Although it totally depresses me that stores start selling back to school supplies in June (sad reminders that summer will be over before you know it), I do enjoy back to school dorm stuff sales in August. A bunch of stores are advertising sales for cute organizational stuff, bathroom supplies, and small pieces of furniture. Target has some super cute things on sale this week.
These very cute stick lamps come in a slew of colors and patterns and are only $12 at Target this week! I might get one for my office. The black/white one is already sold out online, but is available in store.
They are also advertising this simple, cute black tv cart for just $15. I haven't seen it in store, so I don't know what the quality of this thing will be, but it got some good reviews. I can totally picture this with a DIY upgrade of nicer feet (I can't tell in the picture, but it looks like its on cheap wheels). You could also use some nice rich fabric to create a little curtain door for the front to dress it up a bit.
They also have some nice, small desks and other stuff on sale that are available in store. Stayed tuned for other back to school decorating bargains and deals, I will be posting more as I find them.
