Nobody enjoys moving day, but it's a common part of life for many college students. Changes in roommates, budgets and class schedules often necessitate moving between apartments. Whether your living arrangements are changing because your roommate scored an international internship or the landlord raised your rent yet again, these essential packing hacks for students can make the move easier.
Use Your Vacuum
Fluffy items like pillows and comforters take up a lot of space in your moving boxes, so shrink them down by **** the air out of them with a vacuum. You can purchase specially designed vacuum bags, but why spend the money? Just fold your items, place them in a thick garbage bag and use one hand to seal the bag around the end of your vacuum cleaner's hose attachment. Then suck out the air and secure with a rubber band.
Set Aside Essentials
