5 Things You’re Forgetting to Pack for College

For many, going to college is their first big move. From your laptop and comforter to socks and hair ties, the list of things you need to bring with you could go on forever. We all want to make the move to college in one trip, but it’s easy to forget an item or two (or 10) when packing. Among all of the things you could bring, there are five items we believe you can’t live without at college. Keep reading to make sure you’re bringing them along!



cozy robe

You’ll quickly find that there is nothing like coming home from a long day of classes and slipping into your comfiest pajamas and fleece robe. Robes are no longer just for getting ready in the morning. Before you know it, you’ll be reaching for your fleece robe every night.



flip flops

That’s right — flip flops are essential year-round! Everyone needs a pair of flip flops for dorm life and the communal bathrooms. In fact, this essential is probably the one you’ll find yourself using the most. It goes without saying that you’ll use your flip flops from your very first day in the dorms.



throw blanket

For that little something to remind you of home, bring along your favorite plush throw blanket. No matter if you’re cozying up for bed, watching Netflix with the roommates or studying for finals, this ultra-soft blanket will always bring you comfort.



laundry bag

When it comes to doing laundry at college, your washer and dryer could be on a different floor or in an entirely different building. This means you’ll need our sturdy Cinch Laundry Bag to carry your clothes to and from your room. Best of all, our laundry bag is made in our water-repellent Lighten Up material, so it keeps your clothes safe and dry.




Our Double Wall Tumbler is sure to be your sidekick. You’ll quickly see reusable tumblers and water bottles all over campus. So, join the eco-friendly crowd and get one, too, that you can use every day, everywhere.
