Mom Buzz Media has teamed up with My UnEntitled Life to bring you this amazing deal!
My son started college today. I can’t believe how fast the time has gone. When you think about them moving into the dorm do you think about Staples? You should. They have boxes, tape, sharpies and labels. In other words they have everything you need to get your college student moved in and ready for their next big adventure. I had no idea Staples even has UPS service desks in store and drop off service (prelabeled) to ship available. How convenient to get stuff done!
CollegeMagazine.com has some great ideas to help make college move-in day easier…on kids not sure it’s ever easy on parents.
Make a Checklist.
Who knew that packing for college doesn’t have to be stressful? Not me. I’m stressed just thinking about it. However when you have the right move-in list, you’ll be moved in on campus with all your must-have necessities in no time.
Get Your Boxes Early.
Move in day has it’s own problems. Don’t put it off or let it sneak up on you. Whether you’re schlepping or shipping your room, you can easily box it up. I learned that Staples even bundles the boxes for you. First you begin with an 8 pack of SmoothMove medium sized boxes. Then grab a wardrobe box to save you the potential probems of transferring your entire closet hanger by hanger (what a pain!). For packing ninjas, the Bankers Box SmoothMove Kraft Moving Box doesn’t even need tape—it’s magic.
Get Label Crazy.
Your bathroom supplies box and late-night snack box look identical. You think you’ll remember what went where, but you won’t. Cue the labels. And if you’re shipping your boxes, you can label and ship all at once at Staples. That is a great way to relieve stress…label those boxes!
We all know that students want to freshen up their dorm space. Students can also find ways to personalize their space with the latest trends in dorm design and essentials, such as mini fridges, microwaves, décor and storage cubes at Staples.com/backtoschool. Staples Copy & Print Center can personalize products to create one-of-a-kind décor with custom photo canvases, photo panels, phone covers and more. We all need that am I right?
