Back-to-school season is not complete without a trip to Bed Bath & Beyond. The multi-department mega store is a major shopping destination for college-living essentials, from shower caddies to bed risers and mini fridges. But, after tapping the company for its bestselling products, we were surprised to find goods that aren't just student-exclusive. The top-purchased products are life-long essentials for both dorm rooms, starter apartments, and beyond.
Ahead, we combined Bed Bath & Beyond's ten back-to-school bestsellers with its top bestselling items of all time. The resulting lineup comes together like an ultimate home checklist guide — with powerful hand-vacuums, single-serve coffee makers, top-rated bedding to bath sets, non-slip hangers, and portable steamers all included. Scroll on to shop 20 top-selling living essentials that are college tested and post-college approved.
