Bath Must Haves For College
This velcro towel body wrap! No more worrying about holding your shower caddy, your keys, and your towel up while going from the showers to your room.
This toiletry bag is perfect to hold all of your skincare items, toothbrush & toothpaste when you have to get ready in a shared space. It will keep all your products organized and make for easy storing when not in use!
A plastic shower tote is something that you really can’t go without in the dorms. A lot of people end up buying the mesh bags, but I personally think the plastic ones are better and easier to keep clean. The mesh style tends to stay damp for hours and can build up mold if you don’t keep it clean, and let’s be honest, how many college kids put cleaning their shower tote on the top of their priority list??
These shower shoes. They come with drainage holes to keep the water from pooling up, and if you think you don’t need a comfortable pair of shower shoes- you’re wrong! Almost nothing is worse than wearing tough plastic in between your toes every time you go take a shower.
Bedding Must Haves For College
Pair the duvet cover above with these boho throw pillow covers + pillow insert. Pillow inserts are seriously the best way to go in the long run. Only buying covers instead of new full pillows saves you money as your style changes and grows. Make sure the inserts are the right size for the pillow covers you choose!
These pillow covers are also an adorable option for bedding decor.
This hypoallergenic 18-inch, Twin XL mattress topper. Those mattresses at school are NOT comfortable, so adding your own topper adds a level of comfort (and sanitation) that you just can’t pass up.
Kitchen Must Haves For College
This Keurig mini single-serve coffee maker comes in 5 colors and is perfect for college students.
This blender with a travel bottle! This is exactly what you need if you have a limited time between classes and need a smoothie to-go to hold you over before lunch.
This 59-piece college kitchen set comes with utensils, pots, pans, a strainer, Tupperware and silverware.
This mini-fridge comes in 3 colors and is perfect for college students, and it’s pretty stylish as far as mini-fridges go.
This is amazon’s choice for microwaves. The microwave on your floor will probably be a disgusting mess most of the time, so I highly recommend having your own!

This faux plant and vase arrangement, I’m actually obsessed.
These LED lights are 16.4 ft long and come equipped with a remote and color-changing tape

Dorm Room Must Haves For College
If you invest in ANYTHING for your dorm room, it should be this mirror. You will definitely need a full-length mirror, but to have an extra space to help store small items will be crucial. It’ll help you avoid clutter on your desk and dresser.

This vanity mirror is a desktop essential. It includes different magnifying mirrors and lighting to make for easy getting ready in less space!

This cute fan is definitely a must have. If you aren’t sure whether you will be able to control your room’s temperature, you will definitely want to have a fan in there.
School Supplies Must Haves For College
This super popular backpack is a definite must have. These backpacks are durable and cute, so it makes sense why they’re so popular! They also come in a ton of colors.
This pencil kit to keep in your backpack to keep all your pens, pencils and highlighters organized!
This one is important: get yourself a little bag (this one is literally only $6) to keep in your backpack at all times in case of emergencies. Put gum, hair ties, bobby pins, tampons, face wipes, a tide-to-go stick, travel deodorant, etc. This bathroom emergency kit saved me more than once, and it’s something I carried into adulthood with me!
This kit for binder clips, push pins, and paperclips! Cute organization = straight A’s right?

These laundry bins have durable handles to make for easy carrying to and from the laundry room. They also have drawstrings to keep your clothing items private while walking to and from, and they’re also waterproof!
This cleaning caddy to hold & store all your cleaning supplies! Stash some microfiber cloths, a multipurpose cleaner, and some carpet freshener in here to make for easy tidying up.
A cheap (but good) vacuum to help keep the floor clean. This one is amazon’s choice and is less than $30. Can’t beat it.
