How to set up a bedroom under €300 (excluding bed and chandelier)

Setting up a complete bedroom can be a big task, especially if you are saving for collage like I am. And yes my room costs less then my shoos, not going to lie. But they where on sale and they where Chanel.

Back to the topic of the day, how the hell did I get everything to be so cheap. I’ll explain it step by step.

1. what do you need.

Make a list of everything you need in function of the objects you already have. Like if you have a lot of books you need a bookcase. If you have more shoos than books, get a shelf for your books instead of the bookcase.

2. Buying according to what you have

Check the items you own.

Ask yourself these questions:

What do I have?

How much of it do I have?

Are there more things I want to add to my collection?

This way the furniture will be big enough.


3. Plan your shopping trip.

Everything I have in my room is from IKEA. IKEA is know to be a cheap store but all the small bits and bobs can give you a heart attack on the checkout line. So I planned exactly what I was going to buy online 2 days in advance.

Day 1

I picked what my heart desired as we all do. Even if its not needed.

Day 2

I went true the list again. Checking for cheaper and smarter options to fit my needs. Sometimes you can find almost the same item for a fraction of the price. IKEA always has promotions you just need to check for them. For example a laundry basket. You can get it for €20 or for €3, you just need to check


4. Leave the credit card at home

If you don’t want to spend a lot of money just leave your card at home and take cash. This was one of the best things I did. You can’t spend what you don’t have.

Happy shopping 🙂
