8 Back to School Items you Forgot to Pack

Fall move-in day is quickly approaching and things may seem hectic, but packing shouldn’t have to be! To make sure you set the stage for an awesome year, your friends at Fuse are here to help. We’ve compiled a few of our favorite items that will make sure you survive and thrive this school year. From coffee warmers to board games these items will motivate you to finally pull out those moving boxes and get to work.

Blue Light Glasses

Blue light lenses are a great way to extend your late night study sessions.
Taking remote classes or plugging away at last minute assignments on your laptop can mean working through the night, minimize digital eyestrain by adding blue light glasses to your routine. These clear but stylish lenses filter out high-energy blue light that can cause migraines, dry eyes, and light sensitivity. Healthy eyes can mean increased productivity in class and more restful sleep after. Here at Fuse, we offer custom replacement blue light lenses that easily pop in and out of your existing glasses so you don’t have to give up your favorite frames. Or, if you’re ready for something new we offer 10 completely customizable pairs of blue light glasses starting at just $25. For even more ways to combat digital eyestrain before it starts, be sure to check out our blog post.


Filtering Water Bottle

Hydration is key for those long walks across campus.
When your mini fridge isn’t big enough to hold a case of water and walking to the dining hall just isn’t in your plans, filtering water bottles can be a life saver. Campus water doesn’t always taste the best, and sometimes the only accessible water comes from the tap. Brands like Brita, LifeStraw, and Grayl carry stylish reusable bottles that provide clean water on the go so you can save money and reduce waste.

It's easy to make friends with board games, just don't hit em' with a draw four!
Making friends can be a huge concern when heading back to school, especially for freshman. However, with this trick there’s no need to leave the comfort of your building to make new friends on campus. Be the host with the most in your residence hall by bringing old and new friends together with board or card games. Card games like UNO, Card Against Humanity, and Shut The Box can be perfect for a chill night in (especially during hurricane season).

Laptop Lock

Heading to the library or lounge to do some studying? Keep your most valuable study tool safe even when you’re taking a break with a laptop lock. This device keeps your computer secured to the table and gives you peace of mind when grabbing an assignment from the printer or a snack from the café.

Room Divider

Living with a roommate can be a fun bonding experience but, when you’re ready for a little privacy time room dividers can be a great solution to make your small shared space feel more personal. With the option to buy or DIY, room dividers fold, collapse, and store away for the perfect last-minute addition to your packing list.

Reliable Rain Gear

Here in Florida, we see rain almost as much as we see sunshine. Stay one step ahead of the wet weather with a sturdy golf umbrella, rain coat, and boots. Reliable all-weather gear will last you all four years and ensure that you (and your precious assignments) don’t get soaked on the way to class. Some stellar brands to checkout for outdoor gear include L.L. Bean, Hunter, and Samsonite.

Sleep Earplugs

It’s no secret that dorms can be one of the loudest places on campus, but not for much longer! Brands like MAXROCK make small, lightweight, flexible in-ear headphones that are perfect for catching up on sleep while blocking out even the nosiest of roommates.

Coffee Mug Warmer

Bring your cold coffee back to life with a mug warmer
Don’t let your coffee get cold during an important study sesh, be sure to pack a mug warmer to keep your beverages hot without the need for a microwave. Small enough to fit on your dorm room desk these plug in coasters are perfect for coffee, tea, or even a cup of hot chocolate.
