Richmond Hardware & Paint’s Back to School Supplies List

When you go back to school shopping it’s always best to take stock of what you currently have on hand and what you think you will need. Here are a few items in the store that would be great to add to your list.

Desk Lamp – A desk lamp is great for those students who are burning the midnight oil and don’t want to wake up their roommate. We have IVY LED USB desk lamps that not only offer energy efficiency but also comes with a convenient, built-in USB charger. With limited electrical outlets and space, this desk lamp is certainly ideal for college students. It also comes in a variety of colors: black, white, green, blue and pink with three different levels of lighting.

Stapler – College students write many papers throughout their college careers so we know how handy owning a stapler is. Right now we’re offering a Port Mini Stapler* that also has a built-in staple remover. It’s small enough to make it portable and would be a great addition to your messenger bag.

Glue Pen – Add Elmer’s Glue All Pen* to your back to school shopping list – it has a 2 in 1 dual tip so you can use it for small projects or larger applications.

Damage-Free Hanging – You will want to personalize your space but many dorm rooms and apartments don’t allow nails, screws or tacks. We offer a variety of 3M brand Command hooks*, picture hanging strips*, as well as 3M double sided mounting tape*. These dorm room supplies are very easy to use, easy to remove, they work on a variety of surfaces like wood, drywall, and even glass, and they won’t damage surfaces.

Extra Storage – Small apartments and dorm rooms force you to get creative about how to use your space. One of the most underutilized spaces is beneath your bed. We sell Sterilite storage containers* made specifically for underneath your bed. This gives you the added space to store additional clothing, books, extra bedding, or even your winter jacket.

Shower Caddy – Shower caddies* are a must for any dorm-dweller. A shower caddy makes carrying your toiletries from you dorm room to the dorm showers much easier. We carry a variety of shower caddies that have a sturdy handle for carrying your shower essentials but won’t take too much space in your dorm room.

Along with these items don’t forget the other essentials like pens, notebooks, and folders. If you have any trouble finding the items you need please ask one of our friendly customer service people and we’d be happy to help you.
