University students – Appliance buying guide
I wish a guide like this was available when I first stepped onto the university campus. Whether you are a freshman or returning student, you definitely need a few appliances to help you store and cook the tons of food (and drink) your inquisitive mind requires for fuel. However, because the small size of dorm rooms usually limit the size and amount of appliances you can bring, you need to make smart choices without sacrificing too much on functionality. ConsumerReports.com has compiled a list of some essential, space-saving and affordable items you may want to obtain. Realize that different universities will have a restricted items list, so keep them in mind when shopping.
