Dorm Essentials for Eating in Your College Dorm Room

You're going to be eating in your college dorm room more than you thought you would. Before moving into your college dorm room, you probably thought you would eat every meal in the college cafe and were possibly wondering if your meal plan was large enough. However, you may find that you end up eating one or less meals a day in the college cafe. It can be because the college cafe food isn't that great, but more than likely it's going to be for the simple reason that you're busy and your schedule doesn't match up with the cafeteria's. Below you'll find some cheap dorm supplies for eating in your college dorm room that you want to make sure are in your college dorm checklist as you head off to college.

Microwave Bowls and Food Covers - If you're eating in your dorm room, you're going to have a dorm microwave. Getting takeout every night can get expensive, so you want to make sure you have a microwave and cheap dinner and breakfast options such as oatmeal, macaroni and cheese, and ramen. For these dorm essentials you want to make sure you have some microwavable bowls to warm up your food and eat out of, and you also want to make sure you have a microwave food cover for your plate. You have studying to do - you don't want to spend time cleaning up splattered spaghetti sauce or soup out of your microwave.

21 Piece Dorm Eating Set - You're not going to want to bring glass or ceramic plates to college with you. They're heavy, hard to store and too easy to break. And should those ceramic or glass plates break, the pieces are going to go everywhere and you'll spend a lot of time cleaning up the mess. For dorm eating, plastic is a ideal and great option. These dorm necessities are easy to store and you don't have to worry about them breaking on you. This handy college supplies set has everything you need for eating in your college dorm room - cups, mugs, bowls, plates, and even a serving bowl for potato chips. Simply add some silverware and you're set for eating in your dorm room.

Filtration Pitcher - Bottled water can get pretty expensive when you're in college. Yet you don't want to drink the tap water in the residence hall. It may seem like those are the only two options, however they're not. Simply add a water pitcher with a filter. It will save you a lot of money on bottled water, make your Residence Hall water drinkable, and you can easily fill up a large water bottle to take to class with you. Plus you'll be able to have cold water at all times with this dorm item!

Cookin Caddy - Wondering where to store the plates and silverware you're adding to your college supplies? This cookin caddy conveniently keeps those college supplies right where you want them - on your dorm mini-fridge. This dorm storage solution sits right on top of your mini-fridge so you keep your plates in a convenient spot and don't lose out on dorm room storage in other areas such as your college closet.

Square Folding Table - Along with not having many places to sit in your dorm room, you aren't going to have many surfaces to put things, either. This is especially true for eating in your dorm room. Eating at your dorm desk can be disastrous. You don't want to spill anything on your notes or computer while eating at your dorm desk. The solution? A square folding table. You'll have a nice place to eat and you'll also be able to conveniently store it when not in use so you don't lose out on dorm room storage or move the table from place to place when you need extra walking room. This dorm item folds flat, allowing you to store it behind your dorm dresser, between your dorm dresser and desk, or even under your dorm bed.
