I know that there are many lists of what to bring to college. But I don't think anyone has really ever said how much they spent on their dorm stuff.
I'm planning on allowing myself a limit of $1500 on dorm stuff and $500 of the limit goes strictly towards clothes. Is that too much/ too little to spend? How much did/do/ or you willing to spend on dorm stuff?
What did you end up spending a lot on that you should have bought cheaper?
Any practical advice like, "$300 for a bed set is WAY too much", would be greatly appreciated. (FYI I don't know if $300 is too much/ too little).
What are some stuff that you brought and realized was absolutely unnecessary? What are the stuff that you should buy on campus -if any?
I sort of started my own little list of what to buy, but I'm not sure the $1500 is enough/ or too much. I've looked through the first couple of posts on the thread "A to Z what to bring to college" but a lot of it seems, to me personally, a little bit unncessary. Also, I tried asking the same question there and go no respond :/. If any of my questions are answered there just redirect me, but I don't think it mentions the prices.
