Packing List Take 1

So I know I have 80 something days to go until I leave for Disney. But, I'm hoping to get a job or go back to my old job before I leave…problem is I have way more time then I know what to do with but at some point I won't have the time to do all this thinking and preparing for Disney…the next thing I know I will be driving down to Florida..ahhhh!

Ok so I wanted to make a list of possible things will need for Disney…..

  • Clothes
  1. Business Casual Attire: this is what I suggest to everyone get a few pair of slack personally I got 3 (black, dark grey, and navy blue), get somewhere near 4 or 5 shirt (I got either 4 or 5 it's in my blog below this one), if you can invest in a black blazer you for a very easy professional look with a pair a slack. Get one pair of COMFY shoes; even if you want to get cute flats…make sure you have a basic comfy shoe. Don't forget you will prolly need DRESS socks.
  2. Casual Attire: if you doing Fall advantage you'll need shorts, t-shirts, tank tops are a give, along with some jeans, possibly some sweat pants if your into them, but make sure you have SOME kind of warmer clothing it can get cool. Don't forget your flip-flops, sneakers, and other every day shoes. How much do I suggest depends on your style, hobbies, etc I suggest bring at least 3 or 4 pairs of jeans…unless you a I wear jeans everyday person, as far as short goes its more open ended I'm going to have a stash of shorts and bermudia shorts an prolly somewhere near 15 pairs…because I love to mitch and match and all but, you could get away with some where around the 5-6 area. Shirts are more open ended to, again it depends on your style I will have several camis and tees, along with a few tanks and other shirts. But I would say in total you want to have at least 10 shirts if not more. I will have more because I typically layer a camis with a t-shirt so I know for every t-shirt I'd have a cami. Don't forget your hoodies, jackets and such. Nor, sneakers and sock…all that stuff.
  3. Pajamas: Please spare you roommate of any inappropriate pajamas. Go to Wal-Mart, old navy, wherever invest in some P.J pants…PLEASE! Lol. Also you prolly need some t-shirt (girls specifically) here my advice 1 wait until you get to Disney grab some cute t-shirts, 2. Gets some white t-shirts and make some tie dye…lol Its so much fun and easy. 3. Get one's from your college or at the rest area on your way down.
  4. Formal Attire: There is a formal at the Disney college program girls I assume you'll want a dress…find something cute or maybe you already have something, boys you might need a jacket for this but I'm not 100% sure, or you could just need a tie.
  • Bedding and Linens
  1. Sheets and Brackets: I suggest everyone bring at least two sets of sheets, in addition make sure you have an extra blanket, just in case either if it's really cold…you spill something who knows. Also make sure to have a comforter for your bed.
  2. Towels, yet again I suggest at least two, and in addition I would bring a beach towel for the pool and if you go to the beach or something. I also suggest having the smaller little towels and a wash cloth or too. EVEN if you never use them…you're not at home anymore and mommy's not there.
  • Electronical Things:
  1. IPOD or Music: If this is your cup of tea I suggest having some form of portable personal music player. I know I will be bringing mine.
  2. Alarm Clock: Possibly more than 1…lol. Okay so I will prolly end up with 2 alarm clocks possibly, Ill prolly bring my basic alarm clock, and my ipod alarm clock. Only because I can only set the alarm on my ipod one with the remote and Im VeRY good at losing it so Ill my basic one for when I don't feel like looking for it!
  3. T.V: This is up to you guys as a whole to discuss the whole T.V thing. If any of mine potential roommates/housemates out there: I have a 22 inch flat screen I'm willing to bring…not to big not to small. I love it!
  4. Computer/Laptop: If your taking online classes this is a MUST, if not you can prolly do without or just use the Club computers! But it's still more convenient to have your own.
  5. Camera/Phone/Printer: These are other electronics to consider bringing or investing in. I will have prolly all three…yet again any potential roommate I will have a printer I'm willing to share…lol. I will also have a camera and phone!!! Picture time!!!
  • Bathroom/Kitchen/Other Related Things
  1. Cleaning Products: Okay let's keep this easy invest in some Windex and spay Bleach and you can clean just about EVERYTHING…you need dish liquid too. I swear you can get buy with just those three products…oh and some sponges and paper towels.
  2. Hair Products, Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Bar soap, Make-up (if needed) all this I suggest besides makeup to buy fresh and un opened. It makes it easier to get it there…you could buy it when you arrive too.
  3. Dish towels and Pot Holders..I suggest visiting the Christmas Tree Shop they always have some out and normally pretty cute.

Okay so there's prolly some more stuff….put I can't think right now and I feel like I've been writing forever….
