Prepping for College + Nice Grad Presents


Recently I was given the opportunity to stop by At Home store, and check out all the fun stuff they have for dorms. With my son Cam going off to school in a few years, I have been thinking about dorm organizing and decor. 

So many fun, cute items to choose from! Before heading out, I made sure to print off my dorm shopping list here and sign up for my 10% off coupon too. 


I decided to stock up on organizing supplies. Because when it comes to small spaces, staying organized is essential. At Home makes it easy to stay organized on a budget AND be stylish!

These containers are perfect for organizing towels, bedding and more! I love the big purple crate, perfect for storage. And a must have for college students are these portable caddies, I chose pink. They are perfect for toting cleaning supplies, shower supplies, etc.

And don't forget the snacks! Keep the snacks organized and in reach with these storage containers-


I also made up some dorm kits, which are perfect for graduation presents!


First, in the kit shown above, this is the health/beauty kit. It includes Crest, Secret, Pantene and more, all packaged in a carry tote, which all students need! You'll want to customize your health/beauty kit to your student's favorite products.


And here is the second kit I made, which features dorm and school supplies, packaged in a laundry basket, another college student must-have! It includes reusable tumblers, sheet set, school supplies like pencils, pens, paper, and much more.

Plus, here are more ideas!
