Money Saving Tip for College Freshmen Shopping for Twin XL Bedding


Save Money When Shopping for Twin XL Bedding for College

It's true. You do need a twin XL fitted sheet, bed bug protection, mattress topper, and pad for a good night's sleep on the typical dorm room twin XL mattress. While a twin XL comforter set is preferable, if you plan to move from your dorm room with a twin XL bed into an apartment with a larger full or queen size bed by your sophomore year of college and money is an issue, you may want to consider purchasing a full or queen size comforter set instead of a twin XL comforter set to save yourself a little money in the long run; especially, if you are going to raise your dorm room bed for storage. As long as the comforter is 90 inches or longer and the pattern works on the bed, you can make it work in your dorm room. The additional length on the sides can be used to hide the stored items underneath your raised bed so you won't need to invest in a twin XL bed skirt. 

Best of all, when you move from your dorm room into an apartment next year, you'll only need to buy new sheets, bed bug protection, a mattress topper, and pad because your comforter set should fit if you planned accordingly. You’ll also have two matching pillow shams instead of one.

Just a money saving tip for budget challenged college bound freshmen from DormSmart. Remember, we carry many options for every budget.
