Arizona colleges to increase DACA students' tuition

PHOENIX — College students are preparing to go back to school in about three weeks, many entering their college dorms for the first time. So, students are setting up college registries, similar to wedding registries and baby registries, to score the dorm room must-haves.

Target offers a registry that allows you to track who's contributed and who you have and haven't thanked. You can manage the registry through an app on your phone.

Here's another bonus! Target will then give you 15-percent off any gift you didn't receive.

Bed Bath & Beyond has one too! You can create it online or in store. There's even a checklist to make sure you're not missing anything!

My Registry allows you to register for gifts from multiple retailers, scoring you everything from bedding to decor to supplies. You take control by choosing from your favorite stores.

With a name like Dorm Co., you know they're experts in this area. You can use it to share with friends and family or use it to keep a tally of what you have and what you need.

So start building your college registry, and get the word out, so you'll be set for your college career!

You never know, you may end up keeping some of these items forever!
