It might only be the middle of July, but back-to-college season is already creeping up on us. Whether this is good news for you (parents) or mildly devastating (everyone else), it’s a good idea to get your dorm shopping out of the way now so you can enjoy the rest of summer. Thanks to a new Ikea “Back to College
” campaign, it’s easier than ever to ensure you have everything you need to conquer the upcoming school year.
In addition to a dorm and apartment checklist
, shopping guides helpfully categorized into kits
, and a “Surviving College 101
” guide, which includes tips on room sharing and making the perfect cup of coffee (you know, the essentials), Ikea has also put together a style quiz
to help you determine how you should decorate your room. The furniture company then breaks down its dorm-ready products into seven distinct themes
to make it even easier to find your perfect decor.
Need a little more guidance? Join Ikea for their “College Life Your Way
” events this weekend at a number of stores nationwide, where you can attend workshops and take advantage of special offers. And to do our part in making the transition to college a little smoother, we’ve put together a list of our favorite affordable dorm and apartment items from the retailer.
