To-do list for MBA survival

I'll be starting a full-time MBA program this fall. What can I do now to make that experience easier?

I'm currently employed and intend to remain so until shortly before classes begin, but I want to do whatever I can now to set myself up for success and minimize stress while working on my degree. I've tentatively broken this down into two categories:
(1) academic preparation -- I've assembled materials to review aspects of finance and economics that have gotten rusty, and I'll intersperse that reading with recent publications on leadership strategy.
(2) home/logistics -- I don't need to move, but I should probably bring all the crap in my basement to Goodwill and reclaim my table from the plants so I have a reasonable study space.
What have I missed? What have I gotten wrong? If left undirected, I'm afraid that I'll do silly things like purchase a two-year supply of paper towels so I never have to stop at the store after class.
