Countdown To College

I hate to even say the words "Back to School" yet, but the college kids will be heading there soon. Sending your child off to college and away from home takes some planning. It really isn't too early to begin making a list, and ordering what you need.  Miss Shop This and I spent the entire Summer getting her dorm room together. My favorite tip: order on line and have your things shipped to school! It's a great relief not to have to pack it up and ship it all yourself. There are so many fun and functional choices for every budget.  Here's what I loved.

Bisley File Cabinets
Add color and functionality to a drab dorm room. I remember my own coed needing something that locked to keep her passport and jewelry safe. Terrific as a trio or alone. Fun!
The Container Store 

Acrylic Desk Accessories
Style and function! Lighten up the desk with these clearly chic containers.  

Spectrum Hamper
Oh yes, there will be dirty clothes...for days! Store them in style with these chic containers.
The Company Store

Underbed Shoe Storage
Heels on wheels! Floor space is premium in a dorm room. You simply must hide things under the bed. The wheels make this one handy storage solution.

Mini Dot Sheet Set
Even if they don't make the bed, these sheets will add style and a pop of color to the dorm room. Now on sale at
Pottery Barn Teen 

WallCandy Chalkframe Decal
Decorative and oh so usable. She will write notes to herself or her roomie daily. Perfect for the dorm room door, as well.

Mix and match the way you stay organized with these super cool magnet chalkboard, cork, and dry erase board fragments. Buy 1 - 101 for unlimited designs like cool chevron, stylish squares, or chic cubes. Super cool. Read all about them at

Bungee Overdoor Towel Rack by Umbra
There's one thing for sure, the average dorm room has absolutely no room for towels, wet or dry. This rack is the answer. Plenty of room for sharing with a roommate.

Joy Mangano Hangers & Mini Steamer
Ask any college student. Huggable Hangers and a steamer are essentials for the school year. The hangers will triple the hanging space in that tiny closet. The steamer takes the place of an iron and bulky board. You need both.

Dorm Wall Decals
Your college guy or coed is all about social media. They will feel right at home with these icons on their wall. They are removable, too!

Both guys and girls will love the cozy comfort of this bedding. Available in a rainbow of colors with the feel of their favorite tee shirt.

Sugar Paper L.A. For Target
For the fancy pants girl (or me). These good looking desk accessories rate an A+ for style. They are amazingly affordable, too.

Dippy Large Basket
She'll store, undies, hair products, magazines, leggings and so much more in these. A pretty pick that is now half price at
 Pier One Imports    

Pacific Coast Down Bedding
Better sleep equals higher grades. We can't actually make them go to bed, but these products will certainly improve the quality of their sleep. I love all of my down bedding from this brand. Shop the back to school sale at Pacific Coast. You can find a good sale also at Macy's

Bright & Bold DIY
A girl has to have her little chotchkies to feel at home. Shop for all of the inexpensive equipment to get this look yourself at.
