Dorm Room Essentials

Today, while I was browsing the web I found this really neat site, Ocm.com which sells university approved linen bundles!  While you might feel this will take the fun out of shopping for school, I think it will help removes some of the stress. 

In the most expensive bundle you pay $660 and get 51 items! That’s like getting each item for under $13 and getting the stuff shipped directly to your school! Some of the items included in the package are: 

  • 2 sets of sheets
  • A mattress pad 
  • A memory foam pad 
  • A reversible comforter
  • A fleece blanket
  • 2 sets of towels
  • A hamper
  • 2 under the bed storage solutions
  • A rug
  • A fan
  • A lamp
  • Pillows
  • A large trunk and so much more!
  • If you are planning on purchasing all new items for your dorm room, I highly recommend you check this website out!  Outside of this set you will need to buy a few other items like a shower caddy, some space bags and kitchenette appliances. 

I think the most valuable thing in this whole bundle, is the trunk! Having a safe place to lock away your valuables like your birth certificate, social security card or passport is extremely important. Just because you trust your roommate doesn’t mean someone you don’t know won’t be in your room. Don’t risk getting your belongings stolen. Instead, have a designated safe box, or trunk that you can lock your valuables in. Trust me, you don’t want to go through any stolen identity drama. 

Although Bed Bath and Beyond, Target, and Walmart might be top of mind while shopping for back to school, they aren’t the only options. Don’t limit yourself and don’t wait till the last minute to purchase your supplies! Check out OCM.com and let me know what you think about it! 

Keeping it Fresh, Young & Free,
