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:
Foam Mattress Topper

Going away to college is an exciting time in your life. Whether you are moving to a dorm room or off-campus apartment, you will want to take certain essentials with you – but to save space, you should leave behind anything you won’t really need. When in doubt, you can always go without it at first. Then if you decide you do need something, just get it once you arrive at your new place. You can either buy it locally or order it on Amazon.
