Now you’ve got your freshers' wardrobe ready it’s time to think about the practical stuff, you know the stuff you need to live. It’s pretty likely that if you’re moving out all you’ll have is a bed, a desk and a shared bathroom and toilet so you’ll need a few bits to make sure you can survive.

Whether you were lucky enough to bag yourself a private bathroom or if you’re sharing it with everyone else, there are a few essentials you need.

• Shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, shavers etc

• Toothbrush (we know it sounds obvious)

• Soap

• Toilet cleaner, bleach, toilet brush
