College Shopping List: School Supplies
No college shopping list would be complete without school supplies!
Ultimate College Shopping List Tip: Stock up on all of these items now. Otherwise you may end up needing to hit the campus bookstore for supplies and those are WAY overpriced.
Black, blue or red pens
Tape (scotch, masking, and duct–yes, you’ll use them all!)
College ruled paper
College Shopping List: Entertainment
The entertainment portion of this college shopping list is pretty short… that’s because you’re at college. If you aren’t studying or working, try to get out and enjoy college life. Meet some new people. Join a club. Don’t sequester yourself in your dorm room 24/7.
Ultimate College Shopping List Tip: If your family or a friend subscribes to Netflix (or another paid service like Amazon Prime) you may be able to use their account to access content. This will allow you to leave a lot of the DVDs at home and save on space.
Your favorite books (don’t go overboard–they’re a pain to move)
Bible (or another inspirational book)
Letters from family and friends to open throughout your first week
Family photos (don’t forget frames)
Deck of cards

Ultimate College Shopping List Tip: Get creative with your college shopping list. You don’t have to purchase everything on the list. You may be able to “inherit” stuff from friends and family members. You also may be able to get by without some of the stuff… it just depends on your situation.
