Ways to Decorate Your Room on a Budget

By: Jessica Martin, SDSU Chapter Member

As college students, we definitely don’t have hundreds to drop on maintaining a homey and well-decorated room. Although it might seem like an impossible task, there are a lot of places that offer cute decor to add some personal flair to your room for very affordable prices. For the purposes of this blog post, I did an intensive crawl through Target’s “college” section to find things that you can buy for under $15, but there are lots of other places to consider looking as well (like Amazon or Walmart)! Hopefully this sparks some inspiration to make your room a place that truly feels like your space. 

 

1.Removable wall decals ($9.99)

For a little inexpensive (& non-damaging) wall coverage!
