Are you preparing your kids for college, or maybe you are off to college? Well, here are three Sanity Savers that will help prepare you for the first year:
1. Maximize Space
Dorm rooms are small and in order to make the most of the space, it’s important to the vertical space–that means the walls. For this, I recommend using shelving and hooks, specifically hooks from Command Brand Products by 3M. Why? Because they use a unique stretch-release technology, which means when it’s time to remove the hooks, they come off cleanly.
2. Minimize Clutter
We all know clutter is a distraction and it’s crucial that college students have a place where they can focus on their school work. Therefore, it’s essential that students bring only what’s essential and relevant to school. Trust me, they’ll need room to put all that is accumulated over the school year. Keep in mind that your student will be spending a lot of time in their room, so send them off on their new journey with comfortable bedding, a coffee pot perhaps, and we know that a TV has become essential for unwinding and relaxing at the end of the day. Haier TV makes a fantastic 22″ unit that has excellent picture quality, is priced less than $300, and is only about 1.5″ thick, which means it takes up minimal space. It also functions as a PC monitor!
You’ll be anxious when your child goes off to college, mainly because they’ll be in unfamiliar surroundings. But don’t let your child fool you; they’ll be anxious too. Help you child become familiar with their new area with the tools they need. Try Superpages.com,which allows your student to search for services like drycleaners and laundromats. What’s great about Superpages.com is that it’s not only FREE, but if the service isn’t done properly, Superpages steps in with its Superguarantee to make it right! That’s peace of mind for everyone!
