Back to School Dorm & Bedroom Ideas That Every Student Wants and Needs

It’s back to school time. Whether you have a teen going into high school or one of your kids off to college or university, its the time of year when we take a look at what our kids have, and what they may need for the upcoming school year. For some you may be starting from scratch to get your kid off to school, for others you may need to add just a few necessities and perhaps a few fun things for your student to get ready. I have complied a list of my recommended items for those essentials and some of those fun things as well that will add to any student’s room décor.
