Sam’s Ultimate Failproof Guide to Packing

Extensive Packing List

Warning: This will seem like a lot, but it doesn’t once you get there, and you can use your own judgment as to whether or not you will need something. Also, this particular list is geared towards my specific univeristy

  1. Bedroom
    1. Bedding
      1. Duvet cover and insert or comforter
      2. Matching sham
      3. Sheets and pillow cases (I recommend two sets of cotton minimum, one set of flannel in addition is optional)
      4. Egg crate topper (super cheap but super comfy after the first few nights—you may want to get a second one towards the end of the school year)
      5. Mattress pad—holds the topper in place
      6. Mattress protector (as recommended by an Anon). Some universities have bed bug problems, and you never really know what happened on your bed before it was yours, and this will help ensure a little more help on the cleanliness front.
      7. Pillows
      8. Stuffed animals
    2. Desk Area
      1. Stapler
      2. printer, ink, and paper
      3. Three hole punch
      4. Binders and notebooks
        1. For some classes you’ll want to keep every piece of paper ever (things related to your major and math classes), so these will need to be in binders.
        2. Math and science classes lend themselves to hand-written notes, so you’ll want to use a binder with loose leaf paper or the notebook of your choosing for those.
          *note* My personal favorites are Mead Five Start Flex Hybrid Notebinders
      5. Pens, pencils, Sharpies (you will use black and silver frequently for labeling random things)
      6. Tape dispenser (can be a cheap $2 plastic one, or a heavy duty, belongs in the office of a CEO one)
      7. glue sticks (yes, you will use them)
      8. Headphones
      9. Phone and laptop
      10. Phone and laptop chargers
      11. HDMI cord (literally the most used item in my dorm room)
      12. Power strip
      13. Desk lamp
      14. Post Its, paperclips, extra staples, push pines
    3. Closet and Laundry
      1. Leave your high school shirts at home unless you want to use them as sleep shirts. You’ll get plenty of shirts from your college or university.
      2. Hangers. Mine are mismatched and plastic and came straight from my closet at my mother’s.
      3. Hamper. You can choose your preference here. I prefer sturdy plastic with handles, but my roommate loved her fabirc one. Walmart has one that rolls, which is cool. Maybe you just want a laundry bag.
      4. Detergent.
      5. Fabric softener and Downy balls
      6. Dryer sheets
    4. Other
      1. Fridge
      2. coffee mugs (can use for tea, coffee, soup, ice water, milk for cookies, Spaghetti-Os, literally anything you can think of)
      3. microwave if you don’t have one in the common area/common area is far away
      4. Small table lamp or floor lamp (put this somewhere across the room from the desk lamp because overhead lighting is the worst)
      5. Books and movies
      6. TV (optional, I use mine as a second monitor pretty frequently)
      7. Video game console, accessories, and games (if desired)
      8. Purse/wallet
      9. Trash bags
      11. Canvases, posters, pictures, corkboards, etc
      12. Command strips (the Velcro kind of the absolute best) and sticky tack (Loc-Tite brand, it’s blue)
      13. Keurig or coffee pot (if you’re into that) and all the fixin’s
  2. Bathroom – some of these are included because I have a bathroom within my dorm room
    1. Trash can
    2. Shower curtain, liner, and rings
    3. Bathmat
    4. Toilet brush and cleaner
    5. Plunger. Plumbing on campuses can be iffy
    6. Lady supplies (if you need those sort of things)
    7. Toiletries and makeup
    8. Some sort of caddy if you’re living in traditional or you’re sharing your bathroom with multiple people and don’t want to clutter the counter
    9. Toothbrush holder
    10. Soap dispenser
    11. hand towels, bath towels, wash cloths

I leave for Lisbon at 5am tomorrow morning and so I’ve been packing! I got this packing list in tiger and a lot of people have asked if I can upload it because there isn’t a Tiger shop in their country. This isn’t mine, and I didn’t want to upload it as a Google document because if you want a higher quality copy I think you should go to Tiger and buy a pad, they’re only £1. Xxx emily

