Master Move-In Day: Essential Dorm Room Gear to Start College Right

Across the country, millions of college-bound freshmen are making the big move away from home—with tons of boxes in tow. The tendency to over-pack for move-in day is strong, but don’t stress: we’re here to help lighten your load.

We’ve picked out some of our favorite appliances, housewares, decorations, and other essential dorm room gear to make campus feel like home. With that sorted out, you’ll have more time to devote to the important college questions. Like: How many bowls of cereal can you really eat during one cafeteria meal?

Never again struggle to fit your charger into the outlet behind your bed. Never again struggle to fit your charger into the outlet behind your bed.

YOUR BED

A comfy dorm bed is college priority number one (never underestimate the value of a power nap between classes). Since those standard-issue mattresses aren’t always the softest, begin by investing in a memory foam mattress topper. Top it off with some sustainable twin XL-sized bedding; if you want to keep it green, opt for sweatshop-free, organic hemp sheets.

Next, on to our fave bed hack: bed risers. Lifting your bed a good few inches off the ground won’t just give you a valuable underbed storage area (speaking of: these underbed organizers are your friend)—but if you opt for Bed Bath & Beyond’s USB Bed Lift Set, you’ve got a charging station right where you need it.

Dorm rooms are already minimalist, so work that to your advantage with some bold statement pieces. Dorm rooms are already minimalist, so work that to your advantage with some bold statement pieces.

YOUR DÉCOR

Cinder block walls and linoleum floors aren’t gonna show up on your favorite design blogs anytime soon. Time to do some decorating beyond the dorm room clichés (sorry, Christmas lights).

First things first: Scope these eight great online stores for budget-friendly, beautiful artwork. If you want an even more personal touch, you can also transform your own photos into wall-sized masterworks. CanvasPop can turn everything from Instagram shots to photo collages into large-scale pieces.

Once you’ve dealt with the walls, turn your attention to the floor. A statement rug is one of the best ways to add some comfiness and personality to your space. If you wanna go green and upcycle some older textiles, opt to make a colorful rag rug of your own—here’s a nifty tutorial.

Who needs a 52” flat screen when you can project Zoolander on the ceiling (or the bathroom wall, or the dining hall). Who needs a 52” flat screen when you can project Zoolander on the ceiling (or the bathroom wall, or the dining hall).

YOUR ENTERTAINMENT 

Not that we’re encouraging you to have any dorm room ragers, ahem, but you are gonna want to pack some fun stuff, too. Portable bluetooth speakers are one of the easiest ways to get a good vibe going. We like the UE ROLL 2, which is affordable, portable, sounds great, and is even waterproof. (That’s one way to make communal bathroom living more exciting.)

Want your dorm room hang sessions to be the talk of your floor? Add a projector to your routine and start screening movies (hey, those cinderblock walls can really come in handy after all!). Brookstone’s HDMI Pocket Projector, which hooks up to your smartphone, may be small, but it packs visual punch.

Cut some hassle out of your life and take advantage of all the cool new tech for students.  Cut some hassle out of your life and take advantage of all the cool new tech for students.

YOUR TECH 

This is 2016—and we can bet that you’re not gonna be using your dorm room’s landline phone. Instead, invest in your own essential tech. For starters: a desk lamp. But we’re talking a desk lamp that also wirelessly charges your phone—meet IKEA’s Varv lamp, a game-changing piece of dorm room gear.

And because you can never get enough charge these days: Pick up a BirkSun, a backpack with a built-in solar panel that charges your phone as you walk between classes. For full connectivity, add in an Evernote Smart Notebook. The classic Moleskin notebook is linked with Evernote, so you can transform you handwritten notes from class to the Cloud in a matter of moments.

Until we develop literal caffeine injectors, AeroPress may be the next best thing. Until we develop literal caffeine injectors, AeroPress may be the next best thing.

YOUR APPLIANCES

You already know the standard dorm room gear: it isn’t college without a mini-fridge, microwave, and sandwich toaster (whaddup, George Foreman). But don’t stop there. You may not realize it now, but a portable coffee maker is gonna be a life (and money) saver during your time in college. The super-portable AeroPress is a one-shot wonder, while the French press travel mug lets you take your freshly made joe to class and back. Ahh—you’re halfway to an A+ already.

