Overspending on college necessities is a significant problem. Fortunately, most guys aren’t as concerned about matching throw pillows (what?) as women are. And, you may never be. But, that doesn’t mean you don’t need to pick up a few things for your dorm. However, you’ve still got to consider the limited amount of space you have to work with. A good rule of thumb is that if it can’t fit inside a Buick – it’s too much.
Although you will need toiletries, snacks, school supplies and sheets, this list focuses on the few necessities that you may not have considered. Give each of these a good look before you dismiss them – they’re all meant to make your dorm life simpler and safer. Then, make sure you don’t forget to stock up on laundry supplies and toothpaste.
