Target Dorm Essentials

As mentioned in previous dorm room posts my daughter Bella will be heading to Hawai’i Pacific University with her roommate where they will set themselves up.

Since they need to quarantine 14 days there is no point for the parents to go.

That said the preferred place to shop over there is Target, Walmart, and Bed Bath & Beyond.

The filler stuff can come from Amazon and Urban but for the most part, it will be the above stores.

Again since we are all about trying to be prepared this week there will be a series of posts from those stores specifically so she has the resources she needs.

First Up is Target!

The plan is to get the essentials covered and then she will figure the rest out while she is there.

Bella is very resourceful so I am confident she’ll do amazing.

OK, so this is our starting point and guide to follow to get a jump start.

Trying to keep it as simple as possible and then the rest will be purchased over time.

Also, some things she already has so this is based off Bella’s needs right now.

How is your college planning going?!
