4 Ways to Furnish Your College Apartment on a Budget

If you’re a CU student renting an apartment in Boulder you’ve probably spent most of your money on your deposit, first months’ rent, and school expenses. This can leave you wondering how in the heck you are going to furnish your new college apartment, but luckily, there are ways to make it look nice, even if you don’t have a lot of coin.

1. Buy Dorm Room Stuff

Don’t ditch the dorm room stuff just yet. If you shop during back to school season, you can find great deals on dorm room furniture, linens and more. The smaller stuff will also work better in small college apartments.

2. Beg Your Friends and Family

Now’s the time to swallow your pride and start begging. Let everyone that you know — from your parents to your childhood friends — that you need stuff for your apartment. You might not get the new swag that you thought you would get, but if your crazy aunt donates her floral couch then put a slip cover over  and it’ll be better than what you have right now.

3. Shop Used

You don’t have your parents’ bank account — or if you do, you’re really lucky!! — so you can’t shop at your parents’ favorite furniture stores. Instead, check out flea markets, thrift shops, used furniture stores, yard sales and other places that sell old furniture. Plus, check out Facebook to find out if there is an online yard sale site for areas near your school, or take a look at Craigslist. Sometimes, people are even willing to give stuff away.

4. Learn to Repurpose

Get creative, and learn to repurpose things that you already have for your changing needs. Check out Pinterest; there are a ton of great ideas there. For example, you can turn wooden crates into a cool coffee table for your new spot, or you can reinvent your old bookshelf to use as a modern desk.

Buying all new stuff for your new college apartment doesn’t have to be expensive. Follow these tips, and you can furnish your new college apartment without spending a fortune.
