Back-to-school shopping is definitely amped up when college is the destination, and amid all the linens, dorm decor and study supplies, your student should have a trustworthy tool kit.
Freshmen will feel much more at home away from home knowing they’re armed for just about any fix they can get into, and upperclassmen who have already learned the hard way will appreciate an organized arsenal of gear with their very own college toolbox.
So, here’s a recommended off to college toolbox packing list for the dorm room DIYer:
Hang it up
Clean it up
Once you’ve got everything assembled, do a little how-to review with College Girl or Boy so that they know just what tool to use when.This may generate a few eye-rolls, but trust me, they’ll thank you later (albeit silently, in their dorm room, from hundreds of miles away) when they will need their new college toolbox.
