15 Dorm Room Decorating Ideas Under $50

Decorating your new college quarters doesn’t have to empty your wallet.

The coolest thing in my dorm room more than a decade ago was an alarm clock/CD player combo. We didn’t fill the windowsills with succulents, hang string lights or coordinate our decor…at all. We were literally four strangers from all over the country, meeting and talking for the first time on move-in day. You know — the old-school way of meeting your college roommates. Now, dorm decor is stylish, functional and most of all, affordable.
