With the start of the school year right around the corner, parents of students – especially those that are college bound – will be happy to know that Bed Bath and Beyond has your decor needs covered. The transition to college can be overwhelming and stressful for both student and parents, but no need to worry! Bed Bath and Beyond shares checklists, special prices, and great promotions to have you and your collegiate organized and tackling the next stage of life with ease and style. It’s a one-stop shop for decor from pillow shams to coffee cups, hygiene products to laptop accessories. There are even guides to maximize living in small spaces.
Whether living on or off campus, the necessities are generally the same, but do include a few differences. I went through the checklists and some of my top picks included bedding, towels, and shelving. Bed Bath and Beyond offers a wide variety of bedding including sets to fit twin size beds for dorm living. It’s an easy way to show off your style. I also recommend decorating with an area rug, curtains, and picture frames for a sense of “you” in your new space. I really like this over the bed shelving unit, it has a lot of simple features for making the most of space and puts almost everything you need within reach.
Here are a few of the other checklist categories with items:
- Bedding & Accessories – Pillows, throw/blanket, mattress protector, backrest.
- Desk & Storage Organization – Desk lamp, bulletin board and calendar, stacking drawers, hangers.
- Electronics & Audio – Surge protector, speakers, extension cords, USB wall adapters.
- Laundry & Cleaning – Basket or hamper, over the door towel rack, iron, stick vacuum.
Of course, bathroom items are important as well including towels, a caddy, flip flops or shower shoes, and especially hygiene products. While you might be ok with sharing your desk lamp or hangers with your roommate, it’s unlikely you want to share your health and beauty products. Bed Bath and Beyond and Harmon Face Values knows this all too well and recommend you #GetYourOwnNow. They have partnered together to save you money on all your favorites including Covergirl, Pantene, Clairol, Venus, Crest, Olay, and Gillette. While you’re shopping for all your decor needs, stock up on P&G bathroom necessities. Spend $40 in participating products and receive a $10 Bed Bath and Beyond gift card. Give the gift card to your student for anything you might have missed.
