Dorm Room Dos and Don'ts
For college-bound students, the key is learning how to maximize space on a minimal budget while also adding style. Check out these great tips from a recent college graduate who learned things the hard way.
Many dorm beds require twin-XL sheets, so don’t waste money on high thread count sheets you won’t be able to use later. Instead, buy inexpensive jersey cotton sheet sets. They are soft, easily washable, and with two sets, they can be switched out between laundry trips.
Tip: Stains will be easier to get rid of on white sheets. Just add some bleach in the next load of whites.
If you prefer colored sheets, buy two different colors to match the bedding. This makes it easy to remember when it’s time to change the sheets.
