  1. Reading this whilst taking a break for packing for university. So helpful! Last year was my first year and I took way too much so this year I’ve packed a lot less but can’t help thinking i’ve missed something, so thank you for this list!

  2. I’m definitely an overpacker too. Last year, we weren’t allowed to stay in the dorms during our winter break (around 4 weeks), so packing was a nightmare. 😩 I just started making packing lists this year myself and I also try to see what stuff I don’t end up using/wearing so I can donate them or throw them away!

    • Oh no! My friend had that where they could rent out their room for the christmas and easter holidays so they would rent out one room and then put all their stuff into another room and split the cost. xx
