Awesome! 5 Steps to be Campus Ready!

 

Getting ready for outfitting your first dorm or your first apartment can be daunting. I’ve interviewed some of the best retailers on what it takes to get campus ready and I’ve compiled the top 5 things here.

1. Make a list and check it twice! The curators at Bed Bath and Beyond have compiled some of the best lists to help you prepare to get campus ready. This list covers it all! Remember to check with your roommate, if you have one, to ensure you don’t bring duplicate items. Space is tight so you’ll want to make sure every inch is used wisely.

 

2. Create a Pinterest Board for Inspiration. We’ve created a board to help you get started. Keep this handy when you are out shopping by using the Pinterest App and you’ll always know what you had envisioned!

3. Don’t underestimate the power of your floor! The dorm floors will be cold, and overall icky. We have a lot of fun, inexpensive options that will warm your space and remove the “ick factor.” Here are some cool ideas to decorate your space.

4. Read this. Everyone thinks they know it all before they go to college, but you’ll wish you would have read this. Don’t learn the hard way! 1001 Things Every College Kid Needs to Know.

5. Ask for help. Ask your cousins, aunts, uncles, family friends, anyone who has been there what advice they would give. I can tell you the advice I was given was some of the best advice I could of ever found. Simple things like what to buy at the grocery store that’s healthy and easy, to what was the best time to hit the fitness center.

Lastly, Good Luck on your endeavors!
