Actually, kate [i]did[/i] organize the list into seperate categories. But it didn't go so well (accusations of spamming, advertising, clogging the board).

A great way to help you organize Kate's list:
Copy the things you are going to need into Microsoft Excel. Include the things you already have and the things you are going to need to buy; you're including the things you've already got to help you remember to pack it, of course! Once you're there, divide your items into "categories" by favorite stores where you can shop to buy that item; for example, my "categories" consist of "Target," "Staples," "Ikea," "the Container Store," etc.. Highlight or bold the items you still need and you'll have a convenient shopping list and you can buy all the items you need by hitting a store only once.
Hope that helped!
I want to be a bug on the wall when you have to pack up all that stuff by yourself to either ship it or store it at the end of the school year. GOOD LUCK!
Great list- I'll be using it myself next year for D2.
Somewhere to store all those little items: my son brought a 5-drawer plastic cart on wheels. It's only about 14" x 14" and 3' tall. It could double as an end table. They come in many sizes; my daughter bought a 7-drawer cart. She has more "stuff". To transport it home, just tape the drawers shut & roll it out. There are also smaller ones that would fit nicely on a desktop or bookshelf.
The list is awesome!!! Thanks a lot Kate.
great list.. thanks alot!!
I wudve overlooked alot of things if i hadnt been thru the list
I'd bring lubricant with me as well. ;)
The correct usage is 'take' rather than 'bring' in this situation:
Ex. What to take to college, what to bring home.
That's not true (see the usage note):
You could just as easily say, "What to bring to college" and "What to take home." The difference is that "take home" implies movement away from somewhere to the home, whereas "bring home" implies movement to the home only. (You'll note that they mention "take" means movement away, while "bring" means movement towards; in this case, the adverb "home" already means movement towards, which is why "bring home" means movement towards only.) You'll find that most people will not even recognize the distinction, and in any case, the lack of distinction "bears no particular stigma of incorrectness or illiteracy."
yeah, have you heard of the term take-home tests?
Thank you so much for putting together this list. I've been trying to put together my own since April, and you've got a lot on here that I'd forgotten that I'll definitely need. This is an awesome list!
I just thought I'd show my appreciation for a great list...
Ahhhhh! College shopping is going to leave me BROKE!
As I said b4, the list is awesome but for those who think its too exhaustive to sit read and edit to get ur own list here's another method to get ur college list done.[ i read this somewhere on CC]
Pick a week when you anticipate that your life will be "normal" within the context of your family's lifestyle. Then pick two weekdays and either Saturday or Sunday as your three sampling days. Get a small notebook and devote two pages to each day. Divide each day's pages into sections for morning, afternoon, and evening.
For each of your three sampling days, make entries in your notebook at the end of each day's three periods. At noon, review the morning and write down everything of yours that you needed during the morning. At dinner, recap the afternoon, and before bed review your evening's needs. You'll then have a list of 85-90 percent of everything you'll need to pack for school. The other 10-15 percent will come in the form of suggestions from your Mother.
Just a tip for college shopping..................
The DOLLAR store! ;)
Of course you can't get everything there, but I've found some good stuff there and it's saved me $.
