She's my daughter and she's a college-bound student.
I can smile because she's mine and I can laugh because I've told her she isn't going to be hurting for money that badly! She's got much of what she needs already, a food account for the cafeteria and of course... Mom and Dad standing by to help in a pinch!
We're checking out the last things we need at Sears CampusReady to finalize the dorm room and for those of us that need a few hints, you can check out the CampusReady on Facebook application for your room design and matching up with a roommate just to name a couple.

For a easy gift that keeps giving check out the reloadable gift cards you can purchase in-store. Used at both Kmart and Sears, that pretty covers anything your child could need from a last minute blanket, to a hoodie sweatshirt, Pop-Tarts, a laptop computer or shampoo.
