    You can get them cheaper in Wilkinson

    lol, I can be tight sometimes. I'm starting to get excited about going. It's even worse when you take a year off!

    how many pairs of shoes do you need?

    this is more for girls... i asked my brother who said 'no more than 3, and that's if you need football boots as well as trainers and going-out shoes'

    oh, and girls what do you take in terms of clothes? did you have too many or did you regret leaving anything behind?

    Maybe not quite a girl but I have the same shopping and fashion habits as one so....

    I'm taking 2 pairs of trainers, 2 pairs of nice shoes, 1/2 pairs of nice but not nice enough to go out in shoes and other special shoes (e.g. football boots, running trainers etc...). I'm going to have to trim down the wardrobe in order to fit my clothes in though. They tell me that they provide a "single-ordinary wardrobe"?!? :confused: Think I'm going to have to interpret that as me having very little space for clothes.

    I took 3 pairs of trainers, 2 for everyday wear and one for sports, 2 pairs flip flops, 1 pair boots, 1 pair going out shoes, and one pair smart concert shoes. I aquired another pair of trainers and 2 more pairs of flip flops whilst there. I took way too many clothes and sent some home in the holidays. I did buy/aquire a lot of society clothing though because I'm in quite a few societies.

    take as many as you can fit in the car, ou never know when a particular random pair of shoes you never where will come in handy ;0). I definately overpacked on shoes last year but i will still take the same ammount again. heres my defintite lsit

    2 pairs of flatsuede boots (one black, one cream) so, so useful
    dressy boots
    1 or 2 pairs of black strappy shoes
    various flip flops
    trainers (sporty pair and a not so sporty pair)
    random others (mainly summery shoes) that can go form day to night
    a pair of plain shoes that i can walk the 3 miles to uni, through mud in when it rains
    ...... ahhhhhh that was my list of cutting down, its never going to all go in ;0)

    Thats a good idea I ment to mention but forgot. If you're not sure how big your room will be and so don't know how much to pack, take as much as will go in the car. If it dosn't all fit just get your parents to take it back.

    It's horrible mate, half of my best clothes ended up folded in a big deep draw or in a suitcase under my bed You need all the clothes aswell, unless you want to be at the laundrette all the time..

    you can be an honoury girl sweetie

    i'm not even onto what clothes i'm taking, and i know i'm going to buy loads more jumpers when i get up there. at home i quite easily fill 2 double wardrobes and have loads of drawers full of clothes... and there's no way i could leave any of my jeans or combats (pretty essential) and i do need all my little skirts for going out in... and then what to take in terms of formal dresses (i have about 3.. but it seems silly to take all of them each term)
