For most of us, decorating a dorm room is our debut into the world of interior design... and you couldn't pick a more difficult first project. There are storage restrictions, building restrictions (save your scented candles for postgrad), and, of course, budget restrictions. And while the first two can be solved by some clever swaps and smart multipurpose pieces—more on those later—we're turning to Amazon to handle the budget part. From mini-fridges to a rolling storage cart to luxe-looking Twin XL-sized linens, so many college essentials are currently on sale.
We combed through thousands of picks to find the best of the best in every product category. The result: a dorm room shopping starter pack of 19 items you'll be getting use out of way past graduation day.
