What To Bring

And What NOT to Bring

I LOVE packing! It's one of the best parts of any trip : )I will say, though, this is one of the strangest trips I've ever had to prepare for... I'm an overpacker by nature, but I know I won't need THAT much. I'm going to try and minimize, and keep track of what I do and don't use.  

 If you already know who your roommate is, I would suggest contacting them and eliminating as many things as possible, such as:
  • printer
  • over the door towel/coat rack
  • tv (both for the living room and the bedroom)
  • DVD player
  • kitchen appliances
  • wireless router
  • shower curtain
  • decorations

Anything that you only need one of per room, I'd say either contact your roomie, don't bring it and plan on buying one cheap from Walmart, or have a plan to have your parents bring it back. There's no need for extra clutter in your apartment or car/suitcase. 

Obviously, this is a girl's packing list. I'm sure a guy's would probably be a lot shorter and probably less complicated, but obviously you could edit from this. Mine isn't all inclusive; it's a record of all the things I'm bringing. I don't wear glasses or have prescription medicine, but I doubt that the people who do use those items would forget them... unless they're taking a prescription for forgetfullness. There's a lot of things that I don't think I would necessarily need to bring... I hate clutter, so having something extra for four months seems like a pain. When I do pack and this list becomes a reality, I will have a more accurate list of the exact clothes I'm bringing, because I know that's always a point of debate for us ladies : ) Also, I didn't include anything like paper towels or cleaning supplies, because I'm not going to haul all that stuff for seven hours when I can just buy it at Walmart down there, and I'm sure someone driving eighteen hours would heartily agree with me.
