No More Move-In Madness!

College students can be overwhelmed about move-in day because of how hectic it can become. After reading this article you will have no problem moving into your dorm.
Move-in day is important because you always want to start off on the right foot! To ensure that your move-in day goes as smoothly as possible you can follow these six helpful hints:

  1. Make a list! Before you start packing your things for your dorm room, start by making a list of everything you’ll need at college! From clothing to TVs and PS3s, seeing everything written down will reassure you have packed everything.
     
  2. Communicate! Call or e-mail your roommate before you move in. This way the two of you can decided together who’s going to bring what. It’s also a great way to get to know your roommate if you haven’t met before!
     
  3. Less is more! Remember you are sharing a room. With both of you bringing a lot of unnecessary items, the room will be cluttered fast!
     
  4. Check it twice! On the day of move-in be sure to check your list twice before you leave. Leaving something behind can only add stress on this exciting day!
     
  5. Biggest to smallest! Arrange your furniture in your room first before you start adding personal belongings. This will make it much easier to arrange the room how you both want it.
     
  6. Finishing touch! Finally, your roommate and you can start to add the personal belongings. Organize it now so you won’t have to later!

I have now moved into the dorms four times. Every time I follow these great tips, and I have always had the most memorable move-ins! Finally, no more move-in madness!
