There’s now less than one month for most of us sending our “babies” off to college. The task of gathering everything they’ll need and a lot of what they might want is daunting. I know because I’m in the midst of getting my first “baby” ready to leave the nest. We found this back to school shopping list has made our shopping much easier. Easier is good because then you can spend quality family time together this last month rather than stress shopping time.
Simply print out your own copy of this back to college shopping list. Go through the list with your college student and determine how many of each item you need. Scratch off items that don’t apply to you and add items that you’ll want. Then go through and determine which items you already have and check them off. Now you can head off to the store to purchase the items you’ll need and soon your guest room will look like ours.
Using the back to college shopping list has helped us shop sales and save money, which is a huge help on the college budget. Plus, this mama will sleep better knowing I’m sending my baby off on her own with everything she needs to survive and thrive.
But quick, did I forget anything? What were your must-haves when you moved away from home?
