Checklist to Set Up Your Dorm Room Kitchen

Aside from the lamps, rugs and bedding the most important college checklist is The Dorm Room Kitchen! After being the parent of a college student who is now in her Sophomore year, we learned a few things: The dining hall can get old, eating out is expensive and with the right items, dorm room cooking can be a breeze! The first semester we definitely were not equipped in the kitchen department. Yes, I sent dishes, cups, storage containers, a refrigerator and a microwave but, come to find, the items I’m telling you about can make or break a pleasant college eating experience. NO MORE FRESHMAN 15!
