There are hundreds of different candle scents available for you to choose from. Ones that are more floral, fruity, woody, minty, some that are strong, some that are more subtle.

Two large drawers and three smaller ones. You can organize your clothing items in the drawers however you would like. You can put pants, jeans in one, shorts in one, shirts in one, etc.
If you do not think you can fit everything in one set, you can get two of the sets, two of the same or maybe two different ones. Just get what fits your needs and fits your style.
If you also have a closet, then you may not need as much drawer space. However, this black/gray and gold dresser set is stylish, sleek and can fit in multiple spaces and can be moved as needed.
This next item doubles as a room decor item and storage item. This is a square ottoman that the lid opens up and you can store various items in. You can store extra blankets, books, sheets, etc. in the ottoman.
No one would know what you have stored there unless they open up the lid. Plus, you can get it black, grey, tan, white, whatever color works best for your apartment.
My roommate has one similar in black and she has used it for storage since our first year in the dorms. She has stored items like shoes, cards, games, etc. in there over the years. It comes in handy when you have items that you need to store, but also need easy access to.
Trying to find the best way to organize your shoes can be a struggle. No matter how you organize it, they get messed up again shortly after you wear a pair and just throw them back in your closet or back where you keep them.
I have struggled to keep my shoes organized for years. This is why this shoe shelf organizer will come in extremely handy. This can be used in your closet to keep your shoes organized.

However, you could also put it behind a chair, different furniture items in your apartment and use the shelves for other decor or storage. You could use the space under the shelves for a large basket or trunk or such.
The shelves are meant to save space, so take advantage of that and use the shelves wisely.
34. Bean Bag Chair
You are going to want someone comfy to sit and relax in your new college apartment. This is why this next item will be a huge hit in your apartment.
It is a giant bean bag chair that you can use to sit in but could also be used to sleep in. This will be great for guests to use in case you do not have another space for them to sleep in or they want to sleep somewhere other than a couch to sleep on.
You could also use it for naps or just to sit back and watch tv or relax. This comes in a variety of colors, so you have many options to choose from. This is a more pricey item on the list, but it is worth it.
It has a variety of uses and can be used after moving out of that apartment. It can be used for years and provides comfort and relaxation.
In your new college apartment, you are going to need a space to do all of your classwork. You may want to get a desk for that space. This is why this computer desk with storage may be the perfect item to purchase for your apartment.
It has two large spaces for you to place extra notebooks, textbooks, papers, folders, etc. when you are not using them. Plus the top of the desk is large and gives you plenty of space for your laptop and whatever else you may need to do work.
Plus the marble color makes this desk not only useful but also stylish. Mix the marble with the gold legs, this desk will look great in any college apartment.
The bean bag chair is probably not the only seating option you are going to want in your apartment. This is why this cozy saucer chair is another great option for furniture in your apartment.
It is still comfortable for you to sit in, but it does not take up as much space. It is also not as likely for you to get too comfortable and fall asleep.
Plus, the chair can be moved easily from room to room or around a room where it is needed. It can also be folded up and stored as needed. You can use it to watch tv, read, for guests, to do work, or to just relax.
Plus with the variety of colors, you can not go wrong with this chair.
In my apartment, we have a dish that we use to keep candy on a side table in our living room. It is pretty handy because we just put candy in and refill it as needed.
Then we can have candy when we want some and it is also there for guests if they would like some. Having a jar like that in your apartment is a great idea.
This clear jar can be easily placed on a counter or table and can be filled with whatever you would like. You could put candy, cookies or whatever you would like.
Then once it is empty, you could refill it with the same thing or something different. It is great not only for guests, but also a quick and easy snack for you whenever you need it.
Countertops can get crowded and disorganized easily. They can get filled with spices, oils, salt, sugar, etc. It can be difficult to keep it all organized.
However, this next college apartment decor item may help keep your countertops organized. This device has two shelves for you to place whatever you would like on them.
You can keep common spices on one, maybe some napkins or other items on the other. You can use it in other places than your kitchen.
You could use it for your bathroom counter as well if it is crowded. You could get one for your kitchen and one for your bathroom. It never hurts to have multiple items for organization – it will pay off in the long run.
