How to Make Your Dorm More Comfy

Here are some small things to add to your dorm to make it a little cozier. They aren’t the obvious things like a rug or throw pillows. I included a lot of decorations and home goods below.

Small Notebooks: I love having a notebook to jot down quick notes, so I really liked both of these notebooks. I usually write down notes for class or blog ideas in these. The blue one was $3.00 at Home Goods, and the other was a gift by Louise Carey.


Bright Picture Frames: I love having pops of color, and I really liked this color combo. A fun frame is perfect to put pictures of your family and friends in.



Printed Pajamas: For the lazy Sundays where you’re in your pajamas all day, I think these shorts and pajama bottom are perfect for college because you can’t even tell it’s sleepwear. The blue crocheted pair were a gift from Target. The dark blue shorts were $9.99 from Burlington, and the Cynthia Rowley bottoms were also $9.99.


Fragrance Sachets: These are great to throw in your drawers of clothes and your closet. These were $2.99 at Burlington and they’re vanilla coconut. They make your clothes smell fresh, and I really like this warm scent.


Fun Folders: Remember that these are the folders that you’re going to be throwing on your desk after class. These were a $1.00 at Target, and it reminds me of shopping for the printed folders when I was in elementary school.
