College Packing List for Girls

Let me just start off by saying how helpful it is to create a list when packing for college. Once you start to take it all in and realize just how much you need to pack, it starts getting a little stressful.

To lighten the burden, I definitely suggest making a college packing list (for girls especially)!

Now the thing with making a college packing list is that it definitely differs depending if you’re a boy or a girl. As a girl, I definitely can give advice to my fellow ladies on what to pack!

There’s certainly a lot to consider when packing to go away for about a year and we girls have certain needs! To save you time on making an entire list and thinking about the special extras I’ve created a college list: girls edition!

It’s a regular college list with the average student’s needs in addition to the items only girls would need.

Guys, if you’re reading this post, I would probably stop now…we may be getting into some uncomfortable territory, lol!
