With college starting in a few weeks, many freshman are seeking ways to organize their new rooms. However, purchasing dorm kits can get expensive, and if there is anything that a freshman needs to learn, it is how to save money.
1. For under-bed storage, wrap shoe boxes with dollar store wrapping paper or contact paper.
2. Buy a second-hand mini-fridge. If you don’t like the color, you can wrap the door (or the entire fridge) in contact paper.
3. Re-purpose high school locker shelves into desktop book storage.
4. Decorate tin cans to store pens, markers, and pencils.
