College Dorm Must Haves and Essentials

As students pack to head back to campus, here are some must haves to add to your dorm shopping list.

Dorm beds are twin XL (extra long) so you'll need new sheets and blankets. 

Target is one of the best places to shop for twin XL college bedding. Check out the jersey knit sheet sets.

College freshman often live in dorms with shared bathrooms. So get a waterproof carrier for toting your toiletries.

Closet space can be tight, so slim clothes hangers are must.

Optimize storage space with under-the-bed containers.

Keep dorm air as clean as possible with an air purifier.

A clothes drying rack is also a good idea since dorm dryers can destroy delicate clothing.

Command hooks are a must have for hanging up decorations.

Mini fridge for late-night snacks, assuming your dorms allows refrigerators in rooms.

An area rug will help make a dorm room feel cozier.