41. Throw Blanket
There are some items that are just classic decor items that should be in any home or apartment. A throw blanket is one of those items. I have a gray throw blanket in my apartment that lays on a chair in the corner of our living room.
I often use this blanket as I am watching tv or doing work in our living room. It is not too heavy or light and is just right for relaxing. This is why a throw blanket would be great to have in your living room.
It can be draped over a couch or chair until it is needed. It does not have to be an expensive or fancy blanket. Just a simple blanket that goes with the colors of your apartment.
Then when you get cold or want to curl up on the couch with a good book or something, you can easily grab the blanket and snuggle up.
42. Throw Pillows
Another classic item that every home or apartment should have is some throw pillows. We have several on our couches in my apartment.
They stay tucked in the corners of our couches and they are used for us to lay on or move to the floor if we need more space. They are of various sizes and colors.
You can choose what kind would fit best in your apartment. You can have one or multiple. Maybe all the same color and size or maybe various colors and sizes.
Whatever vibe you are going for, there are the perfect throw pillows out there for you. They are a must-have in any college apartment.
In my apartment, we have four wine bottles that we painted to spell out the abbreviation for the name of our college. They are placed on top of our cabinets where we keep all of the alcohol bottles.
I think decorative wine bottles are a great decor item and can serve a variety of purposes. This is why these decorative wine bottles would be great in your apartment.
These matte black bottles can be used for flowers, as a centerpiece, you can write on them with chalk. They are also various sizes, which can help create a creative look wherever you decide to place them.
The matte black look is elegant and sleek, which creates a look of elegance in whatever room they are in.
45. Fun Curtains
Do you want a way to keep the sun out of your apartment, but also keep it stylish, then some fun curtains are the way to go. You can get long or short curtains. They can also be a solid color or a fun pattern.
You can put them up in your bedroom or other windows in your apartment. You can keep them all the same or have different ones in each room. Either way, this is a simple way to decorate and add some color and fun to a room.
You could even get black-out curtains if the sun tends to wake you up early in the morning. Whatever way you go, curtains are a great way to decorate your apartment.
If you have a small apartment, then a futon may be a great idea. It may also be good as an option for your living room. It can be a couch then if you have guests staying over it can be turned into a bed.
It is the best of both worlds. It can be a neutral color like black or gray, or it can be a more fun color like pink or green. It all depends on what style you are going for.
This may be a bit on the pricey side of the items on the list, but it is two furniture items in one. So, in the long run, you may be saving money.
47. Potted Plant
If you want to add some green into your apartment, then getting a potted plant is the way to go. They can come in various sizes. They can be tall, short, flowers, or leafy.
You just have to find one that will work best for you and your apartment. If you are worried about taking care of it, then go for a more low-maintenance plant.
If you have more experience then pick whatever one you want. You can get one or multiple plants. Whatever you choose, adding some green to your apartment is always a good decision.
I dream of traveling the world. This is why this next college apartment decor item would be something I would love to have in my apartment. It is wall art that is a giant map of the world.
You will need a good amount of wall space in order to hang this up. So this may be good for above your couch or bed. You could mark off places you have been or you could leave it be.
Either way, it is a good reminder of all the places you could go. I would look at the map as an inspiration to keep working hard and going after what I want. So, if you also want to travel the world, then this is the perfect wall art option for you.
This next college apartment decor item will give your apartment a rustic feel. These are mason jar sconces. They are mason jars filled with flowers and string lights and are attached to wooden boards.
These can be hung up on your walls and add a rustic feel to the apartment. The lights and wire on the jars can be removed to create a different feel.
They are unique and will most likely not be in other college apartments you may visit. So, these decorations will make your apartment unique and different from your friends.
So, if you want to stand out and add a rustic feel, go for these mason jar sconces.
Having a multifunction vase or vases is always something good to have on hand. These modern vases are perfect for that. They are different from the typical glass vases you will typically see.
Plus they are different sizes, so depending on what you need, then you will have one that fits that need. You can use them for flowers or just for decoration.

