A tutorial on how to make the perfect college survival kit for a first-time or returning college student! The collegiate in your life will appreciate your thoughtful gift and be totally prepared for the semester ahead. Thanks to Procter & Gamble for sponsoring this guide!
Well this is weird.
For the first time in almost 18 years, I am not getting ready to head back to school this fall. No school supplies shopping, no fussing over a first day outfit, no anxiously awaiting my class schedule, no textbook buying (the worst.). It’s, like I said, WEIRD. Everything feels different and like I am missing out on something! (Although I do have a new job which I fill you in on soon!!)
I am one of those people who actually enjoys school. I love the routine, the structure, the LEARNING. 🙂 So not heading back to school (until next spring that is) is throwing me off a bit. I’ve even has dreams a few times that I AM heading back to school this month and that I’ve forgotten and am thus totally unprepared! It’s the worrier in my for sure.
So to help ease myself out of the routine of going back to school this fall, I decided to channel all my thoughts about it in to something productive. Something that can help all of YOU that are starting classes soon!
Whether you’re a first time college student, a rising senior, or even the family member of someone heading off to school, you’ll love this east tutorial on how to put together the ULTIMATE DIY Off-to-College Survival Kit. You (or your loved one) will have everything they need to tackle tough papers, set up their dorm room, and stay healthy and happy during the tough year ahead.
Step 1 | Find a basket or small plastic storage bin.
Step 2 | Compile your list of Off-to-College Essentials!
Here’s what’s on mine…
+ Detergent and Laundry Products (such as: Tide Pods-6 Pack)
+ Simple, Healthy Snack Foods
+ Makeup (such as: CoverGirl Intensify Me! Liquid Liner, CoverGirl Colorlicious Lipstick)
+ Small First Aid Kit or Supplies
+ Bath Products (such as: Secret Outlast Women’s Invisible Solid Deodorant, Old Spice Lasting Legend Dirt Destroyer Body Wash , and Gillette Venus Flex Swirl Razor)
+ Generic Pain Meds
+ Rubbing Alcohol
+ Pair of Flip Flops (for showering in)
+ Ear Plugs
+ Soft Throw Blanket
+ Sleeping Eye Mask
+ Gift Card to Bed Bath & Beyond (right now when you spend $40 dollars on P&G products there, you get a $10 dollar gift card automatically!)
Step 4 | Organize all your essentials in your bin, wrap in clear, plastic gift wrap, and tie with a bow!
Easy, right? All of these products can easily be purchased at your local Bed Bath & Beyond! Or better yet, when you enter this awesome giveaway, you can win all the above mentioned brand name products! All you have to do is share your favorite #CollegeSpeak term. What’s #collegespeak? Well apparently it’s all the funky words that college students are saying nowadays. Things like ‘momclean’, ‘alldayer’, and ‘freshzen’. I am only a few months out of school and even I haven’t heard of all of these! Pretty funny how times change so quickly in the collegiate world! 😉
