Here’s the thing about college: It’s one of those things that feels so exciting and so stressful at the same time. Freedom! Friends! No more curfew! But do you want to wash your own clothes at the same time? Cleaning? And all while managing new and difficult classes? It can certainly feel overwhelming and stressful.

I keep thinking that in just a few weeks I will be moving into my very first college dorm and living away from home. am i excited Of course. am i nervous More than ever.

Just thinking about what I would buy for my dorm room left me in shambles. How do I match all my shoes and clothes? What aesthetics should my dorm room have (floral or minimalist are the two top contenders) and how much space does a 121-square-meter room have anyway? If you thought the internet would relieve that stress, think again. There are hundreds of places to buy dorm decor and I could already feel my wallet shaking from some of the price tags I’ve seen.

Luckily I did the work so you don’t have to! After weeks of comparing sites and prices (and yes, asking older college friends who had already gone through the pain of freshman year for recommendations), I found the best retailers to buy all of your dorm decor and essentials. Whatever your aesthetic or current stress level regarding your dorm room for the next year, I’m sure you’ll find something you absolutely love. I’ve found everything from personalized shower trays to the coolest wall art. And no, it’s never too early to start shopping for back to school!
