We know that itâ€™s both easy and hard to be away from home. Itâ€™s nice to have a new environment, and live independently (sorry Mom, but itâ€™s true). However, college dorms also present unique challenges: where does all my stuff go? Why is my roommates stuff everywhere? How can I make my tiny space look cool and not cluttered? For some, youâ€™ve been planning your dorm room, pinning and scrapbooking decoration ideas all year and youâ€™re good to go. For others, you may have arrived and realized that there was no way your stuff was going to all fit nicely in your small 12×18 space. You also may have realized that the dingy lighting, and purple carpet werenâ€™t exactly what you had been picture when you thought about your ideal room. Of course, others may realize that their roommate has a completely different idea of what dÃ©cor is (perhaps 15th century goth isnâ€™t your style?) . Whatever your unique challenge is, as youâ€™ve settled into the first few weeks of school you may have found that you could still use a thing or two to spruce up your room.
Rather than stressing about your tight student budget, you can make a wishlist for your dorm room! Your mom can see what types of things you would like and still need to make your year at college a successful one. Even if sheâ€™s on the other side of the country, all she needs to do is see what youâ€™ve wished for and within a few clicks, sheâ€™ll have it shipped right to your door!
Not sure what youâ€™re missing, but know you could use a few things? Check out our dorm wishlist for a few ideas of your own, and start wishing!
