When a teenager is going off to University for the first time, they need a whole pile of stuff, and that’s the premise behind Dorm-In-A-Box. The US based service promises to put together everything you might need in one simple package. Because of bulk buying they claim to supply $1,200 of value for $349.
I’m not sure whether anyone is doing anything similar in the UK, but it could be worth investigating. Thinking more widely, are there any other life events or activities which lend themselves to this ‘In a box’ approach? In the past, for example, we’ve featured a company supplying everything you need to camp at a festival, in one package. There have to be other opportunities to help people save time, money and thinking time by packaging up everything they might need in a particular circumstance.
