Bed Bath & Beyond to outfit your home

MS - Millions of students will head off to college this year which means this year's crop of high school grads (and their parents) are brimming with anticipation, excitement ... and a touch of apprehension.

Soon they'll be thinking about outfitting an entire dorm room, cramming all their worldly possessions into a fuel efficient hybrid and then fitting it into a room the size of a closet.

"Simple steps can make the transition to home sweet dorm simple, easy and stress free," commented Bari Fagin of Bed Bath & Beyond.

"Tuition may have increased over time but the size of the average dorm room has not. Planning in advance and using some basics tools will help make getting to college a lot easier than it was to get into college."

Fagin offers the following tips for both students and parents to help get you started:
- Check it Off. Use a comprehensive checklist to figure out what you need to buy and what you can take from home. Bedbathandbeyond.com offers a checklist broken down by category.

- Split it Up. Reach out to your roommate before you shop to decide who is bringing what so you avoid bringing (and buying) duplicates.

- Check it Out. Before you shop, check with your college or university on the size of your mattress. Is it twin or twin extra long? It would be a shame to buy the perfect sheets and then find out they are too small.

- Don't Drive Yourself Nuts! Gone are the days of bungee cording the trunk closed. Bed Bath & Beyond stores offer a unique "Pack & Hold" service that eliminates the hassle of packing the car.

Simply shop at a store near home and then pick the items up at the store near college or choose to have the items shipped directly to your school.

- Don't Forget to Make Your Bed! When you get to your dorm room cover your mattress with a mattress protector, a quilted mattress pad, a feather bed, and finally new sheets and a comforter. You'll feel like you're sleeping at a four star hotel, not the freshman quad.

- Don't Panic. As prepared as you are chances are you will forget something. Relax ... bedbathandbeyond.com offers a college/store locator that makes it easy to find the store closest to your college to get the things most likely forgotten ... like hangers, extension cords and surge protectors.

- Get Help! With over 890 stores, the "Shop for College" experts at Bed Bath & Beyond are there to help you let them. Can't get to a store? Visit "survival 101" on the Shop for College tab at bedbathandbeyond.com for expert help.

After all, getting into college was the hard part, shopping for it is the fun part!.
