In the weeks leading up to my freshman year of college, I was obsessed with dorm room shopping. I mean, who wasn’t? After all, college is our first taste of freedom and independence, our first chance to move away from home and decorate our own space however we wanted to. Finally, the chance to have our own Pinterest-worthy room!
There was just one problem…I was on a budget. A very small budget, in fact. After all, moving 4 hours away for college isn’t cheap, and when you consider the rising cost of tuition, housing, supplies, books, and everything else? Yeah, I guess you could say I was trying to pinch my pennies.
However, there is a big difference between throwing your money away and making an investment, and when it comes to college, it’s all about investing in ourselves. That’s why I have put together a list of 5 must-have items worth investing in for college and why it’s worth it to invest more money in these items, rather than to take the cheap way out.
