Last year we thought we had it all together when we took my daughter off to college. It turned out that we were missing quite a few things and it was a pain in the butt to run off to the store in the middle of decorating the room.
I don’t want you to head off to college and forget stuff, because the only fun in heading there is looking forward to a lunch or when you finally don’t have another box to unload! My Best college checklist will help you plan, prepare and organize before you get to the campus.
Don’t underestimate the power of a checklist as it will keep you organized and it might even help you save money from those last-minute purchases that come from impulse buying. Lavishly live getting ready for college out loud and make sure to print out my best college checklist.
