When packing for your first year of college, it can be overwhelming to decide what is most important to take with you. Most dorms will have a packing list of college essentials, and there will be certain items you want to take to simulate home as much as possible. However, it’s important to recognize that the dorm is a limited space, and you will be sharing it with at least one other person. I still remember the chaos of move-in day with both me and my roommate taking numerous trips with giant carts, the whole place barely walkable between all our stuff spread across the floor to both pairs of parents along with siblings. To make this the unpacking process easier, here are some items you can leave at home.Towards the end of the semester, it also helps to take things back gradually. If you keep bringing things, you’ll forget how stuffed your car might have been when you first came. Remember, you have to move all that stuff out.
