Cinder block walls and steel furniture may sound more like a prison cell than a dorm room, but that’s often what’s waiting for college students. Thankfully transforming that small space into something homier can be done on a budget, especially when you shop these dorm room deals.
Bed Bath & Beyond - You can find pretty much everything you need to outfit your dorm room at Bed Bath & Beyond. From basics like bedding to storage solutions they’ve got plenty of college-friendly options. Plus, when you sign up for email coupons or mobile ones by texting “Offer” to 239663 you’ll get regular access to 20% off coupons good on pretty much everything on your list. In other words, if you work it right you shouldn’t ever have to pay full price.
PB Teen - There are lots of sale items at PBTeen.com that would be perfect for doing up a dorm room including bedding, rugs and backpacks. Plus from now until August 15 when you sign up for their email list you’ll get $10 off your purchase of $99 or more.
Lowe’s - Dorms don’t come equipped with fridges or microwaves, but these items can make late night snacking much more convenient. Right now until August 19 shoppers can save 20% on small appliances. Pick up a compact refrigerator for as little as $79, a microwave for $49.99 and a toaster for $5.
Wal-Mart - Wal-Mart’s rolled back prices on lots of dorm room essentials including furniture and décor items. But you’ll definitely want to stock up on storage solutions since space is extremely limited and college living quarters are often cramped. Adjustable bed risers are less than $12 and give you more room under your bed for storing stuff.
Target - Target has been a go-to source for dorm room design for years and this year is no different. Be sure to check out their fun line of Xhilaration rugs, all on sale for $63. They come in fun colors and patterns including zebra and floral prints.