Donate, Sell, Recycle: Easy, Trash-Free Ways to Clear Your Clutter

So, you missed out on that whole “spring cleaning” thing, or maybe you’re cutting down to prep for a big move. Looking around, you see unworn clothing in your closet, tons of cables for devices you no longer use, and the guitar you just never got around to learning how to play.

If you’re compelled to throw everything in a trash bag and never see it again, we feel you. But there are so many easy ways to get those goods to a better place.

You have a few sustainable options: donating, selling, and recycling. You could even get a tax write-off (cha-ching). Here’s a quick guide to organizing and making the most of your unwanted clothes, furniture, and…stuff.

WHAT TO GIVE

Someone’s trash is someone else’s treasure. Like that Panic at the Disco CD you’re still hanging on to.Someone’s trash is someone else’s treasure. Like that Panic at the Disco CD you’re still hanging on to.

Clothes. Anything from t-shirts, to formal wear, to shoes can be easily donated or sold. But first, if you’re looking at something that’s torn, stained, or otherwise damaged, resist the urge to donate it and let someone else handle the fix. Take salvageable items to the tailor, cobbler, or bust out your own needle and thread. When in good condition, these things are perfect for donation or sale, but keep in mind that most places do not accept undergarments or swimwear.

Furniture. There is always a thriving market for furniture on Craigslist, so if you’re flexible on time and pick-up, try posting anything from bed frames to floor lamps. When it comes to these posts, there’s nothing too big or too small. While many thrift stores do accept furniture, they may need notice beforehand to ensure that they have the space or assistance required.

Bedding. When you’ve upgraded to a snooze-tastic mattress, it can be tricky to find a way to donate your old one. Due to sanitation guidelines, some organizations do not accept bedding, so be sure to check before you donate. Some will happily take sheets and comforters, but cannot accept mattresses or box springs. You can also check women’s shelters and animal shelters, which may have different guidelines (and will surely put your pre-loved threads to good use).

Unless you are weaving the world’s most uncomfortable sweater, heave ho all those rando cords and cables.Unless you are weaving the world’s most uncomfortable sweater, heave ho all those rando cords and cables.

Electronics. Laptops, music players, and batteries do not belong in the landfill. (Toxins could leach into the water supply.) If you have an old iPod, MacBook, or Apple product, you can work with their e-recycle partner, with many devices scoring you free shipping, packaging, and an Apple gift card. Best Buy accepts a wide range of electronics for recycling at no cost, and will take away your old appliances for a small fee when you buy new ones. Regardless of where you’re sending your appliances, just be sure to clear your data first.

Sports gear. If your bike has been sitting, unused, for months and will never be taken for a ride again, go ahead and donate it. However, if you want to keep it around and make some cash, post it on Spinlister. Think of it as the Zipcar for bikes, surfboards, and snow gear, where people can rent by the hour, day, or week.

WHERE TO GIVE

Donating old household items and furniture so someone else can use them = good karma.Donating old household items and furniture so someone else can use them = good karma.

Donation bins. They’re conveniently located at gas stations and city sidewalks, requiring a simple drop-off of your clothes—no appointment or paperwork. While all donation bins should handle your clothing, be aware that some are for nonprofits and some are run by for-profit organizations that simply resell the clothing. Companies like Planet Aid and Thrift Land USAresell clothing for a profit, while Goodwill and Big Brother Big Sister bins benefit charity. (While it’s entirely legal to sell the clothes, it is illegal for these organizations to present themselves as charities.)

That bright orange fleece seemed like such a good idea at the time….That bright orange fleece seemed like such a good idea at the time….

Thrift stores. Speaking of Goodwill, for a giveaway with a mission, donate your goods at thrift stores. Two of the most common? Goodwill helps people find employment through education and training, while The Salvation Army is an evangelical Christian organization funding homeless shelters and disaster relief. Plus, you could be eligible for a tax write-off based on weight or number of items. See a common list of accepted items here.

Consignment stores. For-profit stores like Buffalo Exchange buy clothing selectively and only during the appropriate season (meaning they’re unlikely to take your winter gear in July). While it’s great to make a buck off your unwanted wardrobe, there’s a chance you’ll leave the store only one item lighter.

Animal shelters. Sheets, pillows, and towels can be a huge help to pets in shelters. Find a shelter near you and call ahead to confirm what types of bedding or linens they’re able to accept.

