August has arrived and back-to-school shopping is in full swing! There are so many things to prepare for that most first year students are facing an endless shopping list. While many essentials for properly outfitting your new college home are on this list, some of the most important items you’ll pack won’t be something you'll purchase.
When it comes to packing for college, it is important to remember that your dorm room will be the place you come home to every day, so it is important that it feels like home! Personal items like pictures, a favorite book, or a gift from a sibling or friend are just as important as those shower-shoes for the hall shower.
Pictures are fun and easy way to bring a piece of your past with you as you start at your new school.
Not only do they provide great decoration for your room, they show a little bit about who you are. There are many options for displaying your pictures. You can purchase large collage frames (easy for hanging on your wall) or design your own using a poster-sized frame. With all of the options out there you should be able to find just what you are looking for.
Or, if you would like to make your picture display you can find endless inspiration on our DIY Dorm Décor Pinterest Board. If you do make your own, you can design something that will complement the rest of your carefully chosen dorm decor!
Whatever you decide to do, you'll be happy to have a little something from home to make you smile when you walk into your new dorm.
