The Ultimate College Moving Checklist

Hellooooo everyone and welcome to the first post of my back-to-college series! Of course I’ll be posting a lot of college-related content all year round, but with school starting up in just a couple months, it seems like a good time to start a series!

When I was planning out what to take to my first year of college, I went to pinterest and started pinning tons of checklists and photos for inspiration. I felt prepared for the move, but it turned out that I forgot a few important things. Not only that, but I also brought tons of things I didn’t need or even use once. Now I’m here to make sure someone else benefits from my mistakes. This list can also double as a shopping list so I decided to post it first in our series so you guys can use it to make sure you’ve bought everything!
