The last few weeks have been filled with all things college related. The FAFSA, essays, college applications, the Target College Registry, and the stress of paying for it all!

Did you catch that? Target actually has a Registry for College! Yay!

I’m stoked that my senior in high school is thinking about what she will need for her dorm room and is creating a registry on the Target website for my convenience!

The cool thing is that Target has a Universal Registry.

That means you can download a bookmark and add stuff to your registry from other stores too. Not just Target. WIN!

Bonus: We just received an email from Target for 15% off her Target Registry items! This isn’t a coupon you have to use in three days. Nope! We have a whole six months!

Can you tell I’m excited?

Our very own 17 Year Old Girl found this handy dandy College Dorm Checklist and set to work creating a College Registry through Target!
