MUST HAVE DORM ROOM SUPPLIES
If you have ever been to a dorm room you may already know that space is at a premium. There is not enough room for everything you think you will need. I place a huge value on things that are multitasker’s and give you some peace a quiet!
Below you will find products that will make your dorm life a little easier. Everything from ear plugs to sleeping bags.
Really any good quality laptop will do. I love apple for the anti-virus aspect and the IOS ecosphere.
A must have for many reasons. Pin notes to your room-mate, reminders, calendars, travel itineraries, syllabus’ and cute cat pictures.
Noise canceling headphones : Sometimes you just need some peace and quite. Maybe your new roomie’s taste in music sucks or maybe they snore? A good pair of head phones are a must.
Yes people steal stuff! All the time. It’s nice to have somewhere to put your valuables when you in class or away for spring break.
Don’t nobody want to see your nasty… Well maybe they do but have some dignity and cover up your “goodies.”
This is a definite must have. You need a place to keep your toiletries when in the nasty showers in the dorm.
Maybe you need to tell the pizza guy you’ll be right back OR Maybe you are having extra curricular activities, Ahem. You need a way to let your peeps know not to come in.
Cramming for a final in bed has never been easier. And being lazy and binge watching Netflix has never been more comfortable.
Laundry and Ironing: Having a sturdy and portable solution for laundry is a must! Yes you can take it all home on the weekends but you still need a way to transport it.
If you have the room than get this little guy. You will love having cold drinks and food when you’re pulling an all nighter.
Plugs are at a premium in most dorms. You may need to get two of these to have enough plug space.
If there was ever a time when you needed good sleep college is the time. It’s also the time where you will get the least sleep. That’s why having a comfortable bed is so important.
Why? Because dorms are incubators for nasty bacteria and viral infections. These wipes are not bleach based so they are safe for your clothing and most surfaces.
A door mat doesn’t seem like the first thing that comes to mind when you think of dorm room supplies. Just think of rainy day’s or hallway slip and slides.
Because, coffee. With this little guy you can brew coffee anywhere and everywhere.
Disposable plates, cups Ect.: Most dorms don’t have “kitchen” sinks to wash your dishes in. Having a hearty supply of disposable dishes will come in handy when you just have to have that hot pocket at 3 A.M.
But if you must wash some dishes you may as well have a dishwand. It makes it a little easier to not have to touch the dishes you may have left sitting for a month or two.
What the heck do you need a sleeping bag for? Essentially college is just one long sleepover. If you have guests sleeping over or you are sleeping over else where you will want a comfy sleeping bag. Also think about the movie nights out in the commons area!
If you don’t have access to the noise canceling head phones than pick up some good old-fashioned ear plugs.
Everybody and their mom is going to have bed risers. Why? Because under your bed is where you will store all your stuff. Having risers is the only way to ensure you’re going to have room to store all the essentials.
Sleep is vital. We all know that. But did you know that you will sleep more sound with our the distraction of light. Just make sure to set an alarm or you’ll sleep right through that English final.
Might as well have some cute and functional bedding. After all this is you first chance at “Adulting” so leave the unicorn bedding at home.
Not a necessity, but most of us want to check that we look good. I’d wait to see if your roommate has one before buying.
Seems like something your grandparents might have, right? Wrong. This is one of the most versatile pillows you can own. Reading in bed, friends over and need a seat? This pillow will do the trick.
Because you never know when a game of frisbee golf is going to get REAL!
