What's One Thing You Didn't Think You'd Need In College, But Really Do?

Tell us what you can't live without in the dorm room!

By now, most of you crazy college kids have been at school for a little over a month. You're back in the swing of pulling all-nighters to study, putting on a brave face for every dining hall visit, and of course, PARTYING ALL DAY ERR'YDAY.

But there's a good chance that while you were getting ready to go to college, you forgot to buy a few things that you're now realizing you really needed.

For example, maybe you're thinking now would be a good time to get one of these Brita water pitchers your mom added to the college registry, but you never thought you'd want.

Perhaps you want a drying rack, so you have an easy place to keep those wet clothes you don't want to put in the dryer.

Or you'd like to have a coffee maker like this single-serve Keurig in your dorm room, so you don't have to spend money on crappy dining hall coffee.

Whatever it may be, we want to know! Tell us the one thing you didn't realize you'd need in college, but totally do and why for the chance to be featured in a future BuzzFeed Community post!
