Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer, but for the parents of soon-to-be college students, we’re already thinking about getting them to the dorm room — and all the things they’ll need. Dorm supplies can be expensive, but luckily there are a few ways to save on these essentials, including shopping Memorial Day sales.
You can find significant savings on bedding, bath, and storage for college with incredible Memorial Day sales at retailers like Amazon, The Container Store, Dormify, Target, Pottery Barn Teen, and more! It’s a great way to save on some dorm essentials and finish your shopping early. Below, you’ll find our picks for the best deals right now.
The Best Memorial Day Sales
1. Bedsure Twin XL Comforter Set with Sheets
Bedding is one of the first few things you’ll need to tick off your list, as you’ll need to get Twin XL sheets to fit the dorm bed. This highly rated comfortable sheet set is an incredible bundle and 20% off. There are plenty of colors to choose from, and reviewers like how soft the microfiber blend is and that the comforter doesn’t get too hot. At just $50, it’s good to try for their first year at school.
2. Dirt Devil Scorpion+ Boost Bundle Corded Hand Vacuum
Dorm rooms get messy, but there isn’t enough space to fit an entire vacuum. This handheld vacuum from Dirt Devil is easy to store, and it has excellent suction and a large dirt bin, so they aren’t constantly emptying it. They’ll be happy to have it when they spill Cheetos all over their floor late at night. It has a few attachments, too, including a crevice tool, a dusting brush, and an upholstery hose. Right now, you can save $5 on it!
3. Lucid 3 Inch Mattress Topper Twin XL
Sometimes the most challenging part of adjusting to college is getting used to sleeping on an old, hard mattress. This cushiony mattress topper from Lucid can help that transition be a little easier with 3 inches of CertiPur-US memory foam. It’s currently 15% off, making it a great time to buy. It arrives rolled off, and you’ll need to unfurl it upon arrival to the dorm to give it some time to air out.
4. Pottery Barn Teen Everyday Essential Towels
You also might want to get your student some new towels for college — and these from Pottery Barn Teen are on sale! Made from super soft and absorbent Turkish cotton, you can get them discounted in four colors. Face clothes and hand towels in this collection are also on sale if you want to get them a complete towel set.
5. Sterilite Wide 3-Drawer Chest With Wheels
The Container Store currently offers 30% off its entire site as part of its Memorial Day sale, which is perfect for saving on all your college storage needs. This three-chest drawer is an excellent choice for storing extra clothing and supplies in your child’s dorm room. It’s very affordable, especially with the sale, so it won’t be the end of the world if it’s trashed by the end of the year.
