And off they go...
Happened to run into Bed Bath and Beyond over the weekend to find
those little lemon smelling balls that you put in your garbage disposal to make it smell better..
Bad idea..Oh, they had them alright..but in order to buy my one package I would have had to stand in line ten people deep....most of them Moms with shopping carts full of stuff for their kids going off to college. Oh..I so remember those days...
We looked high and low for the perfect twin bedspread....remember I have two girl. Boys don’t even want a bedspread. And then there was all the stuff you needed to save space.....the cones to put the beds on so you could put bins underneath for all their clothes that would never fit in the closet or the three little drawers they get . Then there was the matching waste paper basket with the cute things for the desk and the posters for the walls...and the shower stuff...OMG.. I spent a fortune...
Again..remember I have girls.... The SUV was so loaded..there almost wasn’t room for my girls.
So when I saw this today...I immediately thought back..
The 7 things you really don’t need to buy.. I don’t agree with a few of these...See what you think.
A printer.. Really? Supposedly the kids now e mail their assignments.
A tablet? No..just buy that good laptop
A big screen TV. Yeah...who has room for one of those. But a small TV is nice. Just see if the other kid is bringing one. No room for 2.
New clothes. My girls would disagree with this. I think whoever wrote this is figuring on the “freshman 15” weight gain.
A mini fridge- Again I disagree...My kids really used this.
An external hard drive. I don’t even know what that is ...LOL
An iron and an ironing board. Someone else will have one...and they don’t iron anyway.
So what is a must to send your kid off with? And what looking b
ack...was a waste.?
Someone will thank you ….!!!!
P.S I never did get those lemon smelling balls for my disposal!!!
