New & Interesting Finds:  Dorm Checklist

Send to Kindle

With back to school season just around the corner, it’s time to start shopping!

Whether you’re a freshman or a parent of one, I’m sure you know how dorm rooms can be… well… plain and boring.  Since it’s going to be your home for the next four years, you need to look for ways to make it your own and feel like home.

It’s no secret that has nearly everything imaginable and it’s the best place to find the best deals online.  Prime members can even receive their packages in 2 days or even less.

But shopping on Amazon can sometimes feel like a challenge if you don’t know where to look.  Good thing the site has a section called “Interesting Finds” where you can find the coolest, quirkiest and one of a kind pieces that can spice up your dorm room.

Here are my favorite finds:

Kikkerland Potted Pen Phone Stand

This functional desk accessory brings an element of nature in your space while holding your phone, pens, pencils, etc.  And btw, this is a faux grass so there’s no watering required!

Vornado Flippi V6 Personal Air Circulator Fan

 This makes a great desk fan for your door room because it doesn’t just bring effective circulation but its chic design also adds flair to your space.

Chalkboard Wall Decal

This adhesive vinyl blackboard roll will transform your dorm wall or any surface without painting it (since you can’t really do that).  The 6.5 ft-chalkboard space provides unlimited possibilities for list-making, doodling, labeling, etc.

LED String Lights

Add a cozy and magic feel to your dorm room with these LED string lights.


Typography Pillow

Statement pillows make the perfect bed accessory to personalize your dorm space and make it your own.  Choose a cushion cover that speaks your personality.


Last but definitely not the least on my list is this Lightbox that you can customize with your favorite words, quotes or sayings – just flip the switch and watch your words come to life!
