This is a must-have list of household items that will prepare you for all those small everyday challenges and make your live much easier.
For some of you this list might seem a bit silly, but I bet you surely don’t have all the items listed here and at some point in your academic year you will desperately need on them. So, without any further ado, here we go!
In all sorts of situations this little invention from the 15th century will save your a lot of suffering. Make sure you buy one with a changeable tip (and magnetic, so you will not have to worry about screws falling on the ground).
Imagine this scenario: your bath tub is clogged and you really want to take a shower. If you don’t have a plunger you’ll have a lot of extra stress in the morning, which can't be healthy. This little tool can do wonders and save your day!
EXTRA LIGHT BULBS
You never want a light bulb to burn in the middle of the night while you still have 20 more pages left of course reading to finish. Either have an extra light bulb, or switch to your ebook reader.
Keep an old pair of trousers or an item of clothing that you don’t like anymore. Just take it along with a knife and make yourself some cleaning cloths.
A CAN AND A BOTTLE OPENER
My housemate called me a ”future mass murderer” when she saw me open a beans can with a knife. Just spare the extra thrill and buy yourself one for your own good!
FLASHLIGHT AND BATTERIES
For power cuts and other unfortunate events (like digging a hole in the woods at night for whatever reason).
Because you can’t just have that amazing new tee stacked up in the drawer.
ALL PURPOSE CLEANER
Living with other students in the same house surely is fun (peer pressure, remember?) but it has its downsides as well: like dirty kitchens, living areas, bath rooms...
FIRST AID KIT
Worst case scenario! Just in case à for small injuries only. Otherwise, consult a doctor.
DUCT TAPE or BLUETACK
I’ll tell you, these are miracle workers. You can repair water leaks, stick posters to your bedroom walls, play with them when you’re bored...
Another just in case item. Or maybe a small fire blanket that you can attach on the kitchen wall to come in handy if things run out of control.
