So you’re heading off to college! Nervous? Don’t panic! Setting up a home away from home is easy if you just follow a checklist. Look for space-saving items that can serve double duty if you can. (Think like a minimalist!) But first, be sure to find out ahead of time what your school provides, what you should bring, and what’s not allowed. If you know your roommate, it would be a good idea to find out which things they’re planning on bringing to avoid unnecessary duplicates. Here is a list of basic items that will make your new space organized and comfortable. Click the links for suggested items to buy on Amazon:
