The Back To College Survival Kit

With school on its way around the corner, it is that time of year again! Time to start preparing and I mean prepare for everything. So that is why you need to get yourself a cute little bag and make your own ‘Back to College Survival Kit’. Have you ever been in class with annoying flickering and buzzing fluorescent lights? You know the ones you don’t notice at first but as soon as you do, they drown out the sound of the professor’s voice and kick on that dreaded headache. Or have you ever tried catching a few more z’s before class and found yourself running a little too late to make your much needed pick me up or simple snack? I know I have on more than one occasion, and I’m sure you have too! No one is perfect after all. But with a little survival kit tucked away in your bag you can be ready for almost any curve ball life throws your way. I put together a small survival kit last year and have tweaked the contents to have me prepared for pretty much anything from hair disaster to a monster headache and even that longer than expected study session snack. This little survival kit will come in handy at the most unexpected times. Although, it may sit for days or weeks untouched, but when you finally have to reach for it, you will be thanking yourself!

This little survival kit is super easy and cheap to put together, I’m sure most of it, you have around your house or in your purse right now. This kit is very versatile, it can be changed easily and doesn’t have to just be for the college backpack, it works wonders when tucked into your purse as well!  Plus if you are missing a few little things it’s the perfect excuse to do a little shopping. And who does love the travel section? Everything there is so tiny, compact and just plain and simply cute as can be! So with my ‘Back To College Survival Kit List’ head on over to your local travel section whether it be at Wal-mart, Shoppers Drug Mart or even the Mall and create one of your own.
