Back To School Shopping For Your Apartment

It’s that time of year again for students to wake up from the lazy days of summer and start planning their return to school, including the inevitable back-to-school shopping. Before you head back to campus, here’s a back-to-school shopping guide for apartment renters.

Back to School Supplies for the Apartment

Calendars: Every student should keep a calendar handy in their apartment so they are sufficiently prepared for big exams and project deadlines. Whether you prefer tabletop, wall, or fridge calendars, there are many options out there to ensure you stay on top of your schoolwork!

Clothing: Besides the library, your apartment is where you’ll be doing the most studying, especially at 1st Lake apartments that offer great extra office space. When working in your apartment, we recommend wearing comfortable clothing like t-shirts, sweatshirts, lounge pants, and slippers to make studying more enjoyable!

Groceries: As a student, your busy schedule may not allow time for cooking or grocery shopping every day, so make sure you keep your apartment stocked! A few groceries to consider buying include caffeinated and non-caffeinated beverages to keep you going and hydrated, healthy study snacks for a boost, and frozen meals for a quick dinner after a long day of getting work done.

Storage Compartments: The more back-to-school supplies you acquire, the more places you’ll need to store them. Separate containers for your desk or study table are perfect for organizing writing utensils and tools. Portable storage containers are really useful for moving heavy textbooks from room to room, as you might find more inspiration in the living room than the dining room depending on the day.

So there you have it, some basics to have around your apartment for when school’s back in session. With all these back-to-school shopping essentials and the comforts of 1st Lake Properties, you’re sure to have a successful semester back in school!
