12 things you DON'T need to take to uni

With A-Level results right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about packing up bedrooms into boxes and trips to IKEA for towels and tupperware. There’s plenty of info about the obvious things to take to university: cutlery, a duvet, a pack of cards; but its all too common for an excited fresher to over pack. Seriously, nobody needs a twelve-piece dinner set taking up all their cupboard space, or eight toasters spread across the kitchen counters. Here’s some things you’re probably better off not trying to squeeze into a suitcase. • Food. This one probably goes without saying, but just get it when you get there. It’s unnecessary space taken up in the car and most halls have a Tesco Express, Sainsburys Local or the likes around the corner from them. • Tea towels. No flat needs sixteen tea towels. Buy a couple as a flat when you get there. The ones that get thrown to the bottom of the pile and never used will get crusty and disgusting. • Various kitchen tools like spatulas, whisks and cheese graters that aren’t used that often. Unless your flat are all planning on whisking, grating or spreading at the same time, they can be shared. • A boxed dinner set. Unless you’re planning on partaking in Come Dine With Me. Just go to IKEA, grab two bowls and two plates, two forks, two knives, two spoons so one can be in the wash while you eat with the other.
