#10 Socks

College life takes it's toll when it comes to doing laundry at laundromats or dorm rooms. It seems like there are more unmatched socks than ever at college.

#9 Underwear

Just as quickly as socks disappear, so do underwear. Buying in bulk is a great way to ensure your student has enough to last all semester.

#8 Storage and Disks

Whether it's thumb-drives, CDs or DVDs, disks are always a welcome addition for any college bound student. It's always a good thing to have something to back their work up on. With a wholesale pack of them, they might even share with their roommates.

#7 Highlighters

Since their spending the time "hitting the books", give them the tools to help retain everything their reading. Highlighters are the perfect tool for the job. A bulk order ensures they will have enough for the whole semester.

#6 Snacks

Many snacks can be bought in large quantities. Things like macaroni and cheese, snack size bags of chips, and other items offer wholesale pricing for large quantities of goodies that won't go bad quickly.

#5 Bathroom items

Bulk quantities of soap, shampoo, body wash, hairspray and hand soap will be a welcome addition for any college student living away from home.

#4 Toilet Paper

No college student wants to run out of toilet paper. Wholesalers offer packages of toilet paper for cents per roll.

#3 Laundry Detergent

This is a great item to buy in bulk at wholesale rates. Laundry soap is one of those necessities that you can never have enough of. Don't forget fabric softener or sheets while you are at it.

#2 Batteries

Batteries are another one of those things that you never have enough of or never have the right size. A bulk orders of batteries in multiple sizes are sure to please every college student.

#1 Phone Cards
Phone cards can be bought through wholesale dealers and can be used on pay phones. Prepaid minutes can be purchased for cell phones, too. Mom and dad will get the pleasure from students having these gems. Phone calls home to the folks and no collect call charges are just added perks.
