Decorating a dorm room can be expensive. But the savvy authors of the blog "Grown & Flown" have a few tips on how to make dorm decorating affordable. So, before you rush out with your list to the nearest big-box store, keep these three things in mind:
- Only buy what your student absolutely needs. And if you forget something, Amazon Student Prime offers free two-day shipping for the first six months.
- Shop around. You never have to pay full price if you scout the sales and use coupons.
- "Shop" at home first. You don't need to buy everything new. Stuff you already have around the house could work just as well.