What to do before the Interrail trip

Also goes with other traveling

1. How are you going to this trip: alone or in a group. In a group you may be safer and have more fun, but you might also get into fights during the trip, even if you go with your best friends or family.
2. Time. How much you have time to travel. Two weeks or a month? Figure that out.
3. The budget, how much you have money to spend and remember to have some emergency money somewhere. Do not put all the money in the same place!
4. Are you going go-with-the-flow style or with a carefully made-up plan
- We have something in between. We know where we are going, but don’t know what we’ll end up doing there. Though we have looked what to do in all of the places, but we haven’t actually decided them.
5. Gather information
- About anything you’ll need
Phone numbers to: bank, embassies, insurance company, emercengy numbers where you’re headed, (your countrys international number),
Adresses: embassies, hotels/ hostels/ other accommodations, places of interest
Customs: culture, what not/to do, what you might need in somewhere (for example: long skirts/shirts in some churches)
- a list where you would like to go (but remember anything can happen and you might not get to see that, so don’t expect to get there 100%)
6. Payments, Insurances etc. important stuff
Interrail / Eurail pass
Visas if needed

Vaccinations/ medication for travel if needed

Flights if needed
Hostels/ Hotels / other accommodations if booked earlier
Travel insurance
Some places where you need to book your visit earlier through the internet (for example: Disneyland Paris is cheaper if booked online)
7. Shopping for essentials
- a good backpack, enough space for you, comfy for your back
- good shoes, trainers or similar, shoes that are soft and designed for long walks
- locks for backs and other locking situations
- a simple camera (if not owned yet) and memory cards
- adapters, chargers
- emercengy kit (plasters, disinfectant, medicine etc.), sewing kit
- guide books, maps, dictionaries (might not need and might weigh a lot, so think if you really need)
- a towel designed for traveling (goes to a small space and dries faster than normal ones)
- compression sacks (sacks that make your clothes compressed into a smaller size, so that you’ll have more room in your backpack)
- change money if needed
- a diary to write everything in
- washing powder for your clothes
8. What you’ll also need
- toiletries/ sanitaries, in small containers (toothbrush and -paste, sun cream, body butter, lip-cream, shampoo, soap etc.)
- medicine
- passport and other important documents (like prescriptions for some medicines etc.)
- a daypack
- penknife, flashlight might come in handy
- sunglasses, scarf for sunny weathers
- sleeping bag

- an old phone (because new smartphones attract thieves)
- chargers for any electric equipment
- some student-cards are handy even in abroad giving you discount
- cards to play with or something small to keep you awake in trains
- pens, scisors, tape, paper, safety pins
- handkerchiefs (also toilet paper if you want)
- plastic bags
- a plastic mug. You could cook something in a hostel in it and drink some juice from it.
- if you feel safe and want, a tablet (or Ipod touch…). In it you can put maps, books etc. You can also communicate with family with it, write a blog or something else. You can get into internet when Wi-fi is around. Down side is the same as for a smartphone, thieves like them so think hard before taking one with you.
9. Do not take
- lots of makeup, really no one sees you. Little makeup is okay, but really, do you need it? It also takes time.
- books, they’re heavy
- computer, a smartphone etc. You’re experiencing stuff, you will not need a smartphone during your stay, really.
- for girls, you don’t need all of your clothes and shoes. Only the comfy and practical ones. No high heels, maybe don’t take dresses as well, I don’t know.
- no hairstraightners, curlers or anything like them
- fullfillable waterbottle. When you’re abroad it’s safer if you only drink bottled drinks.
- do not take the whole insides of your wallet, only the essentials and leave others home. Also leave all the unneeded keys as well.
10. Clothing
- shirts: t-shirts, tank top, sweather, hoodie, jacket depending on time of the year and destination
- bottom: shorts, skirt, sweat pants, jeggings, leggings etc. No jeans (in warm places at least), they’ll be uncomfortable. Pockets are good, hidden pockets even better
- shoes: good ones that you can walk the whole trip with. You can take two or couple more if you want, but think how much you’re packing in your backpack.
- underwear, swimwear, socks, scarf
- flip-flops are usefull if you come across a hostel that has dirty showers
Everything in reasonable quantities! You won’t need everything. The more you pack the more your backpack will weigh.
11. Other
- watch and read other travel stories on the internet for more information, tips and inspiration: blogs, Youtube, sites
- ask family, friens, acquintances of their travels. Maybe they have something cool to inspire you on your trip
- make your bank aware that you’re going abroad, that they won’t think your card is stolen and close it
- it would be good if you’d take good walks before your trip that your legs will become used to walking and that your health would be good when you’re out there
- remember that in interrail/eurail passes not all the trains are covered with it, like night trains and private railroads
- if you’re going coach surfing, you might take something small with you to give the host, for example candy from your country or a small keychain
- meeting old international friends is a cool idea, and maybe they can help you in their home countries somehow. Remember to communicate with them in a good time before the trip.

