Hi guys!
Another college related post today, but I really wanted to do one on the necessities! Obviously I'm a freshman and I just moved in, so what do I know, but regardless, I wanted to share some of my necessities!

1) Mattress Topper and Bedbug Cover
This is like a two-in-one type thing for me. I really feel strongly about bedbug covers that completely encase your mattress because you don't know who or what was in your mattress before you! And if you get a bedbug encasement, you'll want a mattress topper because it makes it so much more comfortable. 

2) Trunk 
I really like trunk type things for storage. My roommates and I all have the same ones from Walmart (here's the link) and it's really great because it has wheels, so you can roll it around if you need to! It also makes it super easy to put your stuff in storage later on! 

3) Fridge/Microwave/Coffee Maker/Printer
Obviously you don't need all of these, but if there's something that you think will make your life a lot easier, it's worthwhile to have in your room. For my room, it was all of this (plus a mini rice cooker), but it was split three ways, so cost-wise it wasn't too much!

4) Table Lamp
Super important if you're going to be studying in the room while your roommates are sleeping!

5) Cleaning Supplies
I think it's pretty much common knowledge to bring toiletries, but it's just as important to bring some cleaning supplies! If you're in a dorm with a communal bathroom, maybe some dish soap and a sponge is all you need, but if you're like me in a suite, then you're going to need to go all out! 

So these were my dorm room necessities! Let me know what yours are in the comments below, and let me know if I'm missing anything! Also, don't forget to follow my blog for more!
