How to Pack for College: a College Packing List
On average, dorm rooms are around 12’ x 19’. Split that space by two people and you don’t have much room for extra stuff. In most cases that means leaving things behind, and if you’re like me, choosing between the things you’ll bring with you and the things you’ll keep at home isn’t easy.

We mentioned a fun Military Appreciation-related contest coming up soon, and the time has arrived! Yesterday we launched the Military Appreciation Photo Contest on U-Pack’s Facebook page!
Just submit a snapshot of yourself with your favorite military service member (in uniform), and once it’s approved, Facebookers can vote on the pic they like best. The photo with the most “likes,” when May 31st at 12:00 PM rolls around, wins. So get all of your friends and family to vote!

It’s Flashback Friday! Each week we take a look back at posts that readers have found helpful in the past. Since we're celebrating Military Appreciation Month in May, we’ll be spending a lot of time on all things military related throughout the month. Today’s post – DITY Move – is one from way back (it was first posted in 2008). We've made a few updates to make the information current, and I think you'll find it very helpful, especially if you're planning a DITY move soon. Happy Friday!

Fourteen years ago, Congress designated May as the month for Americans to recognize and honor all of the men and women who have so bravely served our country – past, present and future. And that honor is certainly deserved.
Here at U-Pack, we want to raise awareness about the month and recognize service members, veterans and their families. Thank you. Thank you for your service, your sacrifice and your commitment – it does not go unnoticed.
