Time To Stock Up For College

Back-to-school shopping season is officially here. With fall right around the corner, colleges are reopening the campuses soon. Especially for incoming college freshmen, moving into dormitories comes with a whole host of lifestyle changes. Given the size of an average college dorm room, there is not much space to store anything but the essentials. The following list can relieve some of the stress in advance of move-in day.

Desk Organizer

No matter how small your dorm room turns out to be, it is guaranteed to have a desk for each student. However, that desk might not be as big as the ones that you have at home. As such, organization is paramount. SimpleHouseware Mesh Desk Organizer can save more space than you ever imagined. This desk organizer has several compartments, including a double tray and 5 upright sections. One of the trays is a sliding drawer with 3 compartments. You may store small items such as a calculator, pens and sticky notes. The only part that needs to be assembled is the plastic tabs when you receive the package. They can secure all parts together. The rubber bottoms can avoid slippage.

Twin XL Bedding Sets

Unlike high school, college can make you exhausted. If you don’t want to pull unintentional all-nighters, you should make sure to choose the right bedding. A Twin XL mattress is standard for the majority of residence halls. But you should double-check the size of your dorm room bed before investing in bedding. If you do find yourself stuck with the extra-long twin, then the Intelligent Design Raina Comforter Set is fabricated with ultra-soft brushed microfiber. The geometric silver printing matches all room styles. The package comes with a comforter, a sham, and 2 decorative pillows. Since students will be busy with school work, you may not have much time to wash everything by hand. This comforter set can be machine watched, which makes it easy to care for. Just make sure never to bleach it.

Five Star Spiral Notebooks

Even though computers and other electronic devices have evolved into mandatory tools for college students, a lot of professors still require students to take notes in physical notebooks. We all know that technology can be distracting. Taking notes by hand can improve students’ active listening, comprehension of class material and retention. High-quality notebooks are indispensable for good students. I have been using Five Star Spiral Notebooks since the first day of school and have always been impressed with their quality. Five Star is selling a 6-pack notebook with assorted colors and offering an $8 discount. You can prepare one notebook for each of your class. Every notebook contains 100 college ruled sheets and one divider with 2 pockets that allows you to store handouts. The plastic front cover is water-resistant. All of the notebooks that I used 10 years ago are still in good condition.

Writing Essentials Kit

Of course, having a good notebook isn’t enough to guarantee an A. To prepare for class, you also need ballpoint pens, highlighters, pencils, erasers and more. You want something that is water-resistant, permanent, fade-resistant, and smooth. Prismacolor’s Writing Essentials Kit save you time on shopping around for pens. All pieces are from Sharpie, Paper Mate, and Expo. Everything you need is included in this kit: 2 permanent markers, 1 dry erase marker, 3 highlighters, 6 ballpoint pens, 1 gel pen, 2 felt pens, 3 mechanical pencils and 2 erasers. Prismacolor’s Writing Essentials Kit always prepares you to write down any ideas or note. Taking notes with good instruments can keep you away from disorganized, wordy, overwhelming, and insufficient notes.

These Cookies Make Christmas Great Again

In the next two weeks, you will find yourself in plenty of situations in which you are expected to bring cookies. You have your office Christmas party, your neighborhood Christmas party, your church Christmas party and eventually whatever you do with your family on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

You have a few options. You could do the bare minimum: Bring store bought cookies. You could take it up a notch: Make so-called “slice and bake” cookies. Or you could go all out and impress your coworkers, friends and family members with fun styled cookies.

This pack of 3 festive cookie cutters includes everything you need to make this the most patriotic Christmas ever. It comes with one cookie cutter in the likeness of President Donald Trump. It comes with one cookie cutter in the shape of the GOP elephant symbol. And it comes with one cookie cutter in the outline of good ol’ U.S. of A.

The set of 3 cookie cutters sells on Amazon for $11.99. And if you have Amazon Prime, you will get it delivered to you in just two days—plenty of time for all your holiday needs.

In addition to making cookies yourself, these cookie cutters have great gift potential, either as a stocking stuffer or as a gag White Elephant gift.

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? Even if you have, there might be people on your list for whom you still aren’t sure what to get.

