If you’re sending a child off to college this fall, here are seven things you don’t need to buy. Experts say they’re just a waste of money these days.

A Printer



Sure, they’re nice to have. But do you really need one? Most homework can be emailed now.

A tablet.



The cheap tablets can’t do everything a laptop can. In many cases you’re better off with a computer.




A Big Screen TV



Most young people watch everything on computers now anyway. Having a big TV is not a necessity.




New Clothes



Especially if you’re a freshman. Chances are you might gain some weight. So just buy a few things, not an entire new wardrobe.




A Mini Fridge



In college, most of the time mini fridges are used to store your Hot Pockets and beer. Yeah, they’re handing to have, but not necessary.




External Hard Drive



If you need to back stuff up, you can get free storage online.




An iron



How many kids do you know that actually iron their clothes. That’s what I thought.
