By now, most of you are painfully aware that I will have a kid going to college a year from this fall, and that I reserve the right to act as if I'm the only mom blogger in the history of ever to send a kid away to school.
In a fit of planning ahead (it's like I don't even know me, anymore!), Imma gonna shop the back to college sales in a few weeks at Target, Walmart and the like to pick up some odds and ends that are pretty standard college fare in order to spread the expenses out a little bit.
(Those of you who have been there, feel free to chuckle at my naivete)
But? It's been a year or twenty-five since I've been to college, and I'm not positive about the kinds of stuff that's actually used in a dorm room.
I know there's all manners of "dorm room essentials" lists out there, but I suspect much of that isn't "essential".
I made what I thought was a good list, but now I can't seem to find it anywhere.
However, I was thinking of going ahead and picking up stuff like those plastic drawers, lamps, a fan, plastic storage tubs, waste basket, surge protectors, etc.
What other things are standard college dorm stuff that I can go ahead and buy?
And, no I have no idea where I'm going to put this stuff, but one thing at a time, man.
