It's the first week of August, which means time is speeding up and we are getting closer and closer to move-in day at college! Before you leave home for the upcoming term or semester, check out our list of some of the must-have items for the looming college move-in day.
1. Phone chargers
This goes without saying, but it is just a reminder to make sure to bring your phone chargers with you on move-in day! While they are easily replaceable, it is always great to make sure you have them with you stowed away for unpacking!
2. A planner
A planner will help you stay organized on the first day of classes, so it might be important to make sure you have one ready even on move-in day! It could also help with making lists of everything to need to bring with you on move-in day.
3. A flash-drive
A lot of your classes might require that you make use of documents for papers and other assignments. You will definitely not only want to save them to your computer, but also have them saved on a flash drive to take with you anywhere (or store away for later!).
4. A backpack
This item is self-explanatory. Not only can you pack things in your backpack for move-in day, but you will also need this for the school year!
5. Comfortable shoes
If your campus was anything like ours, you will be putting your legs to use for getting around campus. Comfortable shoes will also help keep you moving and comfy on move-in day as well! Bonus!
6. An umbrella
No matter where you are headed for school, you are bound to experience some rain. Be sure to pack your umbrella for those rainy days! We promise you will thank us later.
7. First-aid kit
You never know what you might need, or even what your roommate could need in time of a mini-emergency. Better to be safe than sorry and make sure you have your first-aid kit on hand for move-in day!
8. Extra towels
Because why not? It might be awhile until you do your next load of laundry so be sure to have extra towels on hand for move-in day.
9. A power strip
Sometimes there just aren't enough outlets for all of your electronics. This is where the power strip comes in hand!
After it is all said and done, move-in day can get quite dirty with cleaning and sweating. If you are not close to a sink, your second best bet is to make use of the hand-sanitizer you brought with for move-in day!
