Do NOT Buy From OCM!
I wanted to update my blog post because this company sucks! I advertised for them and I hosted a giveaway for them and they NEVER shipped out my winners prize! I contacted them privately about 5 or 6 times. Then I reached out on social media several times. They replied to me on Facebook apologizing but then ignoring my messages after that. So, they are well aware of me trying to contact them! I also read the MANY reviews on their Facebook page and on the internet and the reviews are horrible saying they never ship out orders or when orders are received they are SO late it is crazy. I should have done my research when agreeing to work with this company, such a shame!
So, DO NOT buy from OCM because if you do, you will either never receive your item and you will be ignored after you submit your payment OR you will receive your item 8 months later! Bad customer service and a terrible company overall. I am sorry I did not do my research on them before posting about them.
Please tell your friends and family members too! Thank you !

Take it from past students, the Rhino Trunk is the MVP of your room (Most Valuable Product). It serves as secure storage, a coffee table, end of bed accessory, ottoman, bench, and step stool all in one. It’s also the place you put stuff during parents’ weekend that you don’t want them seeing. Made in the USA by Rhino, it’s the most rugged trunk for college.
Its constructed from steel hardware, 3/8” Baltic Birch plywood, and an Armor nylon canvas exterior that deflects liquids, dents, and scratches. It features a specially designed soft-close safety lid stay to keep the lid from slamming shut on fingers. Rhino Trunks exude quality and are strong enough to jump on! The Large is the most popular size for dorm rooms.
Add wheels and save your back! Rhino’s specially designed wheels can be installed on your trunk anytime; anywhere in a matter of seconds. They’re extremely easy to use! No tools are required! They don’t add any extra height to the trunk. Once you put them on simply lift the handle on the opposite end of the trunk and start wheeling it away. Not only are these storage trunks easy to transport, but they are spacious and hold plenty of stuff securely in your dorm room.
The trunks start at $89.99 and go up from there. Add Snap and Go Trunk Wheels for an extra $27.95.
Chunky Knit Throw
This is it, the chunky knit throw! This is that fabulous oversize throw blanket you saw on Pinterest. Oversize yarn is woven to create a stunning texture that is super soft and comfortable. Just imagine getting cozy with this blanket for a night of studying or socializing with friends.
And it’s a full 50 by 60 inches, so you can stretch out on your dorm bed with it. I love this knit throw and use it all the time. It is a nice size, a really nice size and it is SO warm and soft! Every college dorm room bed needs one of these!
