It begins. The back-to-school shopping madness begins. I hope it’s begun for you too. The summer really went by fast, didn’t it? Now I’m a big fan of the general packing-for-college rule, which is to pack everything you think you need, then only take half. Unfortunately, you often leave behind things that you actually need (or you forget about them all together). So here are 10 things that you probably forgot to bring with you to college. Because your room is always messy and full, but you still don’t have everything you need.

1. Dish Soap
