Useful Items Commonly Forgot When Moving to College

Packing for college, or anywhere even, can always be a hassle. There are the checklists, the making everything fit, and the last-second items that always seem to be skipped over or forgotten when the time comes. While Collegeboxes can already help with the steps that come after packing, why not come up with a list of commonly forgotten items that you don’t really think about until the time comes?

Small Forget-Me-Nots:

  • Chip clips
  • Small trash can
  • Ear plugs
  • Clear bag
  • Batteries
  • Ice tray
  • Scissors
  • Command Hooks
  • Portable Charger
  • Extra wall plugs (charger blocks)
  • Door Stop
  • Can Opener

Big Forget-Me-Nots:

  • Electric kettle
  • Clock
  • Mirror
  • Ottoman (for extra sitting and storage)
  • Beach towel
  • Water Filter
  • Extra Towels

You may not require all the items listed, but it’s good to think about the little things ahead of time. Don’t forget to always double-check your own list for necessities that may not be on a generic list. The best way to do this is to keep track of everything while you pack, and we can help with that! The U-Haul App on Google Play or Apple App Store provides a way for students to keep organized and track their boxes, suitcases, totes, and anything else with the “My Belongings Organizer”. No account is required.
