This is for all the moms out there sending your loved ones off to college! WE KNOW decorating and buying for a dorm room can be very costly and overwhelming, so we are here to help with tips and tricks for preparing to transition your baby into their new home!
The less you have, the better. Most adults think that a lot of college students spend a ton of time in their rooms, so they overload on supplies for their kids. Just get the basics; you don’t need that fancy closet organizer. Chances are there will be enough space without it! So when you’re shopping for dorm things, just get the necessities; and then if you get to your room and realize you need a few more items, further action can be taken. But, showing up with 100+ items and realizing your room is itty bitty small, can make you realize how much money you wasted on unnecessary items. Another mistake people make when buying dorm furniture, is that it probably won’t be re-used. At most colleges, you only live in a dorm once, so again, spend as minimal as you can. The amount of mattress toppers and perfectly good storage units I see thrown away in the dumpster is unbelievable! Spend your money wisely and only buy what is necessary.
