the packing list.