Final Thoughts on Names to Call Your Girl Best Friend
Friendships are some of the most important relationships we will ever have, therefore, making sure that your bestie has the perfect nickname is very important.
Some friendships are sweet, while others sassy and feisty, but no matter what type of relationship, a nickname should be fitting for both you and your friend (especially because you will be the one calling them said nickname, so you better like it too).
Also, I want to say, using a nickname that is coined “basic” or “overused” doesn’t mean it’s bad. It is a way for you to connect with your friend and it will be meaningful to you and her.
Therefore, even if the nickname is “basic”, it will be more than meets the eye because it bonds the two of you.
If you are struggling or, rather, were struggling to find the perfect nickname, I hope the list above was helpful in finding the perfect nickname or discovering an original one of your own!
No matter what you chose, your girl best friend will love it!

How Can Literature Classes in College Help You in Life
Much of the world’s historical cultures and traditions have been preserved in literary pieces that can be studied to learn about the older ways of life.
Most literary pieces contain encounters filled with various human experiences that help broaden one’s understanding of the world they live in. In a nutshell, studying literature courses can help you learn about various cultures and histories through commentaries, stories, and theories.
But, there’s more. Modern literature programs and classes are usually structured in ways that enable students to absorb a lot more.
This means that today’s literature programs can help students develop several transferable skills like essay writing, critical thinking, and more.
Thus, those students who study literature in college can learn several skills that can later be beneficial to employers. In this article, we will take a closer look at how literature classes in college can help you in life ahead.
But before we jump in, students reading this should also know that certain aspects of taking literature classes can be tough. For example, it is never easy to write great essays without a thorough knowledge of the process.
Thus, to perform better, students need all the help they can get.
Today, several digital platforms help students with their academic work. For example, students can use a top platform like Studyfy for their help write my essay or ‘edit my essay’ services.
Using such services enables students to boost their academic performance while also giving them insights into their essay work.
In no particular order, here are 8 ways literature classes in college can help you in life.
1) You Can Improve Your Communication Skills
One of the best ways of learning to communicate better is through reading more. While studying literature, students need to continually read through various types of text like prose or poetry.
They are also provided with various study notes and are also encouraged to create their own.
Literature classes can also be very interactive and engaging. Most literature programs include discussions, debates, seminars, and more.
Overall, students would be able to learn better communication through more reading, listening, evaluating, and writing.
2) You Will Be Motivated to Weave Your Life’s Story
The main essence of any work of literature is that one can always find a story in them. This is because most literary pieces are created to record various events experienced in one’s body, mind, and surroundings.
And these experienced events are usually recorded as stories. Thus, reading more literary works can help mold the idea of ‘story creation’ early on in students.
And attending literature classes in college helps students understand the know-how of how it can be done.
3) It Can Help Improve Your Evaluation Skills
Studying literature properly is not just about plain and simple reading. But it also has a lot to do with being able to discern what one reads. And learning the art of discernment can improve one’s overall evaluation skills.
Being able to discern and evaluate then goes to help students communicate and write a whole lot better.
And this skill – of reading, evaluating, and understanding – is of paramount importance in the professional world.
4) You Can Become More Articulate
Most literary works are written in different styles because they are written by different people. And the more one reads, the more they would understand the complexities behind different writing styles.
But studying literature in college has more benefits than this.
Throughout one’s literature program, they will be put through various tests to gauge and improve their literary abilities. And one of the main abilities one can work upon is being more articulate.
This means that a good literature student would always include all the details when making any type of argument or point.
5) You Can Become a Better Writer
Yes, the ability to write well depends a lot on one’s imagination and frame of mind. But, to become a great or even good writer, one also needs to do a bit of reading.
This is because, without reading previous works, one will not be able to know the required standards for great pieces of text. And without it, one will not be able to write such that it grips their readers.
In the professional world, writers are some of the most well-paid workers. This is because they can convert heaps of information into understandable and engaging texts.
And this can help a business connect with its audience a whole lot more.
6) You Can Improve Your Interactive & Social Skills
Literature courses and programs are some of the most interactive ones around. Why? Because it involves a lot of discussions, debates, storytelling sessions, and more.
In any literature class, one can always find various types of commentaries and speeches from professors and students alike.
Literature students have the unique opportunity of digging deeper into various subject areas. And the best part is that they can do so with all of their peers together.
Learning such interactive and engagement skills from one’s classroom can help them greatly in their future careers.
7) It Can Improve Your English Skills – Better Grammar, Punctuation, & More
English is not only the most spoken but is also considered a standard language across several international communities. Thus, to grow to greater heights, sooner or later, one needs to brush up on their English skills.
Most literature programs and classes around the world are conducted in English. When one takes up a program in English, they have the opportunity of learning the language usage from the masters.
Thus, learning literature early on in life can profoundly improve one’s overall English skills, which can be crucial for career progression.
8) It Can Teach You Critical Thinking & Broaden Your Horizons
To efficiently power through a literature class or program, one needs to be able to contribute adequately. But one’s contribution is often seen as beneficial when they are also able to communicate their knowledge neatly.
A study of literature can achieve this by making students find various patterns and meanings in texts. Literature from various periods of the world also contains much information about historical cultures and traditions.
It can give a lot of insight to students about how people during different times in history were, what they did, how they thought, and more. This broadens one’s horizons and makes one look at the world in an autobiographical way.
The Bottom Line
There is no doubt that studying literature in college has several benefits for one’s life. But that being said, literature programs can be difficult in terms of learning and scoring higher grades easily.
Students should learn beforehand about all the intricacies and semantics of their desired programs. Doing so would help them know which particular literature program would be the most suitable for them.

48. Mini Projector
This mini projector is a must-have when you are having movie nights with your friends in your dorm room. It is compatible with laptops, smartphones, and TV boxes, so you can project any show or movie through these devices. This product is definitely more useful than just crowding around your computer!
49. Hand Warmers
These warmers are essential for those chilly winter months ahead, especially if you are a student going to college upstate. It can also be used as a power bank to charge your phone, 3 temperature levels ranging from “it’s a little cold outside, I need to keep my hands toasty” to “I just stuck my hands in the snow and I need to regain feeling in them once again.”
This clock looks like the strangest game of Scrabble ever played, but its unique design is a big draw for me! Not only does it look cool, but is still very useful, tracking the time through five-minute intervals. I think it would look perfect on someone’s nightstand in their dorm room.
Final Thoughts on College Packing List
Getting ready to leave for college is an incredibly difficult task because you are essentially leaving behind the life you had always known, at least for a few months, to a brand new environment.
You will become mostly surrounded by people you have never met before and you have to rely on your own decision-making to solve problems that may arise in the upcoming semester.
It may seem very overwhelming and it is easy to become stressed out during this period, especially with the preparations before you leave for college.
You want to make you have everything you need before you are off on your own, which includes your personal care products, electronics, kitchen supplies, and dorm accessories.
Hopefully, this list has helped guide you in choosing the right items to bring!
