Bed Bath & Beyond Give Tips For Anyone College-Bound or Moving Out on Their Own

Whether you are college-bound, have a sibling or teenager about to hit college or those who have decided to move out on their own from the confines of the dorm– but need a little guidance on how to set up “camp” in their new digs, Bed Bath & Beyond has lots of great ideas and tips.
While most of these tips are skewed to college kids, that doesn’t mean it won’t apply to you- regardless of age. If you are suddenly finding that your relationship “went south” and you are moving out, or you have a new job that requires relocation, why not use a few of these tips to make that transition a little easier. Rachael Risinger & Bed, Bath & Beyond have some great ideas that are clear, easy and to the point. For those not heading to college but out on your own, the tweaks are courtesy of moi.

Beds are key to ANY dormroom or digs you are moving into.

When it comes to protection and comfort for a bed, think layers.
1) start with a bed bug mattress protector that completely encases your mattress to keep dust, dust mites, allergens and bed bugs out of your mattress.
2) second layer is a mattress pad which protects the mattress and adds comfort and softness.
3) For support, choose a foam mattress topper, which lies directly on top of the mattress protector, or top it all off with a fiber or featherbed, that creates a pillow-top that’s soft and cozy.

Everyone knows that dorm rooms are appallingly small. (*heck my clothes won’t fit in those closets). However things don’t get much better if you are out on your own in your own apartment or sharing a place with someone else. It’s HARD to get all your gear into the space you will have. What’s to do? Test drive these suggestions!!

To maximize room space, the trick is to make the most of every inch. Try to find pieces that multi task: an ottoman that doubles as a seat and storage. Bedside caddies that hang off the side of your mattress can help keep your person stuff at hand. Bed lifts that raise your bed inches off the floor make for extra storage that can help you stow tubs and/or gear. A dorm room space saver that fits over the bed also adds extra shelving space and works no matter what kind of bed room. They also hae similar things for the bathroom too.

Maximize closet space by using a set of slim hangers to create uniformity and fit more clothes. Try a double-hang closet rod that adjusts horizontally and vertically to find the right fit in the closet. Simply hang on the existing closet rod and you get double the space. Shoe and sweater shelf organizers to expand your closet space.

Bed Bath & Beyond, the college shopping experts, have the tools, tips and solutions to make shopping for college as easy and stress free as possible on the “Shop for College” tab at
A copy of their College Checklist is available in your local store and online. They also offer a great service to help get your stuff to college. You can shop for all your dorm room essentials at a store near home and pick up everything up at a store near their school.

For those beyond college, make sure you snag one of those checklists to see what you need for your next move– because it’s better to be prepared ahead of your next move than after you find out that there is not enough room!!
