Dorm Sweet Dorm – Must-Haves for the New Semester

Posted by Angie

It’s that time again! So many are heading back to school and for some, that means heading off to college and living in a dorm for the first time. But before you head off to school, head over to The Avenue where you can rack up on almost everything you need for your dorm room. From bedding to storage to cleaning, it can be found at some of the great stores.

Bed Bath & Beyond was the first stop I made with my daughter as we were shopping for items on her dorm packing checklist. There, we scored lots of great items like these decorative map shaped cork boards as well as Command brand hooks for hanging pictures, dry erase boards and organizers. We also found power strips. You can never have too many outlets in a dorm room!

While you’re there, be sure to check out Bed Bath & Beyond’s dorm items from their Equip Your Space line. These will make dorm life much nicer and spacious.

Don’t forget to pick up the not so pretty but oh so necessary cleaning items like a small broom set and laundry hamper. I love these patterns…they will make laundry fun, right?

Other stores at The Avenue, like Kirkland’s and World Market, are other great places to find beautiful dorm décor and storage containers for your room and don’t forget to refresh your bedding!

Wouldn’t a pouf make a great addition to your dorm room for a little extra seating? 


Well, our cart is full, but I’m sure we’ll be back. Always lots of great things to find at The Avenue!
