Although I don't have a child entering college just yet, as I flipped through the pages of the book I read so many great tips that I'm not sure that I would've thought of when the time does come for my son or daughter to head to college.

This book is full of great tips and ideas such as:

Everyone knows to pack a laundry bag or basket for dirty clothes, but few think to pack a good sewing kit so that simple repairs to clothes can be made on the spot.

Everyone worries about the food and meal plans but forgets the importance of daily vitamins

Everyone taking a car to campus thinks about jumper cables but you must also have an ice scraper ...even Houston, TX has ice storms.
