How soon after you got back from dropping your kid off at college that you started to pack up their first care package? You probably loaded them up with the necessities such as your homemade chocolate chip cookies, Ramen noodles and coffee pods. Here are some more awesome things to pack in your college kids care package:
The hope is that your kid will be back for Christmas and Thanksgiving. But there will be a few holidays in between that they’ll be spending at college. You can send along some decorations for Halloween, Mardi Gras, St. Patrick’s Day and Easter. If their birthday falls on the college calendar, then they would probably appreciate a few of those cute decorations as well.
Long Phone Charging Cord
Your college kid is going to need their phone charged almost around the clock. It becomes their best way of calling home and for keeping track of the schedule. Unfortunately, many dorm rooms weren’t design for the small charging cords that came with the phone. Believe it or not, you can actually buy a 10 foot charging cord that allows them to stay plugged in anywhere in the room.
Laundry Pods, Etc.
Hopefully, you prepped your college kid by teaching them how to do the laundry. They’ll learn very quickly how vital cleaning supplies are like laundry pods, shampoos, sunscreen, moisturizer, lip balm, soap and cleaning wipes are. These are things they may not necessarily by for themselves but when you send it along it will definitely get used.
How many pairs of socks have you bought your child over the year? Probably too many to count. Well, that job hasn’t stopped. They still need plenty of socks and underwear. You know the drill!
College kids are always short on cash. Even before they ask, you should make sure they’ve got spending money. That doesn’t always mean sending it along in an envelope but instead make a transfer into their checking account or by them gift cards.
Once those care packages have been dropped off at the post office you can set your sights on getting your home back in order.
