In less than a month I will have a child leaving to live in the dorms at college The packing process will begin very soon and so I decided to create a list of items that we need to be sure to take:
quarters are needed for laundry machines, those late night snacks from vending machines, as well as many other things We will be sure to pack a couple of rolls of quarters
Speaking of laundry, yes he will be doing his own laundry so he will need his own detergent. Since I will be visiting possibly 2 times a month to take him to eat and visit I have started to save coupons to help him with this little debt. He also has a linen bag for laundry and I am hoping this does not end up being full each time I visit LOL
Now while my son is not one that uses a lot of shower products my daughters did and took along a shower caddy. With my son we packed his soaps, shampoo, towels and rags and that was all he needed in this department
We have decided to take only 8 sets of clothes for him because he will be sharing a room, he can wash whatever is needed and I will visit often so there is not a need to take tons of items. The one thing not to forget in this department are the hangers
In hopes that this does not happen I will be sending with him a few trashbags a trash can, clorox wipes and other items
so now the list is partialy made and the work to getting it together needs to begin.
