So, the kid is all packed and ready for college...or so you thought. Last-minute purchases have become a way of life in the age of Amazon (AMZN) - Get Report , so why not abuse the one-hour, one-day or free two-day shipping options? 

While the endless automat of cute dorm ready options for students in this day and age is totally not fair for the rest of us who had to deal with the tyranny of IKEA alone, at least we can live vicariously through college students by purchasing them what we would have wanted.
