Support Your College Kids with Easy Amazon Shopping TipsI remember my good old college days at GVSU. Talk about stressful. I had no car, but it was bearable because my BFF did. Boy, do you know how many of us would pile up in the car to head to town? You see, back in the day, GVSU had one small convenience store that cost five legs I didn’t have. Living in the dorms, that tiny fridge did what exactly? I think I had more food stored in my closet than clothes!

So if you’re trying to figure out what to get your college kids this Christmas or want to feel secure in knowing they have everything they need, I suggest going to Amazon.

Amazon is an easy way to shop online. I advise starting with Ebates because you may be eligible to receive cash back on certain purchases.

I also advise to sign them up for subscription services. This is a way to know they have what they need each month in addition for you to be able to say, “You should have that!”

Here are a few staple items I think every college student needs.

Make Their Own Wish List

If your kids have a wish list, that makes it even better. You don’t have to try to imagine what they really need. It’s easy enough as parents to just log onto Amazon and check out a wish list. However, kids have to figure out fancy little ways to do things, so Amazon is entertaining the idea with their Social media wish list! It’s easy to do!

      I’m thinking of getting my kids something similar their sophomore or junior year for high school. There are a variety of smart pens, but the ones that record once you place it down on paper/tablet are awesome. Great when kids are trying to follow what’s on the board and take notes.
