Excited about your forthcoming college year? Get ready for a comfortable and fruitful stay at your university, school, or college by making sure you’ve shopped for all the right gear and belongings. Remember, your college dorm room is your personal space and you can make it as comfortable and cheerful as possible to ensure you make the most of your experience in college. Before you begin your shopping, make a list of the items you’ll need. Let’s take a look at some of the must-haves, in addition to your clothes and books, for your college stay.

Dorm Bedding
Getting your dorm bedding right is crucial for a comfortable stay. Make sure you include cheerful-looking and cozy pillows, duvets, bed sheets, blankets, rugs, and more. Ensuring your dorm bedding is completely in place will do away with the headache of hunting and shopping for it later in a new town. Pick dorm bedding that reflects your style and is sure to keep you cheerful and relaxed. There are a number of options, designs, and prints to choose from. Use fresh colors and comfortable fabric.

Room Accessories
There are a number of small items that you will need and that are easy to miss. Make sure you pack in an alarm clock, hangers for your clothes, first aid kit and your medicines, towels and other linen, study lamps, wall decorations like wall decals and pictures from your home, and your computer. Also make sure you shop for storage bins that let you house your books and belongings and keep the space in your dorm room clutter-free.

Cooking & Laundry
It’s also best to carry a few cooking utensils, kitchen items, and laundry items. Your utensils can be stored in the storage bins you bring along. Check the kind of dorm room you have. You may also want to pack in a refrigerator. Laundry items include detergents and dryer sheets.

Get your clothes, books, dorm bedding, storage bins, and other belongings in order. With the list mentioned here, you are ready to take on your new college adventure! If you are returning back to school, college, or university, you may want to add some of these belongings to your existing ones, or shop for fresh ones to give your dorm room a make-over.
