9 Dorm Essentials at Bed Bath & Beyond to Ready You for Back to School

Dorm Room
 Bed Bath & Beyond

One of our favorite shopping seasons of the year is back-to-school season. When it comes to college dorm rooms, variety is key. If we’re fitting our whole life inside one dorm room, we need not only the most functional items for our small space but the most stylish as well!

Not feeling quite campus ready yet? No worries! With Bed Bath & Beyond, move-in day is going to be a cinch, and friends won’t ever want to stop visiting our dorm. Here are nine picks we love that will make our rooms the best spot to hang!

 

1. 360 Electrical PowerCurve 3.4 Surge Protector with 5 Rotating Outlets and 2 USB Ports

Surge Protector
Bed Bath & Beyond

Dorm rooms never have enough outlets and obviously we need ample space to plug in all of our devices. This is one of the best and unlike a traditional power strip, it includes USB ports so we can connect our devices directly. The power outlets rotate so we can plug our lamp, hair straightener, diffuser, laptop charger and phone charger in all at once and with ease!
