Graduation is finally here, and it is time to step into the first phase of adulthood. It is also time to purge all extraneous items that you will no longer need post-college. We understand that you have grown close to that foam finger or lucky blanket, but your college days are officially behind you, and you must now make some tough decisions. As you sift through your belongings, do not hesitate to throw out these five items.
If you ever lived on campus, you probably had the fortunate experience of community showers, in which you had to wear shower slippers. No matter why you found it necessary to keep those for four years, you can get rid of them now. There is a low chance that you’ll need to wear shower shoes again and if so, buy new ones.
Twin XL Sheets
Dorm rooms are notorious for the twin XL beds. These beds are only popular in college dorm rooms, so say can officially say goodbye to your twin XL sheet set. Granted, you should probably wait until you replace it before you throw it away, but you can rest assured that you will never need a twin XL sheet set again.
The fracket is the jacket people keep for warmth and nothing else. It is something you do not mind spilling stuff on and the one you wear to parties with no regard to what happens to it. Your trusty fracket has served you well, but it is time to let it go. Unless it has some sentimental value, this item can be one of the first to go.
Wall posters and paper decorations are a college thing. You can kiss these posters goodbye now that you are entering the adult world. For the posters that you may have gotten signed by college athletes or other notable colleagues, you can keep those. Consider framing posters you plan to save to avoid damage.
Unless you can use them as a point of reference as you grow in your profession, you can throw away those bulky textbooks. Your best chance of ever making a return on that investment was when you were on campus. If you failed to sell your unwanted textbooks to an underclassman, consider giving them away or donating them to your local library.
