A lot of us are looking forward to weekend getaways but some of us are gearing up for the big getaway: the move to college and into a dorm. Below are some of best tips for making this transition from the nest and into the dorm room...This can be such an exciting time. We remember the move: tears, exhileration and...stuff. We had high hope for that first dorm room, but didn't have the tools (or Apartment Therapy) to really pull things off.
If we can give some advice:
- Overall, remember to have fun with whatever you try out in your dorm, you'll only be in that room for 9 months so you're not stuck with anything. If you make good use of the space you have plus craiglist, and you'll be living stylishly in no time.
- Be mindful about what you bring with you. Accumulation is a given, so don't be worried about having an empty dorm room, it will fill up quickly. So just bring the things with you that you love and use and leave the rest behind!
