Target Boho Chic Dorm
Target

Not to panic you, but all of those back-to-school sales and posters everywhere aren't just stores pushing their stuff on you (though it's certainly a factor). Summer's slipping away fast, which means the first day back is coming up faster than you might realize. It's an even taller order for college students, since getting packed up to live in a dorm isn't as easy as making a quick run to call that basic black binder "good enough." (If you're nodding because this is you, maybe try to spice things up with a few DIY supplies).

No matter if you're going into your first year or headed into your last, making your university housing a home away from home is vital to fending off homesickness. Plus, it definitely makes inviting friends over that much more exciting. Yes, dorm-envy is real, and if you want to be on the receiving end — rather than dishing it out — it's time to hit up shop.

This year's selection is crazy good, but the best part is that you can save 15 percent off anything you buy from , and then pick it all up at the store closest to your campus when school starts. Our picks below will get you psyched to go back — seriously.
