I teamed up with Babbleboxx to help you with your last minute checklist of what you need for college. I just graduated from college, and many of you reading my blog are, or soon-will-be, in college.  I wanted to recommend some things that are easy to overlook in your initial packing. These items are basically college survival in a box.  

Last Minute College Checklist


◻ Daily Planner

To stay organized and on top of things, a daily planner is the way to go, especially this gorgeous Posh: Happy Living 2017-2018 Monthly/Weekly Planner Calendar. It’s filled with uplifting quotes and feel-good tips along with the helpful features: monthly tabs, planning pages, spiral-bound, and an elastic band closure. In college, I would often think, “ I don’t need to write this down. I will definitely remember.” Sometimes that was true and sometimes my memory failed me. Once I started keeping track of every class and every assignment, things became smoother, more efficient, and easier to prioritize. 

◻ Cozy Blanket

A blanket comes in handy for dorm life not only for decoration, but for late nights spent studying, days when you’re not feeling well, and lazy days watching some TV or reading a new book. A cozy blanket is a great thing to have in your dorm or apartment. This Viv & Lou Throw Blanket is one of the softest I have ever owned! Plus, it had pink on it, so I love it. 

◻ Throat Drops

Whether you rarely get sick or are constantly fighting off a bug, throat drops are going to be useful! In college, whether you’re staying up too late or screaming to all your favorite songs at a concert, having a sore throat is common. It always seemed like someone had a sore throat and if it wasn’t someone else, it was me. These Luden’s Throat Drops offer yummy flavors like Luden’s cherry and Luden’s watermelon. These throat drops are made for mild throat irritations and are as tasty as candy! They are definitely a great item to have in your backpack. 

◻ Conversation Piece

In college, I would often have friends over for dinner or studying and vice versa. Most college students are on their own for the first time, trying to get to know new people, and create connections. Having a conversation piece in your dorm room or apartment can help the conversations spark. A poetry book for example is a great item that doesn’t take up much space, shows you’re interesting, adds an intellectual touch to your decor, and can strike up an intriguing conversation. Winner of the 2016 Goodreads Choice Award for Poetry, the princess saves herself in this one is a collection of poetry that touches upon numerous serious topics. Discussing these topics will really allow you to get to know someone and express your inner feelings. College is a season in your life when you do experience new adventures but hardships as well. This book will help you explore some deep topics about life.

◻ Classic Watch

Yes, I’m talking about a good ol’ fashioned wrist watch. Teachers often will not allow cellphones in their classroom and classrooms don’t have clocks hanging on the walls to diminish distractions. Having a watch is useful to keep track of the day and stay on schedule. To lessen the stress of having to successfully check your cell phone secretly in the backpack during lecture or staring at the wall causing your professor to glare your way, a watch is a great item to have while in school. Plus, there are so many stylish options like this Casio Vintage Watch.  

◻ Candy

When I study, I like to have something sweet nearby for an energy boost and to treat myself. These Sour Punch Share Me!® Mini Bites are perfect for a pick-me-up during study sessions. Plus, if you’re studying in a group, they are great to share. The sour taste will wake you up and keep you going and a little bit goes a long ways. They are like a shot of delicious adrenaline. 

◻ Shopping Plan

Last but not least, I wish I’d known about EZneeds in college. EZneeds stands for “Everyday needs delivered;” it is a platform that allows you to select items easily online for great prices and delivers to your dorm or apartment in 1-3 days, free nationwide on all orders over $50. The variety of name brands, no membership fees, and options of products are excellent. As a young female in a transient city, it was scary to go to the grocery store alone. Sad but true. EZneeds would have been my best friend. 

I hope that this list is useful in creating your own college survival box. Thank you, Babbleboxx, for the creative idea! I wish I had all these items while I was in school. I’m enjoying these products now as a young professional. Good luck to those starting fall semesters and new chapters in life! I’d love to hear how school is going or what you are up to in life. Xoxo, Shelly
