Segment: Packing tips for college

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The summer is coming to an end for everyone and now most college students are back in class, and they will be joining more than 21 million other students.

Will Dillon from the moving company Two Men and a Truck gives tips on the importance of packing light, especially in a small dorm room.

It's important to decrease the amount of clutter you have when packing to head back to school.

Dillion says that it is better to use boxes or  garbage bags instead of a luggage to pack your items. Typically a luggage can take up more space, and it is better to throw away the boxes and trash bags after unpacking them.

Don't forget to pack a first aid kit, cleaning supplies and laundry supplies.
