The school year is coming to a close and graduation season is in full swing — but you’ll notice that home goods stores are already starting to stock up on back-to-school essentials like bedding, bath accessories and, well, beyond. It may feel like you have all the time in the world before dorm shopping becomes a must, but if you want my advice, the sooner the better. Dorm shopping was always the first thing I did when I got back home from college. First of all, the stores are freshly stocked, so you’ll have your pick of all the best new stuff. And, more importantly, you really don’t want to deal with the maddening chaos that is a home goods store in the middle of August. You won’t even be able to fit a cart down the aisle where they keep the Twin XL sheets. While bedding, toiletries, snacks and flip-flops for the gross communal showers are a must, there are a few products out there that are easy to overlook but so crucial for easing into dorm life as seamlessly as possible. Whether you’re going back for your final round or it’s your first time away from home, you should absolutely invest in these nine nifty products.
