#20 Stinky Dorm Kit
Stinky Dorm Kit
Coming in at #20 on the College Dorm Checklist, we've got the Stinky Dorm Kit. Yes, believe it or not, you may find yourself living with a not-so-sanitary roommate. If this happens, you'll be glad you took my advice on this one. It's better to have it and not need than to need it and not have it. Just get it, trust me.
Who can go without vegging out from time to time, watching their favorite television shows? Certainly not ME! Sure, most of time I will be studying or watching shows on my laptop, but sometimes you've gotta kick back and watch the big screen. For that reason, the TV comes in at #19 on the College Dorm Checklist.
#18 Room Decor
Now, I'm not one for making the place TOO fancy, but, a little bit of deco certainly does help make the dorm a home. Coming in at #17 on the College Dorm Checklist is Room Decor!
#17 File Organizer
You're going to be seeing a lot of paper. You're going to want somewhere to file it away in a somewhat sensible fashion. You're going to want to have #17 on the College Dorm Checklist.
#16 on the College Dorm Checklist is a no-brainer. You're going to need a fan. Whether you're at Harvard or USC, your dorm room is going to get hot at some point. Be ready.
#15 Dry Erase Board
Dry Erase Board
Believe it or not, there are schedules to juggle, chores to assign and reminders for roommates that will require a "home". Make #15 their home.
#14 Laptop Speakers
#14 on the College Dorm Checklist could be considered a bit controversial, but, let's be honest, college isn't ONLY about STUDYING all of the time. When it is time to cut loose, you're going to need more than those little Mac speakers to get the party rockin'. Grab a set of these and you can thank me later with an invitation to the party.
#13 First Aid Kit
First Aid Kit
The occasional bumps and bruises are bound to happen in a college dorm. When things go bump in the night, reach for the First Aid Kit, coming in at #13 on the College Dorm Checklist.
#12 Water Filter
You can save money, you can save time, but can you save Planet Earth? Maybe! With #12 on the College Dorm Checklist, at least you can save yourself from drinking nasty sediment and such!
#11 Trash Can
Unless you want to have a really messy dorm, you'll need somewhere to keep all of the trash. Putting it in a trash can is probably better than putting it on the floor. For this reason, you should definitely go grab #11 on the College Dorm Checklist.
#10 Dorm Shower Caddy
Dorm Shower Caddy
You don't want to slip and fall on your roommate's open shampoo bottle, or cut your foot on their razor do you? Well, they don't want to end their college career because of YOUR bathroom items either. Get #10 and keep everyone alive and learning.
#9 Outlet Adapter
#9 on the College Dorm Checklist is pretty important. I mean, how else do you plan on running all of those devices at the same time? Grab one of these and avoid having to schedule times to plug in.
#8 Memory Foam Dorm Mattress
Memory Foam Dorm Mattress
Those little beds that they supply are NOT going to provide with night after night of sweet dreams, I assure you. Let the College Dorm Checklist be your buddy here... Just go grab #8.
#7 Alarm Clock
You wake up and the sun is shining brightly outside. It's an absolutely beautiful day. Then you realize that you were supposed to be up before dawn to catch your first class. Don't let this happen to you. Pick up #7 and stay in school. I recommend the one that shakes your bed, especially if you were out late the night before with your pals.
#6 Desk Lamp
You're going to have things on a table, and you're going to need to see them. Spring for #6 and see what you're reaching for. It also comes in handy when reading books in the evenings, but don't take OUR word for it. Try it, light ROCKS!
#5 Dorm Chair
No College Dorm Checklist would be complete without a Dorm Chair. You're in college, do I really have to explain why #5 would come in handy?
#4 Dorm Bedding
Coming in at #4 on the College Dorm Checklist is Dorm Bedding. It's what you put on that thing you call a bed. We don't care what you do on it, we just want to make sure we help you do it in style!
#3 Mini Fridge
Not all dorms come equipped with a huge fridge. Even if they do, not all roommates can be trusted with YOUR icy beverages and delicious refrigerated snacks. For this, we give you #3.
When you are in college, you have to eat. Ramen cooks really quickly in the microwave. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you #2 on the College Dorm Checklist.
#1 Dorm Organization Kit
Dorm Organization Kit
Drum Rolllllllll PLEASE! Coming in at #1 on the College Dorm Checklist is the Dorm Organization Kit. An organized mind is a mind with room to cram more knowledge. Place an order for #1 and place your mind at ease because with this kit, you'll have PLENTY of room left in that noggin for useless facts, figures and historical knowledge!
Over all, what are your thoughts on this Top 10?
