College Packing List, DRD Style

For all you hyper-organized college students out there like me, going off to college means making packing lists.

With the school year starting up in the next few weeks, it's time to get organized. In addition to bed risers, bookends and Bananagrams, don't forget to pack in some gear to get you cooking and eating well. Whether you live in a dorm room with only a microwave and cereal bowl, or have upgraded to a living situation with a full on kitchen - stove and all - here are some ideas to bring (and stuff in your mini-fridge) when you head back to school.

But these are just a couple of my favorites. What's going on your packing list?

sugar packets
Cheerios and Grapenuts
salt and pepper
soy sauce
Kashi TLC crackers (I go through about a box of these a week)
Annie's Microwavable Mac & Cheese
peanut butter
cheddar cheese
ginger snap cookies

small cutting board
paring knife
can opener
measuring spoons/cups
tupper ware
french press (easier than a coffee maker)
shot glasses
cereal bowls
sponge and soap
electric kettle
bottle opener/wine opener
