Perfect for those late night study sessions. Depending on your taste, each lamp design listed, adds their own flare to your room.
2. VANITY MIRROR
All my girls know, this is a must have when shopping for college. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have my vanity.
I love a good rug. It's the easiest way to push your room from basic to stylish. Try to stay way from any light colored rugs, they tend to get dirty way too easily and aren't always washer friendly.
4. WALL DÉCOR
Wall decor are the best ways to add your own flare. From neon lights to a wall canvas. They turn a once boring space, into your personal sanctuary.
NEON LIGHT/ LED LIGHTS
Give your bed a little style look with some throw pillows, just try not to go over board. You're gonna start to hate having that many pillows on your bed those night when your so tired and just wanna jump in bed.
These are perfect for storage and just a place to sit. Especially when you have all your friends in your room all at once.
These products will forever come in handy throughout your entire college experience. All these products will always be a need and a must have on your college shopping list.
One of my favorite buys from Amazon. I hate sweeping and this cuts the effort your putting in, in half.
8. ALL PURPOSE CLEANER
You're gonna always be cleaning so why not just have one product that does it all. Getting an all purpose cleaner is the perfect solution.
Needless to say you this is a must, if you get nothing else you most definitely need this. I always preferred non-slip velvet hangers but the choice is up to you.
10. STORAGE BINS
Storage bins are the best way to keep everything organized and Amazon has great package deals when it comes to these.
11. DESK/WALL ORGANIZERS
Avoid having clutter all over your desk. A clear space is a clear mind.
Staying on top of long list of everything you have to do is very stressful. I didn't buy myself one of these when I initially went dorm shopping. Don't be like me. This is the easiest and most accessible way to stay on top of your assignments and responsibilities.
13. LONG CHARGER
You'll be surprised how handy this will come in. It is the worst thing when your in bed and your charger isn't long enough to stretch. I'm always on my phone so this was very annoying for me. Save yourself some trouble and add this to your list
14. BLUETOOTH SPEAKER
I remember buying two speakers before leaving for college. If one died, I always had a backup. I couldn't live without a speaker. They come in handy when you just want to chilling and vibe in your room.
15. STEP STOOL
Don't be the person who's too short and just tried to jump on their tall bed. Get a step stool and save a life. These especially work great for getting on that top shelf in the closet.
16. SHEETS SETS
Even if you don't wanna get fancy, you're gonna need at least 3 sheet sets
17. TRASH BIN
Let's be honest, you just need this. So get it.
