So, you're leaving home and beginning a new life. It's time to pack everything you own and prepare to move it, right? Wrong. You are moving from an apartment or house to a single room — a single room you will likely share with someone else. You're moving from your previously permanent home to a place where you will live for only nine or ten months out of the year. Keeping this in mind, you should only take what you will need, will really use, and can transport back and forth several times over the next few years.
