top 10: room essentials with Kleenex

Full disclosure: this article is financially supported by Kleenex + Walmart

I remember the excitement of going to live on campus for the first time and all the things I'd need to style and transform a tiny dorm space into my home. These days, I'm transforming a much bigger space, but it's fun to compare my top 10 necessities form then and now:

Then: Dorm Room Style

  1. Cute, colorful bedding in twin XL. Sheets must be super soft.
  2. Cute, colorful towels to match bedding. Must be super soft.
my towels in college were this color!

  1. Fast laptop
  2. iPod dock
  3. Clorox Wipes
  4. A shower head with the as much force as a fire hose.
  5. The essential medicine cabinet stock - allergy tablets and pain relief
  6. Whatever dishes I could afford
  7. A stash of tea and sugar
  8. Paper goods - TP, paper towels, and Kleenex. Must be super soft.

I must have been an old soul, even then. Most of the list remains the same with a few minor tweaks:

Now: First House Style

  1. Cute bedding in queen. Sheets must be super soft.
  2. Matching towels. Must be super soft.
  3. Fast internet for all tech in house
  4. Baking soda and vinegar for all sorts of cleaning fun
  5. More natural cleaning supplies, soaps, detergents for everything else!
  6. A shower head with the as much force as a fire hose.
  7. The essential medicine cabinet stock - allergy tablets and pain relief - plus essential oils and vitamins/minerals to avoid usingother meds.
  8. Matching dishes
  9. A stash of tea and organic sugar
  10. Paper goods - TP, paper towels, and Kleenex. Must be super soft.
Some things never change. While my budget has improved slightly since college, it's still important that I not waste money which is why Walmart is always a great place to shop for the essentials- especially the Kleenex Expressions Tissue.




And while it's no secret that I wish chevron would die, I know most of you bloggers are still all over the chevron and thus I will let you know that four colors of Chevron designs to go with your style are a limited Back to School edition with  Walmart in a  64 ct oval box. Whether you're decorating your dorm or just continuing the chevron craze, you're welcome.

no dorm bathroom is complete without Kleenex!
