Finding everything you need to before you head back to college is never effortless. I always feel overwhelmed when remembering all the different things I have to buy to prepare for the year. It’s always hard to find everything you need, from bedding, school supplies, to wall décor, it seems like I’m making oodles of trips to get everything together. Luckily for me, I have both a Bed, Bath, & Beyond and a Walmart within close proximity to my university. If you don’t have the luxury of shopping in-store, the excellent news is that you can have your items shipped directly to your door!

I often find myself toiling to find the perfect bedding for my dorm at a reasonable price. Not only does Bed, Bath, & Beyond have complete bedding sets in their useful Bed in Bags, they have an impressive conglomeration of different brands and sizes that are perfect for any age or style. If you’re looking for something a little more specific, head over to their College Bedding section where you can pick up exactly what you need- a comforter, an extra pillowcase, or new sheets. But don’t stop there! Bed, Bath, & Beyond has cultivated an entire section dedicated to Back to College items including bath, kitchen, electronics, laundry, and more! Check out the Studio Sync Bluetooth Media Shelf which doubles as both a speaker as well as décor. Or, if you’re looking for a new coffeemaker you can choose from the Keurig K45 Elite Brewing System, or the simpler Keurig K10 Mini Brewing System. Easy to browse with items aplenty, you’re sure to pick up whatever you need in one stop.

Walmart boasts just as impressive of a repertoire with its own Back to College section. Whether you’re looking for simple bedding, seating for your room, or even small appliances, you’ll be dazzled by the variety of items they have for you to deck out your dorm.  With pots and pans, you can make sure your kitchen stays up to date so you can cook yourself healthy meals throughout the year. If you like entertaining, check out their great selection of futons and beanbag chairs to make movie nights even more successful. Need new electronics?  Check out their selection of printers, laptops, and tablets; a new Flexx tablet or Chromebook will definitely keep you on top of your schoolwork.

Finally, 1800Flowers has exactly what you need to make your dorm feel a little more like home! From stunning Marigolds to vibrant Sunflowers, you’ll find just the right flower accents to match your newly decorated dorm.
