Back to School: What to buy for your college dorm room

GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- Starting college and moving into a dorm can be overwhelming for some students.

That’s why 7&4’s Savannah Fish went to Bed Bath & Beyond in Traverse City to find ways to make the transition easier.

Experts say some key items you will need are proper bedding, everything from: a mattress protector, mattress enhancer and fitted sheets and pillows.

Other items to make dorm life easier: shower caddy, shower sandals, closet rods, a fan and more.

The store also has great programs to help make shopping easier and cheaper, including: school information sheet (what’s allowed in the dorm and what’s not), Bed Bath & Beyond dorm room check list, pack and hold program and the college savings pass (saves students 20% for an entire year).

We are continuing our back to school coverage Thursday morning.

7&4's Savannah Fish will share easy breakfasts and lunches to make this school year at Lucky's Market in Traverse City.
