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
- Safety pins
- Sleep mask
- 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
- 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)?
