Hey moms and dads are you busy getting your college student ready like I am? I’m in the thick of getting new bedding for my son Joey who is heading back to school in just a few weeks. The whole process can make you a little crazy.
To make things a lot easier, our friends from Bed, Bath & Beyond stopped by and gave some grade “A” advice on how to get your kids off to school with all the dorm room essentials along with how to build the perfect bed. And, get this – they set up a life-size dorm room right on our set complete with a twin bed, shelves, table, chair, lights, new wave crates and a rolling clothing rack. You’ve got to see these videos.
Here are some of the tips they shared with me this morning, It’s a little “Shopping For College 101.”
- Know Your School Rules
- Use a checklist
- Connect With Your Roommate
- Create An Online Registry
- Shop here, Pick Up There – a service of Bed, Bath & Beyond
