Post Office Shop’s 10 Of The Best Back To Uni Products
The start of the 2015/16 academic year is just around the corner which doesn’t leave much time to pack all those essential items required before heading back to uni. Be it halls of residence or a shared house, getting kitted out for freshers week and beyond requires some careful thought.
Having signed up to a whole host of clubs and societies, most students will be balancing a hectic social life with everything the demands of their course brings, so staying organised with a Mark-It Perpetual Year planner is imperative.
Handy 100 sheet Oxford Campus Assorted Project Notebooks which come in a pack of 5, are the perfect everyday accompaniment for note-taking during university lectures. These multi-coloured notepads even feature an integrated pocket ideal for loose sheets and storage media devices.
Indeed when it comes to storing all those pieces of course work to be completed on a laptop as well as music to accompany hours of study away from the lecture theatre, a high capacity Sandisk Cruzer Blade 32GB USB Flash Drive will be a must have item. It’s all very well storing these files on a laptop but having a back-up just in case the unthinkable happens is certainly advised!
The old adage ‘tidy house, tidy mind’ remains true so keeping that room at university spick and span, and clear of clutter will also facilitate effective studying. The Leitz WOW Desk Cubes are just the ticket and come in a variety of funky colours featuring 5 easy to open drawers making them perfect for storing all those academic papers.
Meanwhile, health professionals have recently claimed that going off to university increases the risk of illness. So to mitigate germs causing winter bugs which will become prevalent in halls of residence or shared houses as the nights draw in, Jeyes Kleen multi-surface wipes will certainly come in very handy for quick and effective cleaning.
Food for thought
The staple diet of most students on campus will often involve dishes requiring minimal preparation which is where a compact microwave comes in very handy. What’s more, arriving for the new academic year with one of these essential kitchen appliances is sure to impress other students if you’re prepared to share!
Indeed as students are not renowned for conjuring up the most adventurous recipes, many will be reliant on a two slice toaster. Be it as a means for breakfast, or as a snack between lectures, cheese or beans on toast remain part of the daily staple diet for many students.
Let’s be honest, students have an unenviable reputation for not keeping on top of the washing up of all those dirty cups and dishes. But why not reverse the trend by having a pack of absorbent tea towels ready packed for the new academic year? When the student grant starts to dry up towards the end of term, takeaway meals might need to be ditched, so having clean cutlery and kitchen utensils to use will become very welcome!
Having the ability to make a hot brew in your room is strongly advised to make it feel a little more homely. The affordable Igenix Cordless Kettle ticks all the boxes as it has a large 1.7 litre capacity which is enough to make around seven hot drinks at once – perfect for making those new found friends a brew at the same time too!
Burning the midnight oil to complete an essay that needs to be finished ready to hand in at a lecture the following morning will inevitably require an instant caffeine boost to stay awake and alert. To this end, a cup of Nescafe Azera coffee can certainly deliver so it’s worth keeping an ample supply to hand.