Right at your door. Some organizations will schedule monthly or on-demand pick-ups in residential areas. Simply pack up a box or two and put them at your door or curb at the designated date and time. Give Back Box provides free shipping labels so you can pack any unwanted clothes or household items into any cardboard box, attach the label, and it’ll get sent to the nearest Goodwill. Big Brother Big Sister offers curbside pick-up. Simply find the dates when BBBS will be in your area and prepare boxes for pick-up at your curb or front entrance.

Farewell party favors. If you’re reducing your load in advance of a move, you’re gonna have one last hurrah before you go, so give it a second purpose. Put a (kind of dull, but super practical) spin on party favors with all the random odds and ends that you don’t want to move, but aren’t worth selling: Tupperware, cleaning supplies, and that random drawer full of pens and Post-it notes. Tell everyone to take as much as they want and it’s a win-win—they score freebies and the landfill is spared some usable items. You’ll end up as the host or hostess with the leastest…in a good way.

Plumbing Repairs, Including Replacing Faucets by Handy Giant

Handy Giant technicians can assist with a variety of minor plumbing repairs, including fixing a leaky faucet and installing a new toilet.

Replacing a Faucet

Faucets contain a number of working parts that deliver water, including a spout, handles, lift rod, aerator, water inlets, mixing chamber, and cartridge. From screws and washers to supply nuts and aerators, correctly installing a faucet can sometimes prove too difficult or tedious. A Commercial Handyman can help out by installing the faucet for you. Using your chosen faucet style, our technician will do the hard part of removing the old and installing the new faucet and making sure it works correctly.

Sink Installation

A new sink can dramatically affect the look and feel of a room. For the kitchen, many homeowners opt for the practicality and elegance of a stainless steel sink, which not only looks great but makes cleaning up hassle free. For bathrooms, a stylish or attractive sink can give the room a look of elegance some homeowners may have not thought possible.

While a new sink can vastly improve the look and feel of a kitchen or bathroom, a new sink can be challenging for many home owners to accomplish on their own. At times, some homeowners opt for an expensive contracting service to perform sink installation, but there’s another way. Instead of going with a costly contractor, give the technicians at Commercial Handyman a call. Our experienced craftsmen bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to every job, and they’ll be happy to assist in installing your chosen sink in your kitchen or bathroom.

For new sinks or sink repairs, count on the professionals at Commercial Handyman services to assist with your building plumbing needs.

Drain Repair

A clogged drain can make any of the plumbing fixtures inoperable. Whether you have a sink that doesn’t drain properly or a shower that holds water for too long, a Commercial Handyman can assist. Sometimes drain repair needs can be solved relatively quickly by an experienced handyman. At other times, however, portions of a drain may need to be disassembled, examined, and cleared before being replaced. In some cases, a handyman may determine that a replacement part is necessary (like a tailpiece, reducer, or PVC trap) to ensure normal operation for your drain. Call a Commercial Handyman representative today to discuss repair options.

Toilet Repair by Handy Giant

A broken or malfunctioning toilet can render your bathroom practically unusable.

Toilets have several parts and mechanisms that are essential to their effective operation, and a defect with any of these parts can make a toilet inoperative. Common toilet malfunctions include,

  • The flush handle and its chain have disconnected, making the toilet unflushable.
  • Toilet tank continuously fills with water, causing tremendous water waste.
  • A partial flush, when a toilet does not flush completely.
  • Tank fills too slowly, delaying the time it takes to flush.

There problems are quite common, and while they are certainly a nuisance for a homeowner, they can be fixed with the right tools and expertise. Commercial Handyman professionals can assist with most toilet repair needs. If you’re experiencing one of the problems listed above or a similar issue, give Commercial Handyman Services a call and a technician will be dispatched to attend to your toilet repair needs.

Toilet Installation

Sometimes, a faulty toilet cannot be repaired, and some homeowners simply prefer to update their bathroom with a new toilet. At other times, toilets, made from a combination of several types of clay, can chip and break, making them hazardous to use. Toilet removal and installation can be a laborious task for many homeowners, especially those who don’t have much knowledge of plumbing and their home’s water valves.
If you’ve chosen and acquired your new toilet but need help with the installation our technicians can assist with installing your new toilet and removing the old one. Give Commercial Handyman Services a call today and we’ll arrange a time that suits your schedule to visit your building and remove the current toilet and install the new one. That way, you won’t have to worry about shutting off your toilet’s water supply, correctly removing your current toilet, and disposing of your former toilet once the new one is installed.With Commercial Handyman Services, the hard work is taken care of and you’re left with a new and improved bathroom.
