It’s that time of year! Back to school! I’ve partnered with BabbleBoxx to bring you today’s post on college essentials! Seriously, I used to have such a love/hate relationship with this time of year! I learned over the years, that it’s the small essentials we forget about which bring the most comfort IMO. I hope some of these make the back to school adjustment a little easier for you 😜.
Seriously, money is tight and you need it for nights out with friends! You’re better of buying things in bulk and divvying it all up with your roomies. Skip your parents big box store membership card, and opt for EZneeds! It’s cheaper than regular store prices and get’s delivered straight to your door! Saves time and money?!? Yes, please! I love their household cleaning supplies and beauty products!
Snacks for sharing
I think one of the biggest adjustments for me as an only child was learning to share. Obviously, money is tight and you don’t want your roommates to eat all of your food. However you should have some snacks for sharing like Sour Punch Share Me!® Mini Bites! Because sometimes you will run out and want to nibble on their treats, and vice versa. It’s all part of being a good roomie!
Plus going to college is when you really start to figure out who you are as an #adult. Start stepping up your hosting skills by having some snacks on hand for when friends visit. I mean, who doesn’t love bite sized sour candy?!
Get those time management skills in check! You can’t be late to class! To impress your friends, go with something vintage and timeless like the Casio Vintage Collection. It has all the style of a vintage watch, with all the modern day essentials like a digital face, timer, and stop watch.
I don’t know about you, but during college, I definitely felt homesick at times. I always loved having something cozy to keep me warm as I cried into my pillow at night. Since dorm life can get a little mish-mashed (I can’t even tell you how many times I ended up with a roommates stuff), I would go with a personalized touch like monogramming these Viv & Lou throw blankets (Use code Millennial25 for 25% off your purchase – exp: 9/30/17)
No joke, you need to stock up on throat drops! I’m an introvert who’s accustomed to alone time. College felt like a complete 180. With sorority rush, living in a frat house, and #dormlife, I basically found myself in 24/7 conversations and neededddd throat drops!
You can save $1 off 2 bags of Luden’s here (because LBH, Luden’s are the most delicious!)
College is going to throw some curve balls at you. If you’re lucky, you’ll get your heart broken, find new friends, get a bad grade, and learn that it’s okay to fall down, because it’s all about how you pick yourself back up!It's okay to fall down, because it's all about how you pick yourself back up!Click To Tweet
Personally, I’m loving 2016’s Goodreads Choice Award For Poetry: The princess saves herself in this one! It’s full of inspiration, resilience, and learning how to write your own ending! Also since I know we all need a planner to survive college, I’m loving all the inspiring and upbeat quotes in The Posh: Happy Living Planner 2017-2018
