    Bed items to bring?

    Advertisements



    Ok, so i know this might be a dumb question to ask but I am still not sure what to do. Do you think it is a good idea to bring pillows and blankets over to dominica or just buy them there? I mean how much can they be there cause it will use a lot of my suitcase and to ship them to the island will cost too much for something that I can just get there. I can't make up my mind and I am thinking that even if the quality is not like the US they will still do? What do you guys think? Who is or has brought what and can anyone tell me how much the pillows and blankets are there?

    Thank you guys.

    Jennifer

    blanket/pillows

    To be honest, I don't think you'll need a serious blanket cuz of the mild/hot/humid temperatures. My bf brought a flannel blanket over for the cooler winter nights, and also uses the sheets that the landlord provides. They already provide pillows (but his were sorta flat), and there are also places to buy them (I think in Portsmouth).

    We tried stuffing a pillow into a suitcase, but yeah, it didn't work.

    ??

    my gf and I brought pillows, pillow cases, a fitted sheet and one flat sheet. No blankets. It worked out great.

    If you have room, cram it in there, if not don't worry about it.

    What really works, since a lot of places have slightly different bed sizes, is to bring 2 queen-sized flat sheets, 2 pillow cases, and 1 light-weight flannel blanket. It's a waste of space to try to bring a pillow. It is also advisable to bring a plastic zippered mattress cover to prevent sand fleas. This has been debated in the past, and the very individuals who scoffed at it were the ones covered with red dots by the end of the semester.

    bedding

    I think if you're shipping down some items a must have is an egg crate mattress. We had one and it was wonderful!! The first couple weeks without it was awful. The beds are so used, and used again you can sometimes feel the springs popping thru the mattress. Highly recommended. We shipped a queen egg crate and trimmed it as needed. Queen sized flat sheets are a wonderful idea as well. You can cut them if need be.

    Many of the beds in many of the apartments are not real beds. Some are wooden boxes with a mattress on top, and some are bare wires and springs with a mattress on top. The only "real" beds I saw were in Safehome.

    pillows

    We bought pillows at James store when we got her. Believe it or not they are pretty good. They cost 23 ec each (approximately 9 u.s. dollars) As far as blankets and sheets I would bring my own if you have space.
