I don’t work a lot with students. But, last year I re-pinned something awesome I found on Pinterest, created by my colleague Geralin Thomas, owner of Metropolitan Organizing.
It was a post called Setting Up a College Dorm Room.
Ironically…sadly…frustratingly, it has become MY SINGLE MOST OFTEN re-posted pin! (Sigh…of all the other things I’ve created myself and posted…) So, I’m just saying, that’s how I know that college students LOVE THESE IDEAS!!!!!!
Her post includes printable shopping/packing college dorm room lists for the following categories: Toolkit for Parents, Cleaning Supplies, Electronics, Furniture + Accessories, Desk, and Personal. It is based on her personal experience as the mom of a college student.
While I’m at it…(sigh)…here is Geralin’s latest post: 12 Important To-Dos Before Heading To College. It includes another fabulous printable checklist.

Thanks for sharing. Thanks for caring. Thanks for making me laugh!
You make me laugh, too, Geralin! My readers and I appreciate your great college tips.
You both make me laugh! I was about to say “I feel your pain” because my most frequently repinned pin isn’t what I’d have hoped for either, but at least it’s to an article I wrote and had fun researching, even if it’s not on my own blog. I guess it proves that there’s value in guest blogging!
Thanks for sharing the pain, Janet! 🙂 This is a departure for me…I usually only share other people’s stuff in social media, not on my own blog. It’s a guest blog for Geralin, of sorts.
