Destination: Back to Campus {Plus #StudentLife Hack Contest & Twitter Party}

I lived at home, with my parents, while pursuing a post-secondary education so I didn’t need to worry about purchasing such items as living room, kitchen and bedroom furniture, all the accessories, and everything needed to outfit a kitchen.

However, our son and daughter did not live at home and were both faced with setting up an apartment. Fortunately, they both had roommates, which helped make an overwhelming task become a bit more manageable.

Between two, three or four people, you can usually beg or borrow some of the larger items like a table, bed or sofa. Dad and Mom, Aunt Milly and Uncle Fred are often more than willing to give you their cast-offs.

That just leaves you with the smaller items. Sure, some of those may also be donated, but invariably you will need to buy some items.

Preparing your own food is a new and exciting experience. It’s fun to explore different recipes and impress your taste buds! But, getting all the supplies necessary to operate a functioning kitchen can often be a challenge.
