Moving into a dorm requires planning.

College moving season will soon be here, and students all over the country are making shopping lists for this big occasion.

Number one on all college kids' list will invariably be a computer, according to CBS News. Whether it's the must-have Mac Notebook or a desktop PC, every student will need one of these before heading off to campus. Other electronics essentials include an alarm clock, digital camera, ear buds, surge protectors and extensions cords.

Dorm room essentials for every college student starts off with comfortable bedding, CBS News reported. Students should also bring along a desk lamp, hand vacuum, hangers and a full-length mirror. Space savers are also something no one should ever forget.

Flip flops are a must for any student living in a dorm. They will also want to bring a shower caddy and laundry basket, CBS News said. No dorm room would complete without a mini fridge and a microwave.

If all of this stuff is too much to fit into a car, students should consider using a portable storage container. All they have to do is pack it up and it will meet them at their dorm.ADNFCR-3450-ID-19904312-ADNFCR
