One of the absolute best parts about starting university for me was the preparation. I spent the whole summer trawling the shops with my Mumma choosing all the bits and bobs me and my brother would need to go off to halls in the October (yes, we both went in the same year, my poor parents had to fork out for double of everything).
Now sadly I have no such joyful shopping trip ahead of me so I thought what better way to torture myself with all the OMG WAS THAT REALLY FOUR YEARS AGO than to have a browse online and find a bunch of treats I'd buy this year if I was heading off again.
FYI Ikea is obvs the go to place but Wilko and Asda do some really good deals for students stocking up and don't forget to check out places like Etsy for some one offs. Gotta make that freshers room Instagram worthy and all that.
