Tips for College Packing Using Collegeboxes

If you’re overwhelmed with everything you have, it might be a good time to clean out your closet. This will allow you to pack quickly and ensure you only pack what you will use.

Wondering what fits in a Collegebox? Our boxes were designed to fit many items:

  • Clothing
  • Bedding
  • Towels
  • Trash can
  • Office Supplies
  • Textbooks

One box can fit seven pairs of jeans, ten t-shirts, three sweatshirts, bedding, towels, AND a trash can. The key is to make use of your space.

Maximize space by filling the box up to the crease at the top, as shown in the picture on the left below. Don’t go over the crease line; this allows the flaps to come together and be securely taped shut.

Pro Tip:

For instance, remember to keep in mind the amount you are packing. Make sure to keep the weight of items packed under 70 pounds.
