My Dorm Packing List (I Buy Everything From Costco)

Okay, here it is guys, my dorm packing list. You’ve been asking me since earlier this summer and I’m finally ready to release it. Only, it isn’t in the form you all expected. No, it’s a video.

I wanted to be able to show you the things that I purchased, so (by several requests I received earlier this year) I made a video of me showing off all of my new university items. It’s about 20 minutes long, but includes all of the items I purchased and some of my university tips. For those about to attend school, or to attend in the future, I hope this video helped you out some.

Note: All items in this video are listed below with the name of store and price. Also, excuse the weird lighting as when I was filming it started out really sunny and then started to storm really hard. I cannot control the weather.

I felt like I was Skyping friends. I really don’t understand how people can do this for a living. God bless them.
