Take it from me, a mother of five, helping your children pack for college can be stressful. They want to take everything they own to a dorm room that has about half the storage space of their bedroom. You have to be the voice of reason—even while you’re holding back tears because you’re going to miss them so much!
Use our College Packing List to make packing for college more efficient and less stressful for you and your child. Look over the checklist together and see what your child can live without, and what needs to be added. Most importantly, do your best to keep your frustrations in check so that you can lavish your child with lots of love before he or she heads off to school. Send them off knowing they are ready to flourish!
