US customs forms questions

Jump to last reply

I'm flying LHR to SFO in a few weeks after five months of studying abroad in London and am trying to figure out exactly what will be required when it comes to declaring items to customs, but after what's probably too much time spent googling, haven't found satisfactory answers.

I'll be bringing home things such as souvenirs for family and friends and clothes and books I've picked up here, which should all add up to less than $800.

When I list the items on the customs form, would it be sufficient to just group like items and total amounts (e.g. clothing, books, souvenirs, etc.), or do I actually need to list each individual item?
I plan to make a list of everything I've bought here and am taking back with me regardless, but it seems a little excessive to copy that list over to what could very well end up being near ten forms just to list all the little souvenirs I've picked up rather than grouping them all into one category.

I've lost track of some of my receipts (mostly from Primark and Waterstones) or simply never received one after purchasing books, clothes, etc., from outdoor markets. Could this cause any problems?

I'm probably stressing a little more than necessary, but the last time I went through customs coming home from Europe was five years ago and I was travelling with my mom, so she took care of everything, and I want to try to make sure it's as hassle-free as possible this time so I can get to my family as quickly/easily as possible.

Thanks!
