Dorm Room Essentials | All From Amazon



Can you believe it’s back to school time again? While everyone is getting ready to head back, our daughter comes home for 3 weeks until the fall semester starts after labor day. She’s been away since January, and we cannot wait to see her. And, we’re in our new home which she hasn’t seen yet, so that’s exciting too! Anyway, if you’re getting ready to pack up your college student, I’ve rounded up 12 of our favorite dorm room essentials to make your shopping easier. Our daughter has lived in a dorm, sorority house, and a townhouse on campus this summer. These tried and true must-haves are things you will actually use and all on Amazon Prime!
