Dorm Room Haul-Part 2

A couple months ago I shared some things that I had bought for my dorm room. Since then I have bought a few more things, so I decided it was time for a second dorm room haul. If you haven't seen the first one you can check it out here, it features my bedding, some desk accessories, and a few other decorations. This time, the post is more about essentials, but there are a few decorations also included! I definitely still have more to buy so there will be at least one more of these posts.

 Brita Slim Pitcher and Brita Filters
I wanted to be able to have filtered water in my dorm room, so I picked up this Brita Slim Pitcher. I think it is perfect for the dorm room because it is fairly small, so it won't take up a lot of space. The pitcher was pretty affordable, it only cost around $10. The filters are the more expensive part, they cost $25, but you can get a $5 rebate from Bed Bath and Beyond right now!

 J.C. Penny Flannel Sheets
I wanted to get flannel sheets for the winter because I have loved them the past few years I've had them on my bed at home. These ones are super soft and will hopefully help to keep me a little bit warmer in those cold weather months. Plus, they were on sale because it is summer!

I, unfortunately, couldn't find this online to link it, she did tell me it was from Kirkland's, so if you check out your local store you may be able to find it! My friend got it for me for my birthday knowing that my dorm colors were green, navy, and gold and I absolutely love it. It is made to hang on the wall and I can't wait to find the perfect place for it. 

 Hobby Lobby File Folders and Acrylic Tape Dispenser
I got a few more desk accessories this time around. I found these adorable file folders from Hobby Lobby and with the 40% off coupon they were a super good deal. I love using file folders to organize papers and these were just too cute to pass up. I also got an acrylic tape dispenser. I use tape all the time for the most random things so I figured I needed a tape dispenser. This one is super chic looking since it is acrylic!

 Mirror from Amazon
I got this mirror to use to do my makeup. It isn't fancy, but it has a large mirror perfect for being able to see your whole face. I love it and know I will get lots of use out of it! I know it is made for self-portraits, but it is a good alternative to those expensive mirrors you see at Bed Bath and Beyond. 

My friend also got me this super cute basket for my birthday. I think it will be perfect for organizing and storing things, plus it matches my color scheme perfectly. It is pretty big so it will hold a lot of stuff, and will be good for bringing all my stuff to college as I can fill it up with towels, sheets, etc.

Wall charger from Amazon
My mom found this and I think it is a great idea. Basically, it just lets you have four USB outlets in one regular outlet! I think it will be perfect for college when you are going to have limited charging space, but really it is perfect for anywhere. It would be great for travel!

 First Aid Kit from Target
I got this first aid kit just because I thought it would be nice to store all my medicine and bandaids in, so that while I'm sick I don't have to be searching all over for what I need. The case was actually free from Target when you buy three things that would go in it(band-aids, Neosporin, Benadryl, etc). It's super cute and has lots of pockets inside. I haven't finished getting everything for it, but once I do I may do a whole post dedicated to it. 

Towels from J.C. Penny
I think one of my cousins suggested to not get white towels because they will get really dirty. As a result, I found these Navy ones. I think they are perfect because they won't show dirt, but they also match my dorm colors! The towels from J.C. Penny are super nice and affordable(buy one get one for a penny)! I'm going to be getting them monogrammed as well for a little added cuteness. 

I ended up getting a duvet for my bedding. I bought the duvet cover from P.B. Teen(see my duvet cover here), but I needed the insert. I found this one from Target and it was a good deal for the size I needed and the weight I wanted. I've never had a duvet before and am interested to see how it works out in my dorm!

I hope you all enjoyed this post! I love sharing what I have been buying. If you are already in college or are off to college next year please let me know what some essentials I need to get are. Also, don't forget to check out the first part if you haven't already!
