Don't shop during the first week of college. Move in with the items you will need. Do not plan to head to your local mall to pick up sheets, towels, etc. when you move in and by all means avoid the grocery store. Plan to eat everything on campus for a week, or bring groceries from home. There will be a run on these stores like you wouldn't believe during the first few days when students move in. Avoid spending three hours getting groceries and standing in line by either shopping at around midnight during that first week or waiting for the craze to pass.
