Last year, I went through a very difficult time - my son went off to college. Since we knew he would be heading off, we started shopping for all of the things that he would need to fill his dorm room. We were able to get some really great deals on furniture and small appliances for the room by shopping at flea markets and yard sales. We then put everything in a storage unit until the day it was time for him to leave. At that point, we rented a moving truck and loaded up. If you have a teen getting ready to head off to college, my blog can help you get organized so that the physical labors of sending your kid off to college isn't so bad.
