My daughter will be a freshman in college this fall. We have already purchased the comforter, lamp, trash can, etc. on a whirlwind shopping trip with her future roommate and her mom. (Can you believe we shopped at a center that had Target, Bed, Bath and Beyond, and Marshalls in one block with Hobby Lobby across the street ?!) I have to say, it was a lot of fun and they are definitely going to brighten up that drab little cinder block box! Here's a peek at the hoard at our house.... They didn't make memory foam mattress toppers for twin XL beds when I went to college!
I have also put together a tub of little items to make the first weeks away from home a little easier. Here's what I am including:
A box of Band-aids
Kleenex go packs
Sewing Kit (pretty sure that won't be opened....)
Travel size anti-antiperspirant
Sticky note cube
Thank you notes (well she won't be able to say she didn't have any)
a cute container of paperclips, tacks, etc.
and....a roll of duck tape with the college logo
Let me know if you think of something that I left out!
I found this two part tote at Target. I have organized the items into either "first aid" or "office supplies" in the two compartments. (That's as organized as I get!)
My daughter is away this week, working at a camp for young adults with special needs. Since I am missing her (already), I spent way too long looking at dorm decorating pictures on HGTV Rate My Space. I decided to add some colored string, ribbon, scrap book paper, fabric storage cubes, etc. so that my daughter and her roommate can do some more customizing if they wish to. I also
made this printable in the colors that my daughter is using. If you would like a copy, you can print it HERE. You will need to trim it if you want to put it in an 8 X 10 frame.
And for those of you who are lucky enough to be getting younger kids ready for school...
