Bedroom Decor Finds For The Broke College Girl’s First Apartment

It has officially been a week and a half since I have packed up all my stuff and moved into my first apartment! Since then, I have faced lost luggage, snow, and negative temperatures. I have also finally finished unpacking all my belongings. Now, I am ready to slowly start decorating!!! I thought it would be fun to share some bedroom decor finds that I either already have or plan to get for my first apartment!

Check out these basic bedroom decor finds for the broke college girl's first apartment!

My Bedroom Decor Finds

//grey duvet cover// Currently, I have a lighter grey duvet cover from target but it isn’t the softest texture and lint and fuzz clings to it like no other. I plan to upgrade to this duvet in the future.

//marble candle// I like this candle because it adds a nice little accent to the bedroom decor without being over the top or breaking the bank. At first I was drawn to the blush/marble combo for my bedroom decor but I soon realized I would not be able to afford all the marble decor I wanted and figured a few accent pieces would be a more affordable choice.

//aqua sheets// I currently have the Room Essentials Microfiber sheets from Target and am content with them. They are not my absolute favorite sheets ever but they are pretty soft. The only complaint I have about them is that they are a little big for my bed. Again, not complaining too much because I got them for under $20 which is great for this broke college girl!

//fairy lights// I think these fairy lights will add some personality to my room. This pack comes with two sets of battery operated lights for under $20! Lights give the room a very homey feel and since they are battery operated you don’t have to worry about running up the electricity bill since we’re on that college kid budget 😉

//felt letter board// This is just a fun little addition that is very on trend right now. There are so many color options and you can write whatever you are in the mood for!

//throw blanket// Doesn’t this blanket just give you all the cozy feels?! It is currently 9 degrees outside and I am wishing I already had this blanket to wrap around me. It comes in two different sizes and both are under $30! What a deal!!

//wax melter// Any sort of scented decor is right up my alley. I feel like candles and wax melters instantly make any room more cozy. The thing I love about the wax melter is that you can change the scent as much as you want.

//cube organizer// I had one of these when I was living at my mom’s house and let me just tell you! I didn’t realize how handy they were until I didn’t have one. They are the perfect solution for storing a bunch of junk and not letting anyone else know. You can decorate the shelves or fill them with colored bins that hide everything that doesn’t have a home! This is a perfect bedroom decor piece that doubles as storage.

//fabric bins// I love that these bins come in all different colors and patterns. It makes it easy to match your bedroom decor and you can get them for as cheap as $3! I swear by these things and will be buying some ASAP to hide all the things. Take my word, you need these in your life.

I know that as college kids we want to have the homes that are #pinterestgoals but have to find ways to do it on a broke girl budget. Let me know in the comments what your ride or die decor piece is in your room or any of your dream pieces.

  1. I’m loving this aesthetic! I am looking to switch up my room’s decor soon, so this is great inspiration. Aqua and white are always a good combo. Thanks for sharing!
