Furnishing a dorm room can be a challenge; students want to express their individuality while parents want to keep spending to a minimum. However, with a little bit of smarts and planning, both can be achieved.
Pre-planning and listing required items can help you locate the best prices on sale items ahead of time and avoid the pressure of buying expensive items too close to moving day. Money can also be saved through recycling goods from home, identifying and avoiding items banned from dorms, and splitting costs with roommates on shared items.
Furnishing dorm rooms should not be underestimated, nor should it be feared. Organization and resourcefulness are important to thriftily give your child in college the right atmosphere for his or her dorm room.
