What are some college dorm room must haves?

I'm starting school in the fall and just wanted to know some things necessary for a comfortable dorm life. There aren't any communal bathrooms so I shouldn't worry about buying a bath kit, unless I should. I'm a little overwhelmed and I do not want to over shop or under shop for dorm necessities. #college #college-life #freshmen

My daughter is a college freshman. Overall I would say dorm essentials would include whatever you need to feel comfortable away from home. Including phone chargers, several sets of towels and sheets (depending on how often your will do laundry, usually a week's worth), comfortable throws, blankets, and pillows.

Comfortable dorm life is about keeping it simple!


Have two sets of sheets so you have a back up in case you need it without going over board.


Don't buy a shower kit but start making a list of the things you use on a daily basis such as toothpaste, shampoo, etc. The essentials.will get the job done without overdoing it.


Start making lists of the things you need to have in your room and things you use all the time at home.


Consider investing in a fridge and a microwave. It comes in handy when the weather is bad and you can't go out to get food or when you're on the run and have enough time for a hot pocket.


Hope this helps!

All great advice given. Is the bed already lifted? If not, you might want to get some blocks or something to lift the bed higher off the ground. Why you might ask?! You can use under the bed as storage without having to get on your stomach. Plus, you might be able to fit the dresser and/or other storage containers under it including the mini-fridge. I think a lot of the items you'll need or want depends on how big or small your dorm room is. It will also depend on if you have a roommate or not. My dorm at the University of AZ was small and my roommate and I had to get creative on the storage part.
