    If I am going to the Mir for the summer, what should be on my packing list? What stuff and how much stuff should I bring?

    Since your only allod one suitcase, I don’t think you have an issue! Just pack your clothing, towels, sheets etc… all toiletries buy there, and you can also buy pillow and blankets there

    The Yeshiva is very close to King’s Highway where you can shop for whatever you need.

    Toi,

    He’s probably starting, so he needs to know what to keep and what to throw out.

    My grandmother starts cleaning for Pesach as soon as Chanuka is over. (And the house ain’t that big.)

    Maybe blackhatwannabe is Doswin’s uncle.

    Most yeshiva bochurim have the same outfit summer and winter. The only difference is that winter wardrobe includes sweaters a coat and boots or galoshen (shoe rubbers).

    If you think you will be going swimming someplace include swimming trunks and if you play ball or intend to hike bring sneakers and basket ball shorts or cotton pants. For sleeping bring light pajamas or shorts…

    And if you think you will be hanging out in kikar tzion every night, you should bring some appropriate clothes for that as well.

    Don’t give him ideas. And its called crack square if you plan on “hanging out” there.

    It depends on how often you plan on washing them, and how often you plan on changing shirts!

    Like Popa pointed out, what you really need the most, is money.

    If you are only staying the summer, dont bother taking a coat. It generally only rains and gets cold from half way through Cheshvan until Purim time.

    Also, dont take seforim – not because you wont use em, but because they are cheaper there and its not worth paying extra to buy them in Chutz laaretz only to have to pay extra for baggage – and they are heavy to shlep.

    P.s Dont forget teffilin.
