1.An ombré fleece throw, because this'll make your Ikea couch look put-together and adult-approved, even though we really just want it as a cuddle buddy while watching AHS alone.
2.A clear glass drinkware set that'll save you from yourself if you usually only use mugs. Your proud alumni mug will still be there when it's time for coffee, I promise.
3.A motion-activated LED night light so you don't wake your new roomie up by turning on hall lights every time you need to pee in the middle of the night — or go to the kitchen for some 4 a.m. brownies. That will remain a secret.
4.A Tasty non-stick bakeware set for having all the important tools you need when learning the art of cooking your own meals. One pan + frozen French fries = a very proud new adult.
5.An over-the-door shoe rack, because I'm going to take a wild guess and say you DON'T have a walk-in closet. But we do like to buy shoes and they can't go all over the floor. Plus! You can use it as extra storage if things start to pile up right away (they will).
6.A bed-in-a-bag set that'll make your room look immediately polished while you're still very much on a college student budget. It comes with everything you'll need: a comforter, sheets, pillow cases, and a decorate pillow! Behold: grownup bedding.

8.A cotton storage basket for neatly keeping anything from laundry to towels to just unsightly clutter from interfering with your decorating goals. This is the time we get rid of The Chair.
9.A storage shower curtain, because this'll be your saving grace for organization if you're now the proud new owner of a tiny standing shower. It has ~nine~ mesh pockets to keep everything from your loofah to shampoo off the floor.

11.A set of stylish kitchen utensils that'll encourage you to cook your own meals now that you have all the right ~helpers~. Turns out you *can* eat eggs that aren't from the drive-thru.
12.A wooden square end table so you have a designated area for your remote, books, snacks, whatever, even if your living room is a bit cramped. This'll 100% beat balancing everything on your lap.
13.A quilted mattress pad for easily upgrading your bedding to how you like it at home without having to pay the *price*. This'll make your new bed so comfy, you may have trouble showing up to work...
14.A pair of hanging closet organizers, because the only way to make the most out of limited storage options (hello, one small closet) is to create space that previously didn't exist. Now your bras won't mysteriously disappear.
15.A set of non-stick cookware that'll convince you to just make some pasta and leave the takeout menu ALONE. You're on a budget now! Reward yourself with a pound of parmesan on top.
16.A floating shelf so you can prevent your thoughtful Pinterest-inspired decor from just looking like clutter. Free counter space = naturally clean-looking apartment.
17.A geometric shag area rug for greeting your tired feet with much-needed fluffy relief at the end of a long day. PLUS! It'll make your living room look a little more *upscale* and stifle your steps from getting too loud if you have hardwood floors. Believe me, the people downstairs will thank you.
18.A set of super soft cotton towels, because these'll bring hotel-level luxury right to your own tiny bathroom. Not to mention you'll stall a trip to the laundromat, thanks to buying these in bulk.
19.A two-piece Tasty strainer set that'll help you avoid making messes every single time you attempt your mom's lasagna recipe. The more efficient the process, the more likely you'll be to actually make your own food. Maybe this time you won't even need to call your mom.
20.A set of LED string lights with *handy* clips so you can easily decorate your room before you have time to give up and leave your walls bare. The best part? This won't leave a bunch of holes, like frames and paintings do.
21.A self-adhesive wall hook for never forgetting the most important thing of the day — your keys. Note: calling the locksmith is EXPENSIVE.
22.A velvet floor pillow, because offering extra seating is hard when on a budget and in a tiny living room. These'll let your guests comfortably pop a squat anywhere — and what room can't use an upgrade from some luxe velvet?
23.A powerful mini steamer that'll come to the rescue when you inevitably don't have an ironing board. You can't ship all your dry cleaning to your mom, so meet your new best friend.
24.A stainless steel flatware set so you don't spend the next year eating with plastic forks. Think of the TURTLES (and the constant expense).
