Getting ready to send our first born off to another state for college is an anxiety-ridden, emotional experience for this mom.
My girl? Not so much.
She has been super excited about every part of getting ready to launch out on her own.
We went to Dollar General with a gift card they provided to see what DG Dorm Essentials  we could pick up, and she had the nerve to not even get weepy a single time!
We snagged these self adhesive hooks for only $1, which makes them 25 cents each! These are great for a dorm room since nailing anything into the walls isn't allowed.
Next, we picked up some disinfectant wipes for quick clean ups around the sink in her room. I was so proud when she went for the more economical store brand!
We also got a sewing kit for only $1 and a few other items.
And before long, she had everything she needed and was itching to hit the road and start her brand new life!
Me? Not so much.
But, like a good mama, I went ahead and dropped her off instead of forcing her to get back in the van and go home with me.
If you have a college student in your life, a Dollar General gift card is a super useful gift to let them prepare for moving into the dorm. And be sure to like Dollar General on Facebook  and follow Dollar General on Twitter  to keep up with special offers and new inventory.
