4. Erasable Message Alarm Clock
So you drank a bit too much the night before and you’ve found yourself snooze that dreaded alarm clock. Suddenly, at 10:43 you wake up, realizing that in your sleepy haze you forgot about your 8:00 AM Psychology lecture. Whoops. With the message wake alarm clock that problem is solved. Hard to convince yourself you don’t have that brutal early class when it’s written in front of your face.
5. Shake and Wake Alarm Clock
This one is for those who have a hard time getting up but have early classes and don’t want to wake up their roommates with their absurdly loud alarm. Also for those who need a shake and not a ring to wake up. This band ties on comfortably and wakes you up with a stern vibration.
6. Portable Cup Holder
Thanks to one (or both) of the previous, handy-dandy alarm clocks, you’re up and ready for class. Well maybe not quite. You’re still in desperate need for some caffeine in your blood stream. With this colourful little gadget, you can clip your coffee mug or cup onto that tiny desk and try not to snore through your lecture.
