Special thanks to Procter & Gamble for sponsoring today’s post and for providing me with many of the items depicted. Partnerships like these allow me to provide readers with helpful tips and advice based on my own experiences and opinions (like how to save money on college supplies).
With four kids, back to school season is an expensive time of year for me. Last year I learned that shopping for a college students takes the back to school checkout total to a whole new level. Since I’m not willing to send my kids off to college without everything they need, I’ve instead found ways to economize. I am not a fan of running around to dozens of stores to score the best deal so instead focus on choosing one or two locations to get the best deals. That way I can save money on college supplies without spending all my time doing it.
Why I Love Bed Bath & Beyond for College Shopping
Unlike back to school shopping for elementary through high school, shopping for college involves a lot of household and personal items. College students need bedding, towels, personal hygiene and grooming products. When they move out of the dorms into an apartment, they need even more household items – furniture, appliances, and kitchen and bathroom items. My go-to store for everything from cookie sheets to pillows is Bed Bath & Beyond so it made sense to start there.
I knew I would find most of what we needed for college life at Bed Bath & Beyond since I’ve bought small appliances, cookware, linens, and decor there for our home. I was thrilled to discover the new Harmon section that includes a broad selection of Procter & Gamble products too! You can buy everything a college student needs for shower time at school.

If you have a daughter, she can even stock up on makeup.
