Back-to-School College Haul

Back-to-school College Haul | College dorm room essentials

Welcome back! Today’s post is one of my favorites strictly because of the cover photo. Isn’t that a beautiful flat lay? Also I just discovered that berry/mauve color is complementary to my mint green that I use and I’m kinda obsessed. Anyways, now that my mini excited rant is over, lets get on to this awesome haul!

Today’s post is short & sweet so I hope you don’t mind.

I don’t know about y’all but I love to watch and read anything back-to-school related. I also love watching and reading haul videos and posts. Combine back-to-school with hauls and I’m sold.

A little update…

As you’re reading this, I’m in the midst of packing up my life and moving back to USC for my junior year.

*slightly dying inside*

First off, how do I have so much stuff. I swear I did not bring this much stuff back with me when I moved in May. But here we are again, three months later, with two full cars stuffed to the brim with unnecessary items.

Just kidding, they’re necessary. I mean six coffee mugs is a must for one single person, right?

I’m thrilled to see what my junior year has to offer, and I already have so many ideas for posts and videos it’s not even funny. OH, and don’t even get me started on football season, flannels, and Thanksgiving.

Back to the post

We’re switching things up a bit in this post because it was way easier for me to film a video than take pictures of everything I bought. I’m trying to step up my YouTube game, so this is a start.  Hope you enjoy the video!

This year my focus is less of school supplies and unnecessary dorm items, and more of kitchen and dorm/college must-haves.

I’m no longer on the meal plan so a lot of the items I bought this year are for me and all of my meal prep needs. Pots, pans, bowls, baking sheets, utensils. I have it all, and I’m stoked to bring some meal prep posts to the blog!

I also couldn’t pass up a cute coffee mug and some fancy pillows. My dorm room this year is going to be ~magical~ and I can’t wait to get a dorm tour up as soon as everything is situated.

If you’re moving back to college soon, good luck and don’t let it stress you out too much! When are you headed back and where are you living this year? On campus? Off campus? At home?

  • My Sprinkle of Prep

    I love to watch and read back to school hauls and I don’t know why but I just love to see how everyone styles there dorm. There is so many creative ways you can make the space your own and I just love what people can turn a little dorm into a home. I also can’t believe I also will be a junior this year, I swear just yesterday I was scrambling to get prepared for my first year of college.
