Walmart's Dress Up Your Space

I can’t believe my son will be a senior in high school.  Where has the time gone?

I can still remember when he was an infant, he would sleep right next to me every single night. He didn’t care for his crib much. Those nights I would put him down in his bed, he would fuss and cry til’ I grabbed him and placed him on my bed.  You could say he was spoiled but he was my baby.  I knew this stage wouldn’t last long so I did what I had to do to get us both sleep.  It worked and I didn’t mind. After all, he was my first-born child.


Soon, he will be 17 and one more year he will be in college. He’s still indecisive about which college he wants to go to but he’s definitely sure that he wants to dorm.  I know what its like to dorm. I lived in a dorm room for the first two years of college.  I went back home my junior year after my dad passed away but I never regretted the time I spent in the dorm room. It was truly an experience of a lifetime. It helped me grow into the person I am today.  I can’t wait for my son to experience the dorm life.

What a relief to know that Walmart has our back when it’s time to “dress up his space.”

From brand-name electronics to dorm essentials and NCAA apparel, Walmart is here to help college students afford the items they want and need – without compromising on brand or style.

College students can get everything they need to decorate and personalize their new apartment or dorm for less at Walmart.

Walmart has a great assortment of must-have items like sheets, towels, rugs, lamps and more for under $15.  Waste basket for $.97; bath mat for $3; 3-piece soft microfiber sheet set for $14.97; decorative pillow (in various colors/patterns) for $9.97; Decorative art for $7.97.
