Essential Gadgets for your College Apartment

With Montrose Square Apartments being just down the street from IPFW, we always have a lot of college students living here.   If this is your first year living away from home, here is a list of must have gadgets for the perfect college apartment.

The first is a space-saving computer.  You must have a computer, of course, but remember, once you get all of your books home, you may not find a lot room left over for that big tower computer with the giant monitor.  Fortunately, today’s small computers, and laptops are very powerful, and can still power your games while keeping a low space profile.  A laptop can be moved around and even shared with your visiting friends or roommates.

The second gadget to consider is a central charging station for you cell phones, laptops, and tablets.  You won’t last long without recharging  your essential electronic devices, and a central station will save you room let you know quickly where your devices are hiding, and ensure they are always charged.

Another great space creator for any apartment is an e-book reader.  One small reader can store tons of books you would otherwise need room to store.  It can also replace magazines and newspapers.  Skip the bulky bookshelves…get an e-reader.

While not electronic gadgets, there are two things every good college apartment should have in the kitchen, a toaster oven and a crock pot.  A toaster oven is faster and easier to use to make a frozen dinner or snack, while a crock pot is essential for making easy, healthy meals.  Put a few ingredients into the crock pot in the morning, let is slow cook all day, and have a terrific meal every night.  It won’t replace Mom’s cooking, but it’s close.

Now, you tell us.  What items do you think are essential for your college apartment?
