College Life: Making Your Dorm A Home [Sponsored]

I remember the day I drove onto campus with a minivan filled with  ̶e̶v̶e̶r̶y̶t̶h̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶I̶ ̶o̶w̶n̶e̶d̶   college essentials. I was greeted by the Movers and Shakers, members of Greek Life who help freshmen students move in. We walked up the five flights of stairs (tip #1 to living on campus: if you live on the second floor, don't you dare take the elevator. You will be shot dirty looks!). Out of breath and sweaty, we finally made it to my room. Room 519. 

How glorious it looked! Hard dark gray berber-carpeted floors, white cinderblock walls, a small window, and bunk beds to complete the look. You might as well have assumed that I was back in the cabin of sixth grade camp. Yikes. Fortunately, I came prepared with flowers, posters, photos, and colorful bedding to make this place my home. 

My Freshman Dorm Room
In just a few short months, thousands of students will be moving into their first dorm experience just like I did three years ago! (Good lawd, I'm getting old!) With the help of Residence Hall Linens, making that cinderblock room feel like home will be no problem! RHL offers a great value with their different bedding packages and I wish I would have known about them my freshman year! 

Complete Campus Collection
The package with the most bang-for-your-buck is the Complete Campus Collection that includes 26 items, in any color, and all for $229! It includes sheets, pillow cases, pillows, a comforter, fleece throw, quilted mattress pad, egg crate pad (heck yes for extra comfort!), bath towels, a hamper, and so much more! This saves you so much money! I don't even want to think about how much my parents and I spent on stuff for my dorm room! 

RHL even offers packages for allergen guards, shower packs (trust me, you NEED a shower caddie), even storageMy favorite part after moving into your dorm and laying out your bedsheets, is decorating! Decorative pillows, throw rugs, canvas art and wall decals all will make this space your space!

Use code SAVE20RHL at checkout to save an additional $20 on your bedding value pack!  

Are you moving into the college dorm scene this fall? How are you going to decorate your room?!

With Love,
