Preparations, getting ready, heart and home :)

I have mentioned previously that our oldest daughter is leaving to go away to college….the countdown is now on (for her :))….9 days.   She will be moving out to the dorms.   We’ve been collecting things for her and have piles everywhere….in our room, in the corner in the living room, and in her room 🙂    Her Papa took her shopping this past weekend for some of her “essentials” …..he stocked her up on her toiletries and a couple of cleaning items that she will need, and a few clothing items.  This morning I had an “ah ha” moment, and realized that she is going to need first aid items, and “medicine cabinet” items….. here’s where you all can come in and help me!   What “essentials” do you send off with your kids, or if you were sending your kids (or siblings or nieces/nephews or whatever) off to college, what would you send with them?


Here’s what she has:

  • shampoo
  • conditioner
  • toothbrushes
  • toothpaste
  • laundry detergent
  • fabric softener
  • lint brush
  • all purpose cleaning spray
  • scrub brush
  • tool kit
  • fridge
  • small pot
  • hot pot (for boiling water)
  • french press for her coffee
  • clip on lamp
  • arm rest pillow
  • mattress pad
  • 2 sets sheets
  • new bed pillow
  • plates, cups, glasses, bowls, silverware
  • towels
  • comforters
  • tylenol
  • prescription meds
  • body wash
  • face wash
  • deoderant

Here’s what I thought of this morning:

  • hydrogen peroxide
  • rubbing alcohol
  • first aid items (neosporin, bandaids, guaze)
  • cotton balls
  • Q-tips
  • cold meds
  • allergy meds (benadryl, in case of allergic reaction to something)
  • vitamins
  • dish soap

Any other suggestions?
