In the Room – When away at school, it’s difficult to run out to the garage or to the kitchen junk draw to get what you need. A few key items are small fans, a step stool, plenty of extension cords and surge protectors too. You know you will need batteries; but, consider a first aid kit and a mini tool kit as well. Locks will come in handy, a padlock and even a lock for your laptop or computer.
