(Update: Julie’s Uber-Complete College Dorm Packing List is now updated for 2012! For more great tips and advice for moms of college students be sure to check out our other blog, Practical College Moms.)
My daughter, Julie, is the queen of organization. When she left for college she created a packing list. Now known as “the list,” every summer I get numerous calls from friends with students heading off to college asking, “Do you have a copy of Julie’s list? Can I have it?”
When Joan and I started writing this series, I called Julie and asked her to recheck “the list.” Julie and her fellow teammates on The University of Nebraska Swim Team looked it over and made more additions. (Thanks to all!) If you use the list, your student might forget one or two small things but I can guarantee it’s pretty darn complete. Note: it’s created by girls…guys will obviously not need some of the things on the list. So here it is, Julie’s Uber-Complete College Dorm Packing List.
