    Start Saving Coupons NOW for Dorm Room Essentials

    Even if your children are in middle school, it is not too early to start saving those “Bed Bath & Beyond” (BB&B) coupons for when it’s time to outfit their college dorm room. Despite believing your children will never be old enough to go off to college, your kids will fly the coop sooner than you can imagine.

    Dorm Room Essentials

    It is amazing how many items on the college dorm room checklist you can find in one store – whether you shop at BB&B or Target or your favorite local department store. Freshman need bedding (XL twin sheets, blankets, bed bug zip mattress covers, mattress pads, egg crate toppers, pillows…), storage items (bed lifts, under bed containers, hooks…), electronics (extension cords, Ethernet cables…), room decorations (desk lamps, message boards, area rugs…), small appliances (microwaves, mini refrigerators, small vacuums, blow-dryers), cleaning supplies (all purpose spray cleaner, room freshener…), toiletries (including the all important plastic tub to carry shampoo, toothbrush, paste, face and body wash…) laundry products (detergents, bags, baskets…), and much more. And this list is by no means exhaustive. You see why it is worth stocking up on dollar-off and percentage-off coupons.

    When it’s your time to shop, you’ll easily spot fellow parents and kids purchasing freshman year supplies as they wind up and down the aisles with carts overflowing. Make sure to stop and chat. You never know who has a great find to share.
