College – The Other Packing List

Posted by David Lachowicz on

It’s mid-August, and time to send your college kids back to school.

On the upside, no more piles of laundry, budget-busting grocery lists, or late-night rattlings around the house.

On the downside, well, there’s no denying the littles simply aren’t little anymore.

The school probably sent a packing list, or has one online. If not, there are about 598,367 such lists on the Web.

We’re offering up a list covering needed items that, once Junior is at school, make us go, “Oh, yeah! We forgot the . . . .”

Here we go:

  • Beach towels
  • Duct tape
  • Earplugs
  • Lightbulbs
  • Safety pins
  • Sleep mask
  • Vacuum
  • Bug spray – for spiders, roaches, ants
  • 1-cup measuring cup
  • Wrinkle remover spray
  • Lap desk
  • Reliefband – stops symptoms of morning or motion sickness
  • Chip clips
  • Lanyard
  • Carabiners
  • Passport
  • Command™ strips and hooks
  • Portable electronics charger
  • Spare pair of glasses
  • Power strips

What else should be on this list of stuff college kids need (not clothes, food, or school supplies, but other necessities)?
