good stuff for the dorm

A Listmania! list by S.A. "bham" (Southeastern MI USA)
The list author says: "We ordered quite a few things from Amazon for my son's freshman year dorm - some were very successful, others he thought we could do without. Oh well. We traveled across the country by airplane, and were very limited in what we could bring with us. We never could have done it without Amazon. With the two-day air on Amazon Prime, all of our items were delivered simultaneously with our arrival. No one had to store them for us, and the items were there waiting when we got there.

Here is a list of the things that went over big."
