If you’re still shopping for dorm items, you’re in luck. Several retailers have slashed prices in the home decor department this week and we’re seeing some amazing deals for items that — while not necessarily labeled “college” — would be perfect for a dorm or shared apartment. Whether you’re searching for the perfect twin XL duvet cover or trying to get the best deal on a mini-fridge, this roundup of sales is sure to help you check off an item or two on your list. And you might even find something you didn’t know you needed like a memory foam twin XL mattress topper for just $9!


Target’s weekly ad has tons of dorm deals for stocking up on the basics. You can score a mini microwave for less than $50, a mini-fridge for less than $100 and scoop up some trendy twin XL sheet sets such as these tiny daisies from Opalhouse. We had our eye on the blue leopard print, too.


Dorm rooms can look pretty cookie cutter with plain, beige walls and utilitarian furniture, but a couple of statement pieces can turn a ho-hum room into a space full of personality and cozy vibes. Anthropologie always has swoon-worthy decor, and right now there are tons of statement pieces on sale that you don’t actually have to splurge on, from textured accent rugs to a chic chair upgrade. You can even save on new decor and items outside of the sale, too, with Anthropologie’s 20 percent discount for teachers and college students.

Bed Bath & Beyond

BB&B is always a go-to for everything dorm shopping, and right now you can save big on the small appliances you’ll definitely need such as this compact Bissell vacuum for quick cleanups or a Keurig coffee machine for late-night study sessions. The retailer also extended its $20 small appliance sale from July; so, you can still score name brand items like this Black + Decker kettle for just $20. An electric kettle is great for tea, but it’s also handy for making college staples such as ramen noodles or oatmeal.

Urban Outfitters

Duvet covers are one of the best ways to bring color and pattern into a dorm, especially if you’re not allowed to hang art on the walls, but shopping for that oddly-specific twin XL size can be frustrating as not every retailer carries it. If you’re still searching for the perfect dorm bedding, head over to Urban Outfitters. There are so many options (in twin XL!) on sale right now and some sets are even less than $50, and the prints are gorgeous. There are tons of trendy, vintage-inspired florals to choose from.
