Last year when my oldest “baby” left for her first year of college I sent her off with a box of office supplies for college students. I had gotten some great tips from friends who already had kids in college. So being the over-prepared mom that I am, I made sure that I prepared her as best I could.
During a college tour, a friend of mine, C., asked the student guide, “What’s the one thing you didn’t bring to college that you wish you had?” The guide answered, “A stapler.” So with that as a starting point, I gathered office supplies my daughter might need in college.
With all her office supplies in one box, it was easy to move and easy for her to locate exactly what she needed once she got there (and mama was gone).