Recently, we reviewed the new oCuddle shoulder massager from the wellness company Naipo. Like Parade.com, which put it #2 on their list of Best Christmas Gifts Under $100, we found it to be an ideal present for those in your life who need a little extra comfort.

oCuddle Neck and Back Massager — $59.99

Spending a few minutes getting a neck and shoulder massage from the oCuddle is akin to getting a nice warm hug. This time of year, with colder weather and earlier sunsets, oftentimes a little warmth can do all the difference in relieving anxiety and depression and helping you get through the day.

Unlike the cookie-cutter massagers out there on the market, the oCuddle is specifically designed to fit all body shapes and sizes. Its adjustable straps ensure the perfect fit, whether you are a petite young woman or a big burly man. The two 4-fingered massage nodes feel like real human fingers, and at $60, the oCuddle is much more economical than ponying up for a real massage anytime you start to feel tense or stressed out. Furthermore, it features two levels of so-called FocalHeat technology to relieve aches and pains better than a human could.

WATCH Our Review of Naipo’s New oCuddle Massager:

In this age of health and well-being, now is as good a time as ever to familiarize yourself with the new-ish player in the market. As part of a “Black Friday Carnival” promotion, Naipo is running a variety of deals on the oCuddle, plus their other massage products:

Ways To Dry Or Humidify Your House

Humidity levels in your house are related to the comfort you experience. Keeping the humidity levels between 30 and 50% can reduce maintenance and help you stay healthy. High humidity can result in wet stains on walls and ceilings, moldy closets and bathrooms, and musty odor. People with allergies and asthma are in danger when dust mites thrive in an environment with too much humidity. Low humidity can result in dry skin, scratchy throats and noses, hardwood floor separation and warping, and loosening drawers. Body moisture evaporates quickly when the house is too dry. Here are some ways to remedy humidity problems.

DampRid Hanging Bag

Living in the damp house isn’t just uncomfortable, but mold and tiny pests can also cause illness and structural damage. Dampness develops in the absence of proper ventilation. You should do something if you feel excessively damp. There are a lot of factors that cause dampness in your house. For instance, maybe you have too many plants around or are fond of boiling or cooking with the lids off the pans. Reducing the number of plants or cooking with pans covered is never enough to lower the humidity level in the house. DampRid Hanging Bag works as a dehumidifier but no electricity is needed. DampRid’s crystals absorb the excess moisture that causes damp-feeling fabrics and musty odor in the air and leave a light, pleasurable scent in the house. You can hang it in your storage areas, bathrooms, laundry rooms, cabin, car or wherever moisture is a problem. Each DampRid hanging moisture absorber packets includes three packs. I replace them every two months. After using them for a month, I hardly ever find any pesky bugs in my apartment.

DampRid FG60FS Moisture Absorber

Don’t like the idea of hanging the DampRid Bag on the wall or around in the house? DampRid FG60FS Moisture Absorber is another option. Similar to DampRid Bag, DampRid FG60FS Moisture Absorber can also stale musty odors by trapping excess moisture. It is designed to reduce the growth of mold and mildew. The only difference is it is refillable, which is highly economical. It is ideal to use in small and enclosed spaces such as basements, closets, and bedrooms.

Everlasting Comfort Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier

Leaking humidity in the house can result in serious health consequences especially in the winter time. Your eyes can get very dried and irritated, while skin can get flaky and itchy when they are exposed in an environment with low humidity. You may catch a cold or get the flu because the mucous membrane lining your respiratory tract has been inflamed and dried out. For one, you might want to buy more houseplants. But as a second step, you should get a humidifier. Everlasting Comfort Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier is your best long-term solution because the water supply is constant. Everlasting Comfort Ultrasonic Humidifier can maintain humidity levels above 43% so that your skin will not feel too dry or irritated. It features a 6L tank with a powerful mist output. You don’t have to refill it frequently. When the air humidifier is running out of water, it shuts off automatically so that the machine will not be damaged. I believe a lot of readers love essential oils. This humidifier has a built-in essential oil tray, where you can enjoy the aroma from your favorite essential oils. Everlasting Comfort Ultrasonic Humidifier is affordable to everyone because it does not require costly filters. It features a unique filter-less design, which is very economical and sustainable.
