The Ultimate A-to-Z College Dorm Supplies Packing List



Gentle reminders are a little less than effective as a means of communicating with my kids, this is a pleasantly worded understatement. The truth of the matter is that I sincerely and honestly believed my son to be silently suffering from undiagnosed, untreated, hearing loss. Our smiling/chuckling pediatrician repeatedly assured me that this is not the case, however, having a fifth opinion on the matter frequently crosses my frazzled mind. True story, my kids have selective hearing. Solving this communication barrier, my passion for check list has developed into a full fledged obsession. I can create a checklist for all occasions. I present Exhibit A - The Ultimate A-to-Z College Dorm Supplies Packing List. (<-- That's Your Free Printable Link!)