Feel free to add things if I forgot :)

When he finally concedes to take a honeymoon, months after the spur-of-the-moment ceremony Donna officiated in Jody’s driveway, Baby’s hood doubling as an altar, Dean’s only criterion is to get Cas alone. He’s dismissed every one of Sam’s suggested itineraries, and Cas doesn’t expect breakfast in bed or rooftop jacuzzis or al fresco dinners for two. But as the one-year mark creeps up along with the heat of summer, guilt gnaws at Dean like termites.

He comes up with the idea watching milk splash onto his corn flakes. Cas had recorded that documentary about supervolcanos and Dean’s always wanted to see a geyser. By the time he rinses his bowl, he’s checking down a mental packing list (boots, sunglasses, camera) and tells Sam, when he lumbers in for coffee, that he and Cas are taking a trip for a few days. Sam doesn’t ask for details but drinks his coffee through a smirk.

Cas doesn’t question him when Dean tells him to get his coat mid-afternoon. He places his book text-down on the nightstand and follows Dean to the garage. Dean points to a map and they head northwest, a single suitcase in the trunk.

Yellowstone is a thirteen-hour drive. Cas takes the overnight shift and Dean comes to in the parking lot of a Super 8. The sun is coming up. They get a King-size room for three nights and a bottle of champagne from the liquor store in town. After stuffing himself on a country fried steak and eggs, Dean puts out the “do not disturb” sign and pulls Cas into bed. The park will be there tomorrow. 

He burns to memory the taste of champagne on Cas’s lips.

Quick Packing List for Protesting

For every 3 hours you’ll be there:

  • 1 granola bar (or protein bar)
  • 1 fruit (or fruit serving)
  • 12 oz water (freeze it the night before; try to get a spout/athletic bottle)

For every 5 hours you’ll be there:

  • 1 sandwich (or any “meal” you can eat with one hand)
  • Emergency bathroom supplies (a funnel to pee with, extra menstrual supplies, tissues/toilet paper, wet wipes, etc. - whatever you may need if there are no bathrooms available)

Assume you’ll be there at least 50% longer than you expect.

Other suggested items:

  • Umbrella (either for heat, or protection against pepper spray)
  • Milk (to wash your eyes out if you get pepper-sprayed - remember to wash out your eyebrows, too)
  • Thick Jacket (pad yourself against bruising)
  • Scarf or Bandana (in case it gets cold, or for shade if it gets warm, or to protect the rest of your face from pepper-spray)
  • Those little art sets people buy as last minute gifts for kids, these are really versatile for sign-making (multiple mediums = can be used on multiple surfaces/types of posters)
  • Wrist braces or cotton bandages (makes holding up signs for long periods of time easier, and can protect your wrists from handcuff/ziptie bruising if you get “detained”)

If you know someone who wants to protest, tag them.

What they don’t tell you you’ll need in college (but you totally do)
  1. Tupperware
  2. A good laptop case
  3. Materials for whatever craft/hobby you enjoy
  4. A mattress heater
  5. A backpack for school AND a cute purse for going out
  6. Office supplies (like scissors, glue, tape, post it notes)
  7. Quaters
  8. A mug (or a few)
  9. Paper towels for your room
  10. A really good pair of headphones (I promise its worth the money)
  11. Copies (or originals) of all of your important documents… birth certificate, passport, social security card, bank account info
  12. Gym shoes
  13. Skype and a good webcam
  14. Extra chargers for everything
  15. A keychain/lanyard/things to carry your key and OneCard in
  16. Closet and drawer organizer
  17. A big wall calendar
  18. Device to play video games
  19. At least one fancy(ish) outfit
  20. Your favorite candy/food/thing you can only get in your home town
If you make a packing list before you go on a trip, review and edit the list when you return from your trip then save it. Over time, you'll be able to pack more efficiently.

I’ve been doing this with business trips and vacations for a couple of years.  I now have a few different packing lists that I can pull up whenever needed.  Saves me time and space when packing.

