    I'm putting toiletries/household items in boxes, then my clothes, bedding and towels in bin liners. I've no idea how it's all gonna fit in the car boot and on two seats though...but I'll worry about that when it comes to it in the cold next Thursday morning lol.

    It doesn't/won't. When my brother went Portsmouth (and I live in West London so you can imagine the distance and time.....) we had to make multiple trips - such a long way and he didn't take much (he decided to buy a few bits and bobs over there)....... And you can forget about putting stuff on the parcel shelf, it will adversely effect rear visibility.

    One suitcase stuffed full of clothes, four sturdy Saisbury's bags packed full of books, a rucksack containing all my computer stuff including my laptop, three boxes of stuff for kitchen/bathroom etc. and then I fill my laundry bag with all kinds of stuff that doesn't fit anywhere else or has no category (board games, fancy dress etc). Also one sturdy box of tinned food (usually lasts me all term so I don't have to carry nasty heavy tins) and one of dried and fresh. And my fridge.

    This year I'm taking my backpacking rucksack for my trips to Aldi/Iceland. I don't care how stupid I look.

    Nope I haven't either and I move into uni on the 16th!! hehe

    It's more fun leaving things till the last minute I think! Will probably do my packing the night before I leave.

    You just HAVE to get a picture of the car when fully loaded and post it here!! Bet it will be busting at the seems!! hehe

    When I moved into my last house I had to take 5 trips in my car to move all my stuff (all packed into one room in a flat!!). Luckily that house was only about 15 miles away. God knows how i'm gonna move everything into uni in one trip!!
