Freshers week is upon us and that means it’s time to start grabbing those last minute essentials… and we’re talking essentials, essentials, not just booze and a lifetime supply of pot noodles!
We know there is a lot to think about before heading off to university and it’s easy to forget those key items you rely on mum and dad to have in the house! So, check out these essentials available to grab on Click and Collect! No need to laze around at home waiting for your parcels…there will be plenty of time for that once university starts!
It’s time to let go of the Groovy chick and spiderman bed spreads and get yourself some grown-up sheets! Be sure to check out Wilko’s homeware section for quality designs at a reasonable price! Top Tip: Buy more than one…drying sheets in student accommodation isn’t always easy, plus, breakfast, lunch, dinner and last nights make-up are bound to create a few stains!
Only just mastered beans on toast and those tricky scrambled eggs? Don’t be the butt of the joke and get ahead with Lakeland’s cooking for 1 or 2. This cookbook has over 50 easy to make recipes with those all needed hints and tips! Cooking for yourself at uni can be one of the downfalls, so make this a perfect excuse to grab your new roommate and make a dish for two!
I know what you’re thinking … PJs? I’ve got loads of those! However, pyjamas that you feel comfortable in are a must-have. Meeting new people in your 2013 summer club t-shirt that’s just that little bit too tight can make you just that little bit more nervous. Feel relaxed and confident in Marks & Spencers comfy floral PJ bottoms, perfect for sleeping and for lounging in your new home!
For the gentlemen we love these Marks & Spencer cotton checked PJ bottoms!
Probably the most essential item to take to uni…no one should experience the pain of loosing work hours before a deadline! Be smart and don’t rely on technology! Always have a back-up on your memory stick. Curry’s offer great ones to C+C so you can have the right sized stick for those precious files.
Feel at home with some great speakers for your room! Cushions and fake flower ornaments might not do the job, so play some of your favourite tunes to help get you settled! Top Tip: To avoid complaints from the neighbours try to keep the speakers relatively small, you don’t need a HI-FI system to create an impact!
