Getting Ready for College

Ashley and her loot!
Mid-August marks the start of kids returning (or starting) at college.  While Allie & Ashley don't head to Boston University until September, many of their friends have already left for college.
Instead, we headed to the stores to get supplies. Allie already went through the dorm room supply list last year, but Ashley needed to get stocked up.
Ashley had a list that was a mile long for her dorm room - towels, pillows, XL sheets, comforter, mattress pad, blanket, egg crate mattress, storage containers, closet organizers, hangers, microwave pots, bathrobe, slippers, backpack, trash can, stapler, umbrella, raincoat and more!
There were decisions to be made on color choices, sizes and amounts.  Do I need more hangers?  Should I get 2 or 3 towels?  Do I need washcloths?
At the end of the day, we ticked off most of the list.  Ashley ordered most of her text books and now we need to finish up with some little stuff.  Only three weeks remain before the little birdies leave the nest.
