This is a list of my all-time favorite products that I would buy a million times again. Whether you are looking for college or blogging recommendations, these are my holy-grail products and things I recommend to everyone.
My Favorite College Products:
1. Twin XL-Mattress Pad
If you're going to buy anything for your dorm, make it be a mattress pad!!
Seriously, college dorm beds suck and are so uncomfortable. I bought this mattress pad my freshman year of college and am so obsessed with it that I've used it every year since and have even put it on my queen size mattress at home (even though it only covers half the bed).
Best part is that it's one of the cheapest mattress pads on Amazon. Buy it, you won't regret it.
Okay, this is more like a life-hack than anything but I am so obsessed with this.
It's a free website that gives you cash-back when you online shop. I mostly use it when I buy things online at Amazon, Target, and SheIn.
It's saved me $400 dollars so far :/. Best part is that it's free and not sketchy at all! My friend actually recommended it to me because she liked it so much.
3. Small Dorm Vacuum
I am a major clean freak and having this in my dorm room was the best!
This vacuum is less than $20 and works SO much better than the crappy vacuum they have for you to use in the dorms (believe me, they're terrible and like 80 years old).
Three years later and I still use this all the time in my apartment.
4. Sound Machine
If you are a light sleeper or need it to be silent to study, you NEED this in your life for college.
I am both a light sleeper and can only study in silence (I know, high maintenance) and this took away all noise that was happening around me.
Whenever I was falling asleep and my roommates were up or people were making loud noise in the dorm rooms next to us I would just turn this on and not hear anything.
5. Towel Wrap
I got this as a gift at my graduation party and thought I would never use it...truth be told I wore it every single day even if I wasn't showering!
To know that I didn't have to worry about my towel falling off while I was walking to the community bathroom at the end of the hallway was so nice.
Everyone has these and if you are looking to get your friends or yourself this as a little gift, get it monogrammed! Mines monogrammed and it added the perfect little touch to it.
(PS! This towel wrap comes in all types of colors)
6. Day Designer Planner
I am a major planner and this is by far the best planner I have ever owned.
I love it because it has a to-do section for me to put any homework/exams I have but also has a time-blocking space so I can plan my day out.
There is a more expensive version of the Day Designer that something get but I get the $30 dollar version and it works perfect for me!
7. Amazon Prime
When I was living in the dorms (and now still in my college apartment) I used Amazon Prime ALL the time and would get next-day delivery of stuff to my dorm room.
As a student you get free Amazon prime so I definitely wouldn't not take advantage of that. Plus, you can get your books way faster.
ALSO! With Prime you get access to all of Amazon's movies and TV shows that are so good (mostly talking about The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel...so good).
I always used to see ads to buy your school books off of Chegg but never did until last year.
First off, it was the cheapest play I could find to rent my books. When the books came I opened the box and there was all types of samples in it that came free with the books! I got a full can of Red Bull, Tarte lip gloss, and random other things.
It was such a nice surprise that now I always (unless Amazon has it way cheaper) rent my school books through Chegg.
