Freshman Year Packing List

Freshman Year Packing List

As the oldest child, my parents and I had to figure out the whole college thing by ourselves--we went into the packing process completely blind. To prepare myself for what I might need to bring to school with me I went through about 40 different packing lists I found on Google and Pinterest. At the end of the year I went through and refined the list to show only the items I actually used. Without further ado here's my freshman year packing list...
