Dorm Room Essentials and Gadgets
3-in-1 Multifunction Breakfast Deluxe $48.88
It’s a griddle, it’s a toaster oven, it’s a coffee maker! Yes, this dorm-size all-in-one cooking appliance can meet most of your breakfast (and other meals’) needs. Under 700 watts, it’s safe and legal for most dorms (but do check with your school first just in case). Available in red or white.
When it comes to early morning classes, getting out of bed is half the battle. That’s exactly why a college student invented “Clocky,” the rolling alarm clock. Clocky can fall from up to 3’ before rolling around your room making R2-D2-type noises. You’ll need to get out of bed to put an end to the random pattern of beeps. Clocky works on carpet or wood floors. Features include an early low-battery warning, adjustable snooze time and the ability to disable the wheels. Available in aqua, black or white.
Laundry Bag With Wheels $25.89
Doing your own laundry is an annoying part of living away from Mom. This lightweight wheeled laundry bag can’t take out the stains, but it can take out some of the sting. With easy glide wheels, a drawstring closure and a side pocket for detergent and dryer sheets, you’ll have an easier time getting all your gear to the laundry room, which is often in the basement of dorms. The nylon fabric is easy to clean and durable, and the laundry bag collapses so it won’t take up a ton of space.
iHome MP3 College Speaker Lamp $38.00
What better combination to brighten your dorm life than light and music in one multifunctional desk lamp? Play music from your iPod, iPhone, iPad or CD player for superior sound while you study. Features a touch-sensitive on/off switch. Available in white or blue.
Retro Comfort College Chair $35.55
What’s not to love about inflatable dorm furniture? Don’t make your guests sit on the floor when there’s contoured, comfortable seating to enjoy! Made with soft, waterproof fabric, this retro chair can be stored in your closet or under your bed until you’re ready to blow it up. You can purchase an optional hand air pump or battery-powered air pump as an add-on. Available in orange or pink.
Canvas Organizer with Mirror $19.99
Why fight for a mirror in the crowded group bathroom when you can primp in the privacy of your room? The canvas organizer has 20 pockets of varying sizes, includes two side hooks, and fits over any door.