Packing, packing, & more packing!

Hey guys!

Since there’s less than 2 weeks until I leave for my 3rd, yes 3rd, Disney College Program in Disneyland, I figured I should start my planning/packing list. Now being through this twice before, you can pretty much call me a pro at packing and moving across the country. 

When I pack, I make 2 definitive lists: 1 of things I need to bring with me, and one of things I can buy when I get there.

If you’re flying, remember, most airlines allow one free bag (Southwest allows two, so I always fly with them) and you get one small carry on bag and a personal bag (purse, backpack - I use a backpack simply for the fact that it’s a bit bigger and way easier to carry). 

SpaceBags are your absolute best friend. Since I dorm at school, I already have bedding, pillows, blankets, bath towels, ect… So rather than spending a ton of money buying more, I SpaceBag as much as I possibly can, and trust me, it’s so worth the $20 it cost for a box of 12 SpaceBags at your local CostCo/Sam’s Club. Just remember, if you’re planning on flying, make sure none of your bags are over 50lbs, or you will be charged extra, so make sure you weigh your suitcase when you’re finished packing.

Okay now, on to the lists. Remember, you will be wearing your costume 5/6 days a week, so you don’t need to bring a ton of clothes. YOU WON’T WEAR THEM, trust me. It’s not worth all the extra space.

That being said, here’s my master list/rules of thumb for certain things.

List 1: Things to Bring

  • ID
  • Wallet
  • Money (I bring at least $300 to get me through the first few weeks)
  • Medicine/birth control
  • Insurance card
  • Medical paperwork, if needed
  • DORMS paperwork
  • Phone/charger
  • 5 shirts
  • 5 shorts
  • 2 pairs of jeans (nights can get chilly at times)
  • 5/6 camisoles/undershirts (for your costume)
  • Plenty of underwear. I usually bring enough to last me 2 weeks (14 pairs - in case I don’t have time to do laundry)
  • 7/8 pairs of non work socks
  • ½ pairs of dress pants/slacks or a pencil skirt (for Traditions & class)
  • Girls, AT LEAST a weeks worth of bras. If you’re working outside and sweating a lot, you’re gonna want to have enough to change everyday, but if you work indoors (like me) I wear mine 2 days because I’m not getting sweaty/dirty - I wear sports bras to work because they’re much more comfortable, and don’t show under my costume.
  • Bedding, if you have it. Bedspread & sheets (I have twin XL and they fit perfect)
  • Contacts/glasses
  • Retainer
  • ½ hoodies
  • 1 jacket
  • ½ pairs of comfy sneakers for walking around the parks
  • Flip flops
  • Dress shoes (for Traditions & Celebration)
  • Nice dress (for Celebration)
  • Cardigan (to wear over your business casual clothes, the hotel conference rooms where classes are held are always freezing)
  • Bathing suit
  • Pajamas
  • Workout clothes, if needed. Carnegie does have a small gym.
  • Jewelry (simple and small, appropriate for work/class)
  • Makeup (neutrals)
  • Straightener/curling iron
  • Blowdryer

List 2: What to Buy

  • Socks for work (you’ll find out what kind you need at Traditions)
  • Shampoo/conditioner
  • Lotion
  • Body wash
  • Deodorant
  • Face wash
  • Pads/tampons
  • Condoms 
  • Storage bins
  • Clorox wipes
  • Bathroom/kitchen cleaner
  • Tissues
  • First-aid kit
  • Paper towels
  • Shower curtain
  • Popcorn bowl
  • Bath mat
  • Shower caddy that hangs in the shower
  • Laundry soap
  • Fabric softener
  • Hamper
  • Hangers
  • Napkins
  • Bobby pins/hair ties
  • Trash bags
  • Lunch box
  • Toothbrush/toothpaste
  • Mouthwash
  • Razors
  • Tupperware
  • Ziplock bags

Optional things to bring/buy, but make sure you talk to your roommates!

  • TV
  • DVD player
  • Gaming system
  • White board calendar to keep track of everyone’s schedules
  • Laptop/charger
  • iPod dock with alarm clock (I use mine everyday)
  • Oven mitts/pot holders
  • Kitchen towels
  • Camera/charger
  • Batteries

I think that’s all for now, hope this helps you guys! Disney here we come!
