Laundry Cheat Sheet for Your College-Bound Graduate
My son is off to college in the Fall and we’ve been talking about what he he needs while living away at college. And shopping for dorm necessities.
I must admit I was not so ready for all of this. I am proud beyond measure of this young man who is hardworking, kind and loving. He constantly amazes me with his special gifts and talents, and his concern and care for others. He is ready for college and I am so thankful for that, but I will be so terribly sad to not have him with me every day.
I don’t know where the time has gone. I remember when he was a baby, and I was exhausted and feeling sorry for myself, another mother said to me, “Remember the days are long but the years are short.” That has always stuck with me.
It is a short time when you realize that you may only have 18 summers with your children living full-time at home. So that is what we have had and now I can look back and honestly say that that was the shortest time imaginable. I wish I could have 18 more years.
While I was reminiscing, my son was moving on, picking out items and making his list.
At the top of the list were the basics, like bedding and bath towels.
Now with all these amazing linens he will need to know how to care for them.
So I made him a little Laundry Cheat Sheet. He can keep this handy while at college to know exactly how to care for all of his bedding, towels and clothes as well.
I am sharing this little cheat sheet with you, too. Know a graduate that will need this when s/he leaves home soon? Just download a copy of my Laundry Cheat Sheet and print to share with him or her.
My son is heading out of state for college. He is ready for an adventure and to give life a go on his own. I love his willingness to step out there and take on this opportunity. I just need to confirm that he knows how to do his own laundry, now. Heh.
