Air Purifier

With the new Delta variant of COVID out on the prowl, you should not only be protecting your peace but your immune system. Though some colleges are allowing students back on campus with mandated vaccinations, your health is first and foremost and you can keep it in check with an air purifier. Clear your space of any lingering coughs, sneezes, or unwanted health disturbances by adding this to your cart. ($119, OCM)

Underbed Storage

We all know that college dorms don’t give us that much space for all of our clothes, and on top of that, sending clothes to and from home is a quick way to kill your wallet. Where are you supposed to put all of your off-season clothes? Never fear – the underbed storage bag is here! Stuff your large sweaters or short shorts into this fabric-lined bag and slide it under your bed to make extra room for the more seasonal ensembles. ($17.95, OCM)
