Save Money During the First Year in College

COLLEB DOLLAR STORE DORM ROOM IT'S BACK-TO-SCHOOL SEASON, and the time has come to decorate your dorm room. But as a college student, you have virtually no money to your name. NEVER FEAR! THE DOLLAR STORE IS HERE, With just a little DIY savvy, you can use dollar store decorations to turn your dorm room into a fun, cozy place that's perfect for studying – and maybe the occasional party. SAVE SPACE Priority #1 in a dorm is making the most of a small space. Use shower hooks instead of individual hangers for clothes to save a ton of closet space. Use binder clips to hold cables and cords in place. STUFF Store everything you don't need immediately accessible in clear, stackable storage containers. At only $1 apiece, these containers are a cheap lifesaver. STUFF Use vases to store your pens, highlighters and scissors on your desk. Writing utensils strewn everywhere will make a room look instantly messy! Store your jewelry or other loose knickknacks in ice cube trays to keep them organized. DECORATE Yes, it's possible to have an aesthetically pleasing dorm room! Most dorms won't allow you to put nails in the walls, so use self-adhesive hooks to hang any art. They're $1 for a pack of four. Use drawer liners on the outside of your dresser. It's easy to find drawer liners with pretty patterns at the dollar store, and you can stick them on the outside of your dresser to give it an instant makeover! Buy rubber welcome mats and spray-paint them any color you want. This makes for an eye-catching burst WELCOME of color the second someone enters your room. Paint your own mirror frames (or regular picture frames). The dollar store sells lots of mirrors, but most of them have boring frames. You can easily paint them a solid color or any pattern. Same goes with picture frames. Layer mason jars with your favorite things – anything you like! Fill them with whatever you find visually appealing: marbles, seashells, rocks, ice cream sprinkles, etc. Another mason jar miracle: mason jar candles. Simply place electric candles (most dorms ban real candles) inside mason jars to create an enchanting candleholder. TIPS Keep in mind that you generally can't do anything "permanent" to your dorm room. DON'T DECORATE IN ANY WAY THAT WILL LEAVE DAMAGE BEHIND. UTILIZE THE SPACE UNDER YOUR BED as a place to keep your storage containers. STOFF STOPF STUPF STOPF DON'T FORGET YOUR DESK CAN BE USED FOR STORAGE, TOO! Stow books, notebooks and other items inside your desk drawer or cabinet. BE SURE TO READ YOUR DORM'S RULES BEFORE STARTING TO DECORATE. Rules vary from school to school, and you don't want any of your decorating work to be undone! SEE YOU IN THE QUAD! fat walet Source: com
