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.
Don’t buy new bedding every year. Instead, invest in a high-quality synthetic down comforter. It’s great for all seasons and temperatures and will last all four years (or five for some students) of college.
Add color and style with a printed duvet cover. Look for one that's machine-washable duvet cover with a print that hides stains.
Tip: Make the bed every day, even if you just pull the comforter back up. It’s surprising how much cleaner the room will look.
