Well, all of my shopping is done! I spent Friday, Saturday and part of today (Sunday) hopping all over town and buying all of the necessities. It was great because it’s tax-free holiday. I wanted to take full advantage. There are still some things I’ll have to order online or get later, but I got most of what I needed.
My mother put together a nice notebook for me which she organized into sections. I then made a list of items I needed for each section. This was really helpful when it came to building shopping lists. Here are the sections in the notebook:
- Hair products
- Face products
- Body & Bath
- Household items
- School stuff
- Personal items (including documents like passport, tickets, money, purse, etc.)
It was a good way to organize things for packing so that I don’t forget anything! We will be doing a “packing practice” before I leave so that there are no unpleasant surprises at the last minute.
Departure Day is almost here…I still can’t believe how fast time is suddenly moving…
