USA Shopping List of things to carry for students

It is always difficult to pack the things inside the luggage bag while traveling. Many of us get confused on the items to carry while traveling. I have gathered the list of things to carry to the USA keeping inside the luggage bag. I have visited several countries including Australia and the USA. From my experience, I have listed out the items that students need to pack while traveling to the United States.

I prepared this list of items to carry by researching with different people along with various blogs.
