Happy Friday! In today’s post, I’m sharing a ton of great products for those of you that are moving your kiddo or someone you know back to school! It doesn’t matter if it’s into a dorm, apartment, house, sorority/fraternity, etc! I shared a post on Monday with some more helpful tips for moving your kid to college you can read here.

Cleaning Supplies

Something you can never have enough of…cleaning supplies! Even if they don’t use them, it’s a good idea to stock up on Clorox wipes, Swiffer dusters, and Clorox spray! And don’t forget the laundry detergent! Amazon Prime everything they need directly to the house, dorm, or apartment so you don’t have to deal with moving all of it!


Since they probably already have a laptop and other basic electronics, think about the accessories they might need. Like a wireless mouse or keyboard. A good speaker or headphones are always a great little gift to give so that they can listen to music while studying or getting ready to go out. A printer is also a must-have!


If they’re moving into a house or apartment, you can either buy them all new kitchen stuff or give them your hand-me-downs and get some new stuff for yourself! 🙂 Target has some really great quality plastic dishes right now that come in multiple colors!

Make It Cozy

Don’t forget the cute wall art, decorative pillows, comfy throw blankets, etc.! Fun tip: Adding a mirror makes the space feel and look larger than it is!

Things You Forget About

There’s always a list of things you wish you had thought about getting them or that you forgot! Some of these things might include command strips, a toolkit, vacuum, batteries, water filter, power strip/extension cord, and an iron and ironing board.

Have a great weekend! xoxo – Tanya
