       If you’re anything like I was my freshman year, then you’re  super excited and ready for move-in!! Just be sure not to over do it, here are 5 items I regret bringing to college + a few things I’m glad I brought!

1. TOO MANY SKINCARE PRODUCTS

       I bought a ton of body washes, face masks, scrubs, and cleansers thinking I would use them all. But the truth is, I didn’t use HALF!! haha. I was left with products well into my sophomore year of college!

2. PURSES/ HANDBAGS

       I brought almost all of my purses from home, and I hardly ever used them. Just being completely honest, I probably my handbags less than a handful of times the entire year!

3. DESK DECORATIONS

       I love decorating, but maybe I overdid it… just a little bit! Although they were cute, I ended up not using half of the things on my desk.

4.BINDERS

       I probably bought a binder for every class I had, and they all turned out to be huge waste of money! Lugging around a backpack full of binders, and then shuffling through them during a lecture was not the move. For spring semester, I replaced my binders with a single 5 -subject notebook. I have been using 1 notebook a semester ever since.

5. ALL OF MY SHOES!

       I brought all of my tennis shoes, sandals, boots, and a few pair of heels. 🤦🏾‍♀️ AND yup, you guessed it! I didn’t wear half of them!! Don’t overpack!!

THINGS I'M GLAD I BROUGHT

UNDER THE BED STORAGE

     Honestly, this little cube thingy was one of the best things I bought my freshman year. I was able to re-use and re-organize them to fit different spaces.

BROOM & DUST PAN

       I’m glad I brought a broom & dust pan for obvious reasons…. I feel like this is an essential that is often forgotten about until the last minute,

STORAGE OTTOMAN

       I stuffed a lot of stuff into this tiny little ottoman {mostly snacks}, but the best part about having this ottoman was using it as a step stool!! haha. I lofted my bed as high as it could be, and without this ottoman, I was running and jumping onto my bed {no exaggeration}.

THINGS I WISH I BOUGHT

VACCUM

       After borrowing my friend vacuum a few times, but I decided to purchase this $20 vacuum.

LINT ROLLER

       Just buy one… It’ll come in handy more than you think!

FIRST AID KIT

I don’t know if I’m just super clumsy, or what… but I asked my roommate for a bandaid at least once week.
