10 Dorm Room Un-necessities But Wanties
Sometimes I truly believe the things we don’t need are the things we need the most. Then I just realize I am trying to make something that doesn’t make sense into a quote and additionally a bad excuse for frivolously spending my money.
Regardless, my dorm room would be a lot better with these things…need or not need.
1. Bed Tent
When there’s a bed tent involved, it’s hard to tell who the creepy roommate is. The person you are hiding from in your bed tent? Or the person who just zipped themselves into a bed tent.
Retail Price: $185.70
2. Ice Maker
Here’s a recipe for Hunch Punch:
1 Gallon of Everclear
1 Gallon of Hawaiin Punch
Fruit (cubed watermelon in the summer)
Couple of Liters of Sprite Optional.
Mix wherever you have the room to mix almost 3 gallons of booze cocktail. The end.
And here is the portable Ice Maker you should have when making the hunch punch because no one, no one, likes a flat iceless room temperature mixed drink of any kind.
Retail Price: $271.36
3. Xbox, any year
Until you have enough money saved up for the upcoming new Xbox ($499 so keep saving) the current one isn’t so bad. The current one isn’t so bad. The current one isn’t so bad. Says the student with no money who wants the new Xbox…
Retail Price: $199.99
4. Mini Kegorator
When you have enough money for food and a mini fridge, but want a Kegorator instead.
Retail Price: $299.99
5. Glowstick Party Cups
No one needs these. And because no one ever needs these, no one ever has these. Which makes you kind of cooler for having something that no one has ever had. Even if no one has ever wanted to have it.
6. The Clapper
Because when you are drunk in a 5×5 foot dorm room, the lamp is still too far away.
Retail Price: $29.99
7. Paro The Healing Robot Seal
Before you get all “That’s a freaking stuffed animal, Meghan”…note that according to its maker, Japanese company AIST. he was created to provide the benefits of animal therapy – reduced stress, emotional stimulation – to people in hospitals and other environments where a real-life pet wouldn’t be allowed. So if you’re missing your pup or kitty back at home, and are kind of weird and friendless, get yourself a Paro.
Retail Price: $59.99
8. Beach Window Curtain
This seems like such a cute great idea. And maybe it will be great. Until you realize that the only thing more depressing than being in a cinder block dorm room no where near the beach, is having a fake drawing of the beach hanging on your wall. I still say get it, and I’ll just refer to it as your “you wish” curtains.
Retail Price: $45.00
9. Roku Streaming Projector
Hey guess what. we’re actually giving this away in our newest BIGWORDS.com sweepstakes along with nine Amazon $50 gift cards. The projector is rad because it not only can stream all those very legal movies off of your computer that you clearly paid for through iTunes and Amazon, but computer or no computer, with a wifi internet connection you also have access to your Netflix account and can project those movies anywhere.
10. FlipAutomatic Book Page Turner
These mechanical page turners activate through pressing 2 switches, one for turning a page forward and another for turning back a page….
Just kidding. And really?
