    CGA Cadet Handbook

    The 2009 Cadet handbook (haven't you memorized it by now? :wink: states you bring toiletries; soap, shampoo, toothpaste, shaving gear...etc.
    Last year one of the issued items was a caddy-type carry all to lug your stuff to the showers. And a very nice robe.
    Tip: Suave makes a shampoo/body wash combo, all in one bottle. Save space.

    It's been said before but always bears repeating Pack only what's on the list You may second-guess yourself or think you need extra stuff, you won't. Son fit everything in his backpack and traveled light.

    Good luck to you and all the Class of 2013. :smile:

    I bought a backpack and everything fits in it as well. I went to Walmart and found 3-in-1 shampoo :) Its kids shampoo but hey, if it cuts down on time, I dont care if it is for babies. Im bringing some in a travel size bottle and my mom is putting the actual bottle in the first care package she is sending me :smile: So now my questions is, Are they giving us the caddy for the showers or should we buy our own?
