Moving soon, but at a loss of what to pack?


I have got you covered. I am a Sophomore in college however I did not/ do not attend a regular college/university with dorms. Thankfully. Not there is anything wrong with that. Instead I live in an apartment with three roommates. We each have our own bathroom and there is a commons area/living area and kitchen. So in my search for the essential items to take with me I scoured the internet (google) and YouTube for answers to my question. What to bring?! Firstly, I contacted my roommates and checked in with them concerning the commons area and kitchen in order to get an idea of what they already had. I would highly advise doing this if your going to have roommates ,because four toasters in one little kitchen is a bit much. 


The list I used is from bed bath & beyond. You can tweak it anyway you like. Almost forgot to mention, go check out the place or one similar if possible in order to gauge how much space/room you'll be working with. I will put the list down below however feel free to go to the bed bath and beyond website and download/print it for yourself. Also, everything on this list is not necessary, I will highlight the essential items. :)
