Down to the wire

Well, college commitment day is fast approaching.  My son Ben has it narrowed down to two universities but the competition between the two is not yet over.  Neither university he is considering has a greek system, so he will be spending at least the next two years in the dorms.  And while I don’t know whether he will be a Bulldog or a Viking next year, I do know that Ben’s dorm room will be outfitted with American made bedding and towels.

American Made Dorm and Home can supply you with everything your student needs in his or her new dorm room.  Their Dorm Bundles contain a comforter, sheets, mattress pad, a pillow and towels.  And it can be shipped directly to your student’s dorm room and be ready for the new term in the fall!  My favorite bundles is the Grey Chevron.


In addition to dorm products, American Made Dorm and Home also offers a wide range of fabric products such as bed skirts,


shower curtains,


and dog beds.


If you would like to learn more about American Dorm and Home, check out this short post on them at the fibre2fashion website.

It is going to be very strange to have Benjamin leave our home to go to college.  But I know it will be a great experience for him and with his American Dorm and Home Dorm Bundle, he will sleep better knowing that members of his extended American family have continued employment as a direct result of our choice to buy American made bedding.

Handsome devil isn’t he.

  1. Our oldest went off to college two years ago and it was tough. Our youngest will be leaving the nest in two years. I’m looking forward and dredding this all at the same time!
    Things will change but he will still need you. A friend of mine just sent her youngest off to college last fall and she is loving the new freedom and time to do things she enjoys.
