We're back from making the rounds at Linens 'n Things and The Container Store, as well as making a stop at the USC Store at South Coast Plaza. We now have most of the dorm essentials rounded up, excepting a desk lamp and a fan.
'tis the season, and many newspapers are publishing articles on off-to-college shopping. The Associated Press has published suggestions on what students should take, leave at home, and buy once they're at college.
The Baltimore Sun gave us a good tip on a site which sells many dorm room necessities, Dorm Buys.
Another article suggests that parents don't think enough in advance about what it will be like to have their student living away at college.
