6 Esstential Things You Never Knew You Needed For Your Dorm

Moving back into a dorm is one of the most stressful things in the world. There are a million big and little things you need including shower gel, toothbrushes, an iron, bed sheets, a TV, room décor, and more. There are also some things that you don’t think you need until you’ve already moved in. Below is a list of the top ten things that you didn’t know you needed for college.


1.  Keurig Coffee Maker

On most college campuses, there are plenty of Starbucks for you to go and grab a coffee. The problem with this is that Starbucks is ridiculously expensive and on a college budget it is hard to find even a dollar to buy a four dollar frappucino. This is why a coffee maker would be a great addition to your dorm room. It will you save money and not have to stand in a long line in Starbucks waiting for your coffee in the morning.
